Texas Sky Pollution -- Looking At the Sky
These pretty clouds are found in Willis, Texas, at the intersection of FM 1097 and Interstate Highway 45. We are north of the Houston P.O. about forty miles.
On that corner, with their corresponding signs gouging our visual appreciation of the sky, are a Shell gas station (with Taco Bell), a Texaco gas station (not shown--with a fast food chicken place), and this Jack-in-the-Box from last week.
You might ask what is on the other corner? Have a peek below:
I don't know how long this United States Flag on the commercial lot will last. It is prime property and is for sale.
There are two types of drivers that I don't like to follow. Thank goodness this one is turning off. His diesel puts out huge clouds of black smoke which I could never catch with the camera. I do believe that is worse than the smells coming from the outhouse he was moving.
And this one? You could advertise your own business interest on this large Texas sized commercial sign. There are others along the road from our subdivision over to I-45 but you would be bored. I will keep you posted if anything interesting shows up.
The other type driver to avoid following? A person driving a Lincoln Town Car. They are terribly slow and very unpredictable with their maneuvers.
And I suppose we must give Rachel an exception, I know she drives her big Town Car carefully. She does speed a little. ('Speeding Along' link) (her entire blog)

Baby KP is home now
Baby KP went home late Saturday afternoon. Since she was tiny and three weeks early the pediatrician wanted her to stay a full 48 hours and then have a couple of lab tests done after that time. [click on any picture for larger size view]
The first day home found her out traveling the neighborhood. I already can just see her up and down the street riding her tricycle. We have Karen's old one, I think it will be put back into service. After all it is a 'one owner' only ridden by a little old [now] lady.
Right now this is KP's favorite resting position. The chair was formerly Karen's grandmother's (link). It had resided with Mrs. Jim ever since she left home. We did have it refinished, tightened, and reglued as the kid should have nothing but the best.
