Back In Time Vintage Thingie Thursday

Some very interesting vintage thingies are found each Thursday at
It is a great place to take a brake and cool off if you are in Texas.

Back in the 1950's this was the marquee for Meadowbrook Drive-In.  It was a popular place to enjoy movies in the privacy of your car.  It would accommodate 500 to 700 cars. Its specialty was second run triple features.
Unfortunately, it closed in 1970.

In 1980, it became the marquee for Cowtown BMX bicycle track. That is why you see the bike mounted on top. It too has closed.

The screen is still visible even from I-30 East of Fort Worth. The marquee is only visible when riding on the bicycle trail that runs along where the screen is.  It is covered by trees and growth. My neighbor is an avid bicycle rider.  He knows and has been on most of the bicycle trails around here.  The photo of the marquee was made by him on one of his rides. All other photos are mine.

The area now is used by Waste Management for storage of dumpsters.

Outdoor Wednesday

Today let's all visit Susan and view the many Outdoor Wednesday sights.  Just click on over to

Believe it or not, we recently had a good rain.  I was checking my flowers when I spotted this sight.  At first glance, I thought it looked like eggs.   However, it turned out to be mushrooms.
You never know what you will see when enjoying the outdoors. 


Just Another Tuesday With MeMe

My idea of house work:  Sweep the room with a glance.

Age is a high price to pay for maturity.

Junk is something you have kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

Take a minute to relax and smell the roses.
 By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes.

Prayful Blue Monday

Smiling Sally
May each of the Blue Monday participates have a very blessed day.  Sally would like you drop in and say hello at

Eight year old's enjoying the rodeo life. This scene was taken behind chute just before riding their calves. They never fail to pray before any performance. One of these little guys is very special to me. I do not get to see him as much as I would like as they live too far away. They all come from good homes and I think that makes a big difference.
