More blooms

The queens wreath is happy as well as my neighbors honeysuckle

and I have to tell you the story about this little tree.....

Originally the neighbors had one of these trees on the other side of the block wall and apparently a nut fell down on my side of the fence and started this tree and the neighbors tore theirs down:) The butterfly is metal and made for me by a friend, it is tethered into the ground so it won't fly away in the wind.

This week the high is 85 which is like early summer for us here and why we get blooms twice.

I have used direct TV for many years now and just tired of paying for stuff I never watch and not finding things I wanted to watch so investigated a program call
maybe some of you already have or know about this but in case you don't this is a great company with so much to offer and at a reasonable price. I have contacted them a couple of times with questions and I was not put on hold forever and was treated as if I were a queen. Since my TV is older I had to get this
and again when I called the company they helped me set it up and was more patient than you can believe and when I spoke to them again today about a problem that showed up, again no long wait and fixed at the blink of a eye. If you are unhappy with your TV viewing check this out, you won't be sorry.

The only drive through post office

This is the Old Chicago Main Post Office, it is nine stories tall and has a expressway through it. It was build in 1921 and was expanded in 1932 in order to serve Chicago's great volume of postal business because of the mail-order business of Montgomery Ward (the largest retailer in the United States) and of Sears. By 2019 the structure will include offices for Walgreen's and also become the headquarters of the Ferrara Candy Co.

Texas cont.

I seem to easily get distracted these days so my follow up on our trip to Texas is late in coming. We took one day and visited the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library in College Station. It is so well done and must have took hours and hours putting it all together. Here are a few pictures.
The main entrance

This desk has drawers on both sides and is a replica of the white house.

One of many pictures

I could have taken a lot more pictures as they even had his boat displayed. They had many movies showing different things that happened during his presidency and Pictures of inside the White House during their stay. I enjoyed getting to see it and with the granddaughter too.
