I can't describe how badly I needed to ride this morning. Work has been a complete nightmare this week, on top of that I learned that my grandmother passed away. We were very close despite the fact that after 101 years of living in Texas she never learned to speak english and my spanish speaking ability never progressed beyond a certain level. Despite that we always managed to understand each other. No, this hasn't been a good week.
I was hoping to hit a few yard sales. There seemed to be quite a few in the neighborhood yesterday, but this was the only one I ran across today.
The bluebonnets were out in force, for you folks living in other parts of the country (or world) the bluebonnet is the Texas state flower. They grow everywhere down here.
I've got a brand new camera that I'm learning how to use. It's a Samsung TL500. It was on sale for $309 on Amazon. Hopefully my photos will improve as I brush up on my manual photography.
Still messing with the camera-it's got an articulating screen which makes it easy to take photos from weird angles.
Time for lunch. Just before heading home I stopped at one of out new eating establishments, Jersey Mike's Subs on Hulen Street. This is their Philly Cheesesteak-not bad.
**Random Afterthought**After reading my grandmother's obituary (linked above), I"m reminded that some of the older men in my family had very odd names, all beginning with the letter "P" for some reason. My father's name was Protacio (he went by Pete), my grandfather's name was Procacio, there's Procopio, and finally Policarpio (This is the spanish version of the biblical name Polycarp).
