The Letter "O" ~~ Rev 04 - Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The 41st issue of Weekend Roundup for this year... (THE FIFTEENTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES)
- the Letter "O" Prompts are:
(A) Starts with the Letter "O"; (B) A Favorite;
(C) "O" for "Over". (Tom's choice); and (D) Reflections.

(A.1) Starts with the Letter "O":  Oranges start with "O".  This is KP again showing us the Orange Fruit, our local Sprouts Grocery store. 

(A.2) Starts with the Letter "O":  This is Our Backyard Orange Tree.  Some of the Oranges were getting ripe and I picked them.  But I have none to show now.

(B) A FavoriteOur Old House.  We bought before the building was finished and were able to make some changes.  It was our first owned house, we bought it in 1976 and sold it in 1999 when Mrs. Jim retired. 

It flooded once when we owned it, 33 inches of water inside, and later at least two other times.  Here it was finishing up with remodeling after the latest flood.

(C) "O" for "Over". (Tom's choice):  Historical Moon "Over" homes. 

(D) Reflections:  My Reflections here are mainly of the trees against the water.  We were Driving Over the Atchafalaya River Flood Basin.  Pretty full.  The Atchafalaya flows into the Mississippi River in the Baton Rouge area, before New Orleans.

My Two Questions (you can answer just one if you'd like):

1. Has you home ever flooded?  or your car?   Our home in the picture flooded in the  1979 Claudia Tropical Flood.  We lived in Galveston County then.  We also lost three cars and a motorcycle because the water in the street was much deeper than that in our driveway.  My 1969 Ford Thunderbird may have been resurected, I know the fellow in the junk yard was going to get the motorcycle going again. 

2. Do you take pictures in the grocery store, perhaps for your blog or for some other reason that you would like to write about?   If you do not take pictures in the stores why not?  I take them mostly for my blog.  A few I take because I just want to remember this event.  But then generally I cannot find the picture when I want it..  

Bonus Questions:
1. What is your favorite "Oword?  "Over" is my favorite "O" word because being over is just nice.  Most times there is freedom in being over.

2. What are your thoughts about Oranges?  Often I think of Christmas because when we were small there would generally be one in our hanging stockings
