Texas City Dike on a foggy Friday morning
March 28 · · Taken at Texas City Dike
Went to see the Texas City Dike Friday, expecting fog, and I was right! I was happy to see the anchor and propeller from the Texas City explosion of 1947 had been moved and displayed there.

Spirit of Texas City
Noble Park, on 1100 9th Ave North, was also undergoing changes. This park was originally the designated park for the Snug Harbor housing subdivision that was created in 1943 by the Mainland Company (City of Texas City, 1995). Named for Earl L. Noble, the Texas City mayor from 1926 to 1932, the park acquired a Shay steam locomotive and caboose, on loan from the Galveston Railroad Museum. The museum agreed to loan these in exchange for having another of their steam engines repaired by a Texas City company, Dunn Heat Exchangers. The Texas Kiwanis Club constructed a replica of a train depot on the site, and a fountain was built in Mexico and donated by the League of United Latin American Citizens, or LULAC. All these were dedicated on September 16, 1995 (Simsen, 1995).

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Shadows on the Wall
Looking for sidelighted subjects, I spied this shadow pattern on the wall. It reminded me of an old song- "Chasing shadows on the wall
Chasing shadows as they dance on the floor
Chasing dreams that were forever young
Now I'm on my own
Chasing shadows on the wall
Shadows on the wall"
Moody Blues

A slow night at work, so I'm shooting different subjects just for fun.
These are Teflon coated studs on a mirror.

Saturday Photo Ramble

 On a photo ramble with a friend Saturday, we saw plenty even though the weather wasn't ideal. Old barns, a lonely caboose, and some Brown Pelicans at a bait camp.
