The talk is from catching up on family happenings, to what books are you reading now, what good movies have you seen lately, who is your favorite on American Idol or Dancing with the Stars? to the latest news. Sadden to hear that Dick Clarke died today. After reading that Thomas Kinkaide, who painted beautiful images and was quite a famous artist, and Mike Wallace a TV News icon, had both passed away this past week, it did not surprise me when I read that Dick Clarke had joined them in passing. What is it about the number 3?? Why do "things" happen in a series of 3 more times than not? Can't explain the reason why, only that we did lose 3 men who contributed their talents in their respective fields and each of them will be missed.
As I am writing this, my eyes are beginning to droop, my brain is beginning to shut down, so I will end this now and add to it in the morning. Remember I have many, many pics from Galveston to share.
Back again, since I babbled so much last night, I will put my focus on pics instead of words today.
For two days I wandered thru the historical neighborhoods in Galveston and found some real beauties. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do....
We have blue/green with red doors and red porch swings
sweet little cottages
beautiful porches and windows
red, white and blue ones where even the flowers in the yard were either red, white or blue
even the mono-tones of grey, white & black were stunning against the greens
a widow's peak atop this gorgeous home
who said you can't have a pink house?
or a yellow house with a tire swing in front
Even this soft blue looks right at home on these shutters
I was taken with this color combo since I have a white house, I thought these dark greys, dark reds and whites were quite stunning, might consider a re-do.
oh thought this was a stunning color combo
and peach and light taupe, even the flowers match the shutter color
doesn't this look like something right out of a southern romance novel?
So, here was the first bunch of Galveston photos. I could move into any of those homes right now, no hesitation. But as many beautiful ones that I presented here, there were many, many more that were not as lovely. There is still evidence of Hurricane Ike that roared thru here almost 4 years ago devastating many homes and businesses, along with beaches and piers. They have done an amazing job of re-building, but still there is many left to tend to.
