Weekend Roundup -- 20-18(b) (for letter "T") -- Reflections too

The 45th issue of Weekend Roundup for this year..
The week's prompts:
(1) Starts with "T"; (2) A Favorite; (3) Tall; and (4) Reflections

(2) A Favorite: KP's School honored Veteran relatives, Grandfather here, for a Veterans Day celebration.  We had breakfast in the library, there the fifth grade choir sang to us.  Then we <strike>marched</strike> moved to the stage in the auditorium for another program of the different classes singing the military branch songs, one branch per class. 
The morning was finalized by a parade of the students and their guests marching through the halls with the teachers and kids lining the sides.  Got lots of Hi-Fives and thumbs up.  This picture was taken after the parade.  Her school, of grades K-5, has over 1,000 students.  The "S" badge is my admittance and permission pass.

Cousins from Nebraska standing by Sam Houston (2006) 
(1) Starts with "T":  Texas starts with "T". The statue of Sam Houston (our president while Texas was a Republic) is alongside Interstate 45, coming into Houston from Huntsville, Texas. It stands 77 feet tall. The 67-ft. tall (plus 10-ft. base) statue is named "A Tribute to Courage."

You can read all about this large Sam Houston monument at  Jack and Linda were amazed. Long before they were leaving Texas, they too were saying, "everything is bigger in Texas."

(3) TallTall women scare me.  Especially when we are alone in an elevator.  I generally get off as soon as I can.
 - I posted of my fear with a couple of poems: ; and
 - Either of these links will tell you about this lady, she is the Tallest woman in Texas, perhaps in the United States or the Whole World.

(4) Reflections:  a Driving Picture I took on the way to the polls.  [click picture for larger view] This shows a pasture outside Fulshear, Texas [link] where we voted.
