FELIZ PRIMAVERA

Dazzling.  There is nothing anywhere that can approach the awe of Texas in the springtime.

Lady Bird Johnson, wife of President Lyndon Baines Johnson (1963-1969), started a program to beautify the roadways of the Texas Hill Country.  Her legacy heralds the onset of hope and renewal, and calls me home.  God Bless Texas!

Picnics in the Spring, one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon.

Some stretches of highway offer Bluebonnets as far as the eye can see.

Lady Bird’s palette comes in many hues.  Each offering their own contribution to the tapestry of beauty that is Primavera.

And meanwhile, it was 14 degrees with a wind chill of zero when I dropped my dear sweet Katie off at school this morning.  Ah, the good life, wut?

Motley Crew.  Posing and smiling at the State Farm 10 Mile a few years ago, an odd and rare union indeed.  Stories, man do I have stories.
