My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "T" — Some places I've be,en starting with "T"
- States (I've been to all fifty states)
Tennessee -- My brother-in-law and his wife live in Jackson, Tennessee, but we don't get to visit them very often.
Texas -- I live in Texas, 50 miles north of the Houston P.O. Where the hills begin.
- United States: (larger to smaller)
|Tampa, Florida -- |
Tacoma, Washington --
Tallahassee, Florida --
Topeka, Kansas --
Tekamah, Nebraska, with only 1736 population (Google Search link)
Towcester, U.K, with a population of 9,252 (Wikipedia Link)
We couldn't decide which was the best, their wonderful hospitality, all of the sights they showed us, or all of the good British foods they made or led us to.
We averaged 40 plus miles per gallon w/ a Ford Focus 1.4 liter SUV diesel.[The one we rented in Milan, Italy, on April 2, 2006. This is it, parked beside the 2006 Winter Olympic Stadium in Turin, Italy. Click on pictures to enlarge them.]
During the first day we worked on the float and the second day was Friday, July 4, for our parade.

Four dozen plus two golf balls given us by our cousin, John, of Tekamah. John walks a lot and when his walk is at the cemetery beside the golf course, he finds many 'out of bound' balls.
Thank you, John. And Cliff, you might identify one of these (golf rule number one, identify your ball).
At any rate is 'finders keeper' rule for our family and John graciously gave us these balls that he had found.
Now, Mrs. Jim and I will play 'one for me, one for you' with the NIKE and Callaway balls. Then Mrs. Jim will take what she wants and I can have those she doesn't want.
We worked hard to make this poster (aren't my home drawn stars beautiful!) and similar mate, then left both of them in Cliff's truck. We aren't sure whether or not he will save it for us or give them to a cousin. We would liked to have had them to show Adi. Maybe she has looked at the blog. I hope so. Adi died in 2013 (Adi retiring)
