I am not a native of Lubbock, nor even of Texas. I was born and raised in Greenfield, Indiana, spent a couple of years living in Glasgow, Scotland, and then landed in Lubbock where I've been ever since. Have a look!

The school does not make up this entire centre, but this picture reminds me of a posh school in a movie.
Sorry for my absence the last few days; we went to see my brother-in-law graduate and I didn't have time to get my posts set up in advance.

Kind of old

I took this picture because of the "Established 1932" line; that's about as old as things get around here. :)

Someone IS there!

This little outdoor cafe is finally getting some use again after sitting empty all winter.

This little bunch of flowers is taped to a stop sign. Ordinarily, one only sees this sort of display where there has been a fatal auto accident, although this one is less that two blocks from my apartment and I'm sure I would have heard if that had happened. Perhaps someone wanted to be festive.

I'll just get the bus, then...

In honour of petrol prices continuing to skyrocket, here's a photo of a place I expect to spend a great deal of time in the near future.

Mooving Day

If you haven't been already, pop over to Lynn's blog to see the picture of the girl who was abducted while on holiday in Portugal... she could easily be anywhere by now.

Well, the city exchange was last week, but I dearly wanted to share this photograph. I'd only been in Indiana a few hours last Saturday when a neighbouring farmer needed to move his cattle from one pasture to another. So here they are, passing in front of my parents' house.

Again please do go look at the pictures on Lynn's blog. Thanks!

The rest of the story

This is the far end of the sculpture area from a few days ago. The more interesting part, you might say.

Educational and fun!

I love this-- it's part of a playground. There is also a section with the Braille alphabet.

Looks normal to me.

So I didn't post yesterday because I was flying between Indianapolis and Lubbock. Can't tell you how happy I was to get back. But my trip to Indiana was my inspiration for this post, because the fire hydrants in Greenfield are all different colours. They all also have a reflective strip just below the "lid" (I'm sure there's a proper word for it, but I do not know what it is). But here in Lubbock, the fire hydrants all look like this. At least, I can't think of any I've seen that do not.

# 100

The 100th Lubbock DP Post is this sculpture/seating area.

This rather lovely decorative screen is on a parking garage.

Buddy Holly

I think these banners are part of revatilising downtown Lubbock.

No prizes for guessing what this was before it was closed.

Perhaps I should buy a ticket.

I could probably find some uses for $6 million!

If anyone was fooled into thinking this is a Scotland-themed street in Lubbock, let me just say, I can only dream of being so lucky. :) This is, in fact, the corner of Argyle and Jamica streets in the heart of the Glasgow city centre.
