Pic Of The Day - 04.15.15 - Ach Choo

This is Trachelospermum jasminoides also known as Star Jasmine or Confederate Jessamine. Regardless of what you call it, it is pretty to look and smells lovely but it makes me sneeze.

In The Calvinator's previous 'hood, several neighbors had walls of it and well, it's the same thing in his new 'hood. It won't be around long.

Pic Of The Day - 04.14.15 - Looking for Mr. Goodbar

I know I used a pun for the title but this does resonate with me. It's something I saw on Facebook on Tuesday.

Pic Of The Day - 04.13.15 - Art Car

Houston's Art Car Parade. I didn't attend. In fact, it's been several years since I've attended. Anywho, this vehicle is parked outside of The Calvinator's Upper Kirby Crib. From what I can tell, it is a salute to the State of Texas and the San Jacinto monument.

Pic Of The Day - 04.12.15 - Lone Star Pageant

I'm quite the chameleon. I think part of that is because I have eclectic tastes. I'm a bon vivant.

So where did Sunday night find me? At Neon Boots. I went from a black tie affair on Saturday night to a LGBT pageant on Sunday.

ERSICSS hosted the Lone Star Pageant so Chree, Lynne, Gary, David and I hopped into Chree's chariot and off we went. Well, actually, Lynne met us there and it wasn't a chariot but I'm getting into the minutiae.

Anywho, it was a fun time on Sunday but I was so sleepy on Monday morning.

Congratulations to all of the winners!

Pic(s) Of The Day - 04.11.15 - Scenes From A Saturday

I'm not sure what type of plant this is but it reminds me of an egg. It's in The Calvinator's Upper Kirby 'hood.
If you remember my photo of the other oleander, you can definitely tell this is white and the other has an orange tint.
Saturday was National Pet Day. This is how The Calvinator celebrated. Wait! He does this everyday!
Another night in a tuxedo and this time it was for Houston HRC. We were at the Westin Galleria and Ty Herndon performed a couple of songs for the guests.

Pic Of The Day - 04.10.15 - Oleander

From what I can tell this is an oleander. However, I've never seen one with this shade of orange. It's in The Calvinator's Upper Kirby 'hood.

Pic Of The Day - 04.09.15 - Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

Thursday was the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Annual Luncheon & Business Expo. If memory serves me correctly, it was the 22nd annual luncheon. I knew there were over 1,000 people in attendance but I didn't realize that it was actually closer to 1,500. That's a big luncheon!

And you never know who might just drop in. This time it was Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

In this photo are some of my co-workers who worked Legacy's booth in during the expo at the Hilton America's.
