The Letter "O" -- Weekend Roundup and Reflections

The forty-first issue of Weekend Roundup for this year, 2020... (THE FIFTEENTH LETTER FOR THIS SERIES) - the Letter "O" Prompts are: 

(A) Starts with the Letter "O"; 

(B) "Orange" (Tom's Choice); 

(C) A Favorite; and 
(D) Reflections.
  _ _ _ _ 

(A) Starts with the Letter "O":  "Old" starts with the letter "O".  I am Old but this Model A Ford pickup is older

This is a 1928, 29, 30, or 31 Model A Ford Pickup.  I don't know who owns it but it was parked in the parking lot of First Baptist Church, Conroe, Texas.  It looks almost all original.  I have never owned a Model A and haven't driven one.  My parents had a 1929 Coupe when I was born.  I would like to have a Model A Ford Pickup but that isn't practical for us anymore.

(B) "Orange" (Tom's Choice):  This picture according to Oceania Cruises is supposed to be of Paris, France,  but I can't place where.  Here though,  my main concern is the Orange Citroen car.  Mrs. Jim would love to have a nice clean restored model like this.  I have a 1:18 scale model blue toy car, that is enough for me (link).

(C) A Favorite:  Our great niece and her new husband posing with their parents, her dad is our nephew.  Their wedding was last Saturday. 

(D) Reflections:  A TV capture from our Houston Channel 11 at the beginning of the weather report.

Bonus Questions: 

(1)  Have you ever had or driven an old car or driven one?   A Ford product if you have a choice.  Tell us  little about your experience.  For a few weeks my dad bought me for my junior year school car a pristine 1937 Ford Tudor owned by a LOL (Little Old Lady).  It reeked of her perfume but otherwise it was a really nice car. 

But Dad traded it in for a new Ford F1 Pickup because he thought the mechanical brakes might not stop fast enough with a novice driver behind the wheel.  I had no say-so because it was titled in his name, 21 was the legal age to own property back in those days.  Besides I think he really wanted a pickup for the farm. 
(2)  What is your favorite word beginning with the letter "O"?   Today I will choose the word "One" because it is a short word.  I like the song, "One is the Loneliest Number" and since starting tis blog post that song has been an ear worm for me.
