As the OFM was briskly walking at the Memorial Park this morning in the bright cold sunshine we were approaching a small group of folks. One lady was wrapped in a small blanket covering her long sleeve flannel shirt and long pants. As we neared to her group of walkers, the OFM said to her “I bet you are thinking the same as me. This is enough winter for the year.” She laughed and shook her head in agreement as we passed each other. It was down to a miserable 52F.
Shortly later the OFM captured this view of the miserable cold winter weather we were enjoying here on the coastal prairie.
As we rounded the ponds another typical Texas picture popped up to be taken.
There were plenty of folks out for a walk to have fun “Howdying” them as we passed by each other.
We do not recall exactly where in the park the OFM was attracted to this colorful bunch of leaves but he just had to have a picture of them for our art folders.
And that is how a great day of shopping, visiting and generally trying to have tooooo much fun began.
Used to be a lot of working windmills around Texas. Nice to see they're still in use. I'm ready for winter to be over already.ReplyDelete
Was it a Chicago Aermotor windmill?ReplyDelete
I don't recall seeing a name on it but I will check the next time I am there.Delete
