Stone Bowls

You just cannot go wrong with any type of stone bowl to accessorize with.  Old and carved are the best--you get nature, texture, and interest in one item.

Shuttle Atlantis Rocket Boosters: Up Close and Personal

In commemoration of the landing of the Space Shuttle Atlantis this morning, here are some shots I was able to take while watching the solid rocket boosters being towed in after the launch.  It was a very special occasion.  Congratulations to the Atlantis crew for a successful mission, and WELCOME HOME!!!!

Shuttle Atlantis: Last Launch

Photo:  Stephen Clark, Spaceflight Now
The last shuttle launch, Atlantis, 2011.  I was not able to see the launch from this vantage point, but Stephen Clark of Spaceflight Now was.  And, I must say, it is nice to have friends (and family) in high places--otherwise I would not have these incredible photos of the launch.  I was in a Wendy's parking lot far, far away watching in awe.  Words cannot describe the experience of watching the shuttle launch, not to mention, the last shuttle to launch.  All I can say, is I was a proud American on that day...

Chillin' at Disney World

Chillin' with the fam at Disney World...

Chillin' at Cocoa Beach, Florida

Redwings on stump
I just returned from a trip to Florida to see the last launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis.  Took some time to go visit Cocoa Beach.  The rain had just broke long enough to run out to take in some fresh sea air...

I wish my 501's were a bit older--I would have loved to try a salt-water soak.   I only have a couple of weeks wear in them after I picked them up from Stag in Austin.

...hey sweet thing.

A bit of yoga after being on the road all day.
