Pic Of The Day - 02.24.15 - I'm Intrigued

Every now and then, I run across this plant in different neighborhoods and there is one blossoming in The Calvinator's new 'hood. I believe it is called a Dwarf Bottlebrush (Callistemon citrinus 'Little John'). They're just so cute!

Pic(s) Of The Day - 02.23.15 - Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

So...I stopped at HEB, as I am so prone to doing, and picked up a few things. As I proceeded to the check-out line, I noticed these orchids.

I walked over to admire and price them and all I did was admire. I didn't want to spend $69.99 on a plant that I would possible kill. So, how does my garden grow? Just fine at HEB!

Pic Of The Day - 02.22.15 - Poodles On The Bayou

I was invited to a birthday party on Sunday for a longtime friend. The theme was Poodles On The Bayou. I was debating about taking The Calvinator to the party but being that he is not a poodle, I opted not to do so. And yes, there were poodles at the party as well as a Barbie birthday cake.

Pic Of The Day - 02.21.15 - Hello Dali

I'm sure I'm not the first person to use that title but I think it's cute.

While I was out running around on Saturday, it started to rain and a couple of times it was a deluge.

While I was HEB waiting for the rain to let up, I snapped this photo. It is an apartment building on Dunlavy. The image looks like something Salvador Dali would paint.

Pic Of The Day - 02.20.15 - Room With A View-REEF

Once or twice a year, I'm invited to the private dining room at REEF. And, thus was the case on Friday. It was belated Holiday Party for my department and we did the White Elephant Exchange.

The view from the room is great. This is what you see.

Eat & Drink For A Good Cause

"It’s hard to believe Brock Wagner and Chris Shepherd have never collaborated on a beer dinner. They’ve decided to remedy the situation by creating a dinner that’s so special, 36 seats will be auctioned off and proceeds donated to charity (Hay Merchant’s neighbor Legacy Community Health Services).

Underbelly food. Rare Saint Arnold beers. Conversation with Brock and Chris. This is all happening on Wednesday, March 11 at Underbelly."

So how can you get one of the 36 seats by bidding at Underbelly. Click here to read the rest of the story and to get instructions. Don't delay! Bidding ends on March 1.

Pic Of The Day - 02.19.15 - I'm Gonna Swing From The Chandelier

I did a walk-thru at DeGaulle and Hughes Hangar. I've been to both places before but maybe it was because they were both void of people, I could actually appreciate the decor.

This is my favorite photo from the day. It had me humming Sia's Chandelier.
