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
_ _ _ _
(A)Starts withtheLetter "O": "Old" starts with the letter "O". I amOldbut this Model A Ford pickup isolder.
This is a 1928, 29, 30, or 31 Model AFord 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.

(1) Have you ever had or driven anold caror 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.
