The Letter "V" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The twenty-second issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE TWENT-SECOND LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "V" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with the Letter "V";
(B) "Violet" (Tom's choice);
(C) A Favorite; and
(D) Reflections.
_ _ _ _


(A.1) Starts with the Letter "V":   Vehicle starts with the letter "V".  We must now stay in our Vehicles to pick up the library books we have checked out on the phone.  No entrance to the library yet.

But I had to go on-line to pay for my checked out book that I have list.  Plus a five dollar "handling" charge.  Had we been able to handle that book?  

(A.2Vehicles I have owned.    Actually I should have said 'that "we" have owned' although five of them I bought while I was not married.  See the list below.  Or click here (it omits the Sears Vespa Motorscooter and the 1984 ford thunderbird).


(B) "Violet" (Tom's choice):   We call this a "Lily of the Nile" but more appropriately it is an "Agapanthus".  It's kind of Violet Blue.

My interest really is the little Bunny Rabbit behind and between the flowers.   She was inspecting this hole which she had dug the day before.

We think she was preparing a place to have and keep her babies.  But probably she has chosen another place due to the busier traffic in our backyard.   Moving makes us happy as we have had four little bunnies die in our pool.  Her "nest" picture above on the right.


(C) A Favorite:  This is the Bunny Rabbit


(D) Reflections:  A beautiful sunset was mostly obscured by the houses on our street across from our house which faces West.    We saw a part of it as  Reflections in the upstairs windows of the house across and one house to the left from ours.


(EA Lagniappe:  The parts of the sunset that we could see from our driveway.

Reds don't come out with my Sony pocket camera as it tries to suppress it as red eye.  There likely is a way to force it to not think redeye but I let it be.
_ _ _ _

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish):

(1) What comes to mind when you think of "Violet"? I think of the first flowers that I picked.  The Wild Violets grew all over the part of Eastern Nebraska where I grew up (out in the hill country West of the Missouri River about seven miles, between Herman and Tekamah), almost as common as the Dandelion.  Probably I picked Dandelions first. 

(2) Where was the last Rabbit Hole that you saw?  Or the first one?  I had never seen a Rabbit Hole before in all my long life.  I had read of them, both in Nursery Rhymes and other literature.

Bonus Questions:

(1) What is your favorite "V" word? This time it will be Undecided.  That is my official political viewpoint for poles but I'd rather call it Independent.  I keep my blogs free of political talk, this is the closest I've come in the 15 years I've blogged.   If there is a political comment I quickly remove it and slap the wrist of whoever left it.)

(2) When did you last list the vehicles that you have owned?  How many do you think you have owned?   I have kept a list on my Blog for several years.

Here are the cars and other vehicles in my life--listed in order of purchase: [should I blog on this as part of my memoirs? (Note:  It is all about the Girls in my life]

The Letter "U" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections


BABY GIRL !!!
Our oldest great granddaughter was due to have us
a new Baby Girl Great Great-granddaughter last week. That happened Thursday night.  

The twenty-first issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE TWENT-IFIRST LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "U" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with the Letter "U";
(B) "Under" (Tom's choice);
(C) A Favorite; and
(D) Reflections.
_ _ _ _



(B) "Under" (Tom's choice):   Under the Bridge in Sydney, Australia on our Ferry Ride.   For most of my posts about Sydney and our January 2014 visit, click here

We had a pleasant ferry ride (Sidney Ferries) around the Harbor on the Inner Harbour Ferry.  It left the Circular Quay and sailed over to the Australian National Maritime Museum.  I liked going under the Harbour Bridge.  You can see the Sydney Opera House in the background.
We rode the train over and back across that bridge, we took the ferry to Manly Beach for a morning, we rode the tram to the Harbor Fish Market, and took the bus to Bondi Beach for our major rides.  There were many more as Sydney has a wonderful public transportation system.  Since Mrs. Jim and I were seniors our all day tickets to all modes, even the ferry and the train, were $2.50 AUS each day.


(A) Starts with the Letter "U":  Unknown starts with "U".  This soup was good, great, as it is homemade by Mrs. Jim. but I don't know what kind it was.  Nor do I know the fried stuff on the left.
I will let you guess what kind of goodies we ate? 
(highlight the blank area below for the correct answers)

(Oops, Mrs. Jim said it was part of our lunch
at Suzie Wong's on a Sunday after church. 
It was really good, Hot and Sour soup. 
The other was part of our lunch, neither
of us knew what it was, just Chinese.)

 
[click on a photo to make it bigger]
(C) A Favorite:  Again we will let the age of the fellow on the left, me, be Unknown.  The cake is chocolate, my favorite kind.  We were celebrating at an Unknown restaurant. 

[click on picture for larger view]
(D) ReflectionsUphill pitch.  The green on this hole was very steep and the ball didn't want to stay high.  Site was the Wedgewood Public Golf Course, Conroe, Texas, now closed.  Conroe is just north of Houston, where the little hills start.  This was my Favorite public course to play.
 _ _ _ _
 
My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish):

(1) What comes to mind when you think of "Under"? I think of my dictionary that I hardly use anymore.  It is an "Under the Bridge with Dick and Harry", 1970's edition.

(2) When was the last Birthday that you celebrated?  Our oldest great granddaughter was due to have us a new Baby Girl Great Greatgranddaughter last week. That happened just during the night now.  6.8 pound BABY GIRL.

Bonus Questions:

(1) What is your favorite "U" word? This time it will be Undecided.  That is my official political viewpoint for poles but I'd rather call it Independent.  I keep my blogs free of political talk, this is the closest I've come in the 15 years I've blogged.   If there is a political comment I quickly remove it and slap the wrist of whoever left it.)

(2) When did you last play a sport?   I have not played Golf for about seven years.  My artificial knee joint gave me fits after playing and lasted a day and a half after.  But I may learn to play "Old Men Golf" this year.  Walking is my only sport at the moment.

The Letter "T" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The twentieth issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE TWENTIETH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "T" Prompts are: 
(A) Starts with the Letter "T";  
(B) "Tree" (Tom's choice); 
(C) A Favorite; and 
(D) Reflections. 
_ _ _ _ 



(A) Starts with the Letter "T":  "Tadpoles" starts with the letter "T".  This is a copy of the pictorial explanation for children of how they turn into Frogs which was included with our Houston Chronicle for Sunday, April 26, 2020. 



(B) "Tree" (Tom's choice):   This tree is a palm tree along our back yard fence. 



(C) A Favorite:   "They" are gone.  They being Mana Dove and Baby Bird.  Baby has finally hatched, she was sitting on our shoe wiping rug at the front door.   Mrs. Jim shooed a little rabbit that was watching from down at the curb.  Rabbits do eat small birds.  I went back in for a camera.  

Baby likes being gone and was gone by the time I returned with the camera.  But last night before bedtime both mother and kid they were back in their nest in a niche under the eves at the house and garage intersection.

Now this morning Mana Dove and Baby Bird have gone again, all day so far. Probably they went to be with Mama's brood of three others born about a month ago.  Adios (Watch "Adi Beagle Dog play after her bath goes wild!" on YouTube https://youtu.be/Ca20rBjwpcI)



(D) Reflections:   This is a 'walk picture,' along the other side of the street at the end of our block. That street is between the smaller trees and the house.in the background.   There is a sidewalk over there also, parallel to this one in the foreground. 
_ _ _ _  

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish):

(1) What comes to mind when you think of a "Tree"?  I think of a large Tree that was back home at the edge of our grove.  I had built a nice 
Treehouse in it.  Zombie trees are my favorites to find. 
(2) When was the last Birthng thing event you have have had lately or some other time in your life that you would like to share?  Our oldest  great granddaughter was due to have us a new Baby Girl Great Greatgranddaughter yesterday.  That didn't happen, maybe today she will come.

Bonus Questions: 

(1) What is your favorite "T"word?  This time it will NOT be "
Taxes".   I am thinking they need to go up with all the Bailout Money that Congress is passing out.  We are in a low bracket so maybe our Bailout Checks will cover our dues.   
(2)  When did you last see a Tadpole?    I have NEVER SEEN A TADPOLE that I know of.  Do they really exist?

The Letter "S" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

The nineteenth issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE NINETEENTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "S" Prompts are: 
(A) Starts with the Letter "S";  
(B) "Straight" (Tom's choice); 
(C) A Favorite; and 
(D) Reflections. 
_ _ _ _ 

[Click twice to read my Snoopy Cartoon - Note dresser top Reflections]

(A) Starts with the Letter "S":  "Starting Line" starts with "S".  These small toy cars that I keep on my dresser are ready to Start their race

After three semesters at the University of Nebraska I dropped out and got a job at the Elgin Watch Factory in Lincoln, Nebraska.  One of our quality control inspectors, Bill Robinson, drove a race car on our dirt car track out at edge of town.  I was invited to join his racing crew. 

A toy 1934 Ford Coupe 
Street Rod (read below)


(C) A Favorite:  Our race car, Number 88, was a pretty blue 1934 Ford Coupe.  It was "Modified Stock, " which meant hopped up but it had to look "Stock".  Once in a while I got to drive.  It was very fast but would never win the "A Feature Race" so we held it back in the Heat Races so we could run in the "B Feature Race" in which we would most always win.

We quit racing the car when our sponsor would not finance a new engine as we had thrown a piston through the cylinder wall.  We sleeved the cylinder and Bill used it in a pristine 1940 Ford Coupe street car.  We did get another sponsor to finance a 1937 Chevy for us. 

The toy 1934 Ford above is 1:25 scale and is sold at
F i r s t   G e a r   C o. for $49.99.  
For more go here.


(B) "Straight" (Tom's choice):  "Straight from the Horses Mouth", the Bible verse on this May calendar I dug out yesterday. It echoed our last Sunday's sermon on "The Good Shepherd"  from John 10. 

At verse 11 it says "The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."  Our minister told us (via the streaming video in the living room) that in the fields where the shelters are very primitive and the Shepherd sleeps laying in the doorway so he knows when someone or someone tries to enter or leave.  

Hearing that from both the calendar and the preacher tells me there is a message there that I should heed. This Mother's Day weekend's message will be given by a lady at  online, Saturday at 6PM or Sunday at 9:30 or 11:00AM Central Daylight Time.

The calendar picture is at "Shepherds' Field outside Bethlehem, Israel." (googled link for more pictures).  The trees are olive trees, some  are very old. The calendar is from "Open Windows".


(D) Reflections:  Another walk picture Reflection.  We are starting these neighborhood walks now earlier in the morning or after the sun goes down.  Temps are getting in to the nineties F. 

(E) Lagnappe for you.  On my "Christmas Tree Farm" blog I have two links posted for Corona Virus 19, one for international  countries and one for the states' statistical numbers.  Our Texas numbers are increasing faster and faster but we are open.   Go figure.

State by State(click or paste from below)
https://coronavirus.1point3acres.com/en 
 _ _ _ _

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish):

(1) What comes to mind when you think of "Straight"? I think of a large Straight edge drafting ruler that I have tucked away someplace.
(2) What is an exciting thing you have done lately or some other time in your life?  Loosing my wallet in Egypt.  I walked through the shipyard to where our bus stopped and found it in the seat I had been sitting in.  A police car stopped me and the officers questioned me, then they took me back to our ship.

Bonus Questions: 

(1) What is your favorite "S" word?  This time it will be "Sailor"   When I was young I always wanted to be a Sailor.  Towards the end a work life I dreamed of living on a Tug Boat and working it for several more years.  In the dream my sister would buy in and also her and SIL would live there too.  Now I know a Tug Boat Captain, she is one of the few lady tug boat drivers and is one of my Facebook friends.  One of our two Sunday School teacher's father was a tug boat and he sometimes relates to incidents of that life during his lesson.


(2)  Do you have any posted Reflection pictures of areas where you use for taking walks?    I have pictures of ours posted here Quite Often.  We have pretty places to walk.

The Letter "R" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The eighteenth issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE EIGHTEENTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "R" Prompts are: 
(A) Starts with the Letter "R";  
(B) "Red" (Tom's choice); 
(C) A Favorite; and 
(D) Reflections. 

During the month ofApril 2020, I was participating in the National Poetry Writing Month daily by posting of a poem of sorts. Mine are here , NaPoWriMo 2020, poems for this year.  
I have been doing this since 2015.  Note:  a couple days may not come up with that link.  Find the missing date posts for those 

_ _ _ _ 



(A) Starts with the Letter "R":  Roses are Red and start with "R".  Whatcamacallits are Yellow. 

These are along the sidewalks where we walk but not on the green walking paths. We have three Rose patches in our backyard landscaping.   The too are very pretty, we finally had some rain and I fertilized


(B) "Red" (Tom's choice):  No, not a political map today, it is back to work states that are in Red.  Still very political though, for sure Texas numbers aren't for it, we are still on the up slope. 

Note: this is last Tuesday's data being charted.


(C) A Favorite:  These are Corndogs that I cooked.  Corndogs, sliced dill pickles, and Diet Cokes with corn chips on the table.

I cook corn dogs, hot dogs, deli turkey sandwiches, egg and biscuit sandwiches,  and various frozen meals and packaged, canned, or homemade soup. 

Mrs. Jim  cooks more complicated things, some use recipes.  We mostly use groceries we have on hand.  Our youngest daughter and BIL shop when we make a list. 

Then sometimes we go out to eat, out to get the food, taking it out and zway back home to eat. Pizza and Hamburgers are tied for popularity.  



This is one of four plates we had from Sunday's 'Fajita for one' and appetizer Quesadillas.   After Internet church (since we will liberated tomorrow there will be regular services, three, sitting every other row and seven feet apart) we drove a couple of miles to our favorite Mexican restaurant to get our take out order.



(D) Reflections:  We had a short stop along the way on a recent walk.  There are two small falls and you see the front on Reflectig nicely.

Click on the picture a  couple of times to get a more in close view.  The path Mrs. Jim  is standing on goes either past to a playground and tennis area or takes you left to walk over a small bridge between the falls.
 _ _ _ _ 

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish).

(1)  What comes to mind when you think of "Red?   I think of poor Red Ridinghood.  Also Red Adair (1915-2004), an oil industry fire fighter  and part time race car and boat driver.  I first saw him driving and having conservation at a car race in 1969.  Later we would sometimes eat the same time at  a little hamburger place between  Clear Lake boat docks and NASA Road 1. He would come via his boat, me by a car for noon lunch break during work.
(2)  What is the first thing you will now that Corona Virus staying in has been relaxed?  Or 'will do' if it hasn't come yet?   Either go to Walmart for groceries next Tuesday morning to shop for myself--daughter and SIL have been going--or to La Madeleine for lunch. 


 Bonus Questions: 


(1) what is your favorite "R" word?  This time it will be "Rain"   We've been very dry and warm, 10 degrees F higher for the winter and spring average.

(2)  Do you have any posted pictures of areas where you use for taking walks?    I have pictures of ours posted here Quite Often but very few of the Malls where we walk in the hot of summer.  Air Conditioned, I do have pictures but hardly any have I posted.

The Letter "Q" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The seventeenth issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE SEVENTEENTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "Q" Prompts are: 
(A) Starts with the Letter "Q";  
(B) "Quantity" (Tom's choice); 
(C) A Favorite; and 
(D) Reflections. 

Again this month, April 2020, I am participating in the National Poetry Writing Month daily posting of a poem of sorts. Mine are here at the "Labels" line, NaPoWriMo 2020, for this year.  
_ _ _ _ 



(A) Starts with the Letter "Q":  "Quiet" starts with the letter "Q".  Our state parks may open this weekend, word from our Texas  Governor Abbot.   Things were Quiet for this photo but won't be for long.  BTW, this parks has Texas Alligators that are Quietly Sleeping around.   




(B) "Quantity" (Tom's choice):  There is a large Quantity of Penquins in the two pictures.  You can count them all if you would like.  I want the number for each of the pictures.  I will give you a grade for extra credit if you do.

I took this from the very south edge of Africa.  The southernmost point of Africa is Cape Agulhas about 150 kilometres (90 mi) to the east-southeast of the Cape of Good Hope.[1]  WeYou would get to Antarctica if you would swim further south.  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_of_Good_Hope

(C) A Favorite:   Our backyard is Quite Pretty.  This is the center half, it is the smallest we've had since 1976 at 9o feet wide.  

Also, KP came over yesterday for a long swim and play in the water.  She might come today as we are  expecting it to reach 92 degrees Fahrenheit. 


(D) Reflections:   This is a Queer Picture.  I was wanting to take the Morning Fog on the right, with the street light reflecting in the fog. 

But when I looked at what I had it showed the window Reflecting the room behind me.  Very Queer.  
 _ _ _ _  

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish).

(1)  What comes to mind when you think of "Quantity?   I think of poor Mother Hubbard.  
(2)  When is the Corona Virus going to be gone?   I am waiting for your answers, Mrs. Jim may have an idea, it is her turn to make decisions today.

 Bonus Questions: 


(1) what is your favorite "Q" word?  This time it will be "Queen"   She might bring some civility to our country.

(2)  Do you have any pictures of your backyard or other outside play area that you use?    I have pictures of ours posted here Quite Often.

The Letter "P" ~~ Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The sixteenth issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020...

(THE SIXTEENTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "P" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with the Letter "P";
(B) "Pair" (Tom's choice);
(C) A Favorite;
(D) Reflections.

Again this month, April 2020, I am participating in the National Poetry Writing Month daily posting of a poem of sorts. Mine are here, , for this year. 
_ _ _ _ 


(A) Starts with the Letter "P":  "Park" starts with "P".  Here I was parked on the early slopes of Mt. Franklin in El Paso (Texas).  I was age 21 and stationed there at the Fort Bliss U.S. Army post.  This was for five years and three kids born at the William Beaumont U.S. Army Hospital.  One other, our oldest daughter was born at a civilian hospital.

The car is my 1950 Jimmy Dean Mercury 2-Door.  I traded it for my equity in my 1956 Ford Sunliner Convertible after I was drafted into the Army.  That car was about a year old, I had purchased it new and my monthly payments were more than a Private's pay, married and two kids.  

Mount Franklin overlooked El Paso and was easy to climb.  I would climb up and take the cable car down.  


(B) "Pair" (Tom's choice):  The bird ponders a pair of pairs walking, separated about six feet apart, Governor's orders. 


(C) A Favorite:  A pair of Corn Dog Lunches that I made.  The drink is Diet Coke, the pickle slices are Dill.  I have made a lot of the noon lunches since our 'lock-in'.


 (D) Reflections:  Burial grounds for Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales.  It is in England northwest of London quite a ways, at the family "Althorpe" Mansion and Gardens.

I wrote my short poem in tribute of her and the burial cover for Wednesday's NaPoWriMo, National Poetry Writing Month, Day 14https://jimmiehov6.blogspot.com/2020/04/day-14-of-naplpowrimo-2020-tribute-poem.html 


(E) Lagniappe:  "P" is also for Pretty.  This is a pretty little bouquet made from some pretty small flowers that I have picked on our daily 30-minute walks.
 _ _ _ _ 

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you wish).

(1)  What comes to mind when you think of pairs?   Mine is two Pairs of Docker sandals that I bought when on sale from Penny's.  Also my firstborn children are a pair, twins.
(2)  When is the last time you had a bouquet of pretty flowers?   I don't remember, Mrs. Jim and I both from time to time make up a bouquet, Mrs. Jim will occasionally buy some at the Kroger grocery strore.

 Bonus Questions: 


(1) what is your favorite "P" word?  This time it will be "Peace"   I will be so glad when we can have peace in the world like years not too far back.  The Bible says we will always have wars and rumors of wars.

(2)  Do you have any pictures of cars you owned in the past, perhaps they are old cars of interest now?    I don't have pictures of cars I have owned, especially ones before this Mercury and some after as most ofd our early pictures were ruined when ouer house flooded.  I wish I had a few of those now.

(3)  Have you been on a lot of walks now that we are confined.  Tell about it if so, PLEASE.   Mrs. Jim and I have started walking for at least 30 minutes each day, doctors' orders.  Each of our doctors requested separately that we do this, on the same day.  And those doctors probably aren't acquainted.  Almost makes on think this was Provedential.
