century 21 hardeeteam realty: Dallas Area Train Show ** Jan 19 & 20, 2013** Come Have Some Fun! - 01/20/13 12:00 AM
Dallas Area Train Show -- Jan 19 & 20, 2013

A lot of the train displays are very elaborate, such as this circus layout.  Even the rides worked, like the parachute ride in the background.

Here is a train ride for the family. 

Another detailed model train layout.

Looking from the stage you can see the convention hall is filled with exhibits and train displays.

Here is a close up of the Daylight Express -- one of my favorite trains.  It is on the "bucket list".

Another awesome display.  The model railroaders really take alot … (1 comments)

century 21 hardeeteam realty: Sunflowers in Houston -- By Your Houston Real Estate Professional - 01/16/13 06:16 AM
Sunflowers in Houston -- By Your Houston Real Estate Professional

I was showing houses last week near the Sam Houston Race Track and noticed these fabulous tall sunflowers.

There were sunflowers in different life stages.  

This one with the black head looks really interesting.  The black is a good contrast to the vibrant green.

Here a sunflower is just about to unfurl its petals.  You can kind of see the inside of the flower around the petals.

Somehow, a zinnia got mixed in with the sunflowers.  It sure is a great burnt orange color.

Ballunar Festival -- NASA Johnson Space Center -- Sept 28th, 2012 

The 2012 Ballunar Festival was held at NASA Johnson Space Center over the weekend.  These pictures are from Friday night 9/28/12.

This Balloon Glow started at 8pm on Friday night, and it is a good thing I went on Friday, because the weather was stormy on Saturday and they shut the festival down early.

Here is where the announcer called for an "all burn".  All the balloons fired their hot air to illuminate the balloons.

Here is a different perspective for the "all burn".  Overall there … (0 comments)

century 21 hardeeteam realty: Extreme Fire Danger -- Scenes From The Aftermath Of The Last Wildfire in Magnolia, Texas - 11/14/11 06:35 AM

This is in Remington Forest where the fences melted from the heat of the fire.

This house was totally destroyed.  It looks like the fire pit, a car hood and a clay pot survived.  I can't tell if that is a refrigerator near the front or maybe some sort of rectangular metal box.  Everything else is just rubble and bricks.

This house used to be for sale by my real estate company, but the damage was severe enough for the owner to have the tarp put over the house and the windows boarded up. 

This house in Remington … (1 comments)

2011 Fall Festival at Lone Star College -- University Park

I think the tricycles were part of a racing game, but I didn't try it.

People were dressed in costume, like this jester.

We even had a few witches stop by.

This Dracula was at the top of a large pile of balloons.

This bad dog escaped from his confinement to attend the festival.  I wonder if they gave him a hot dog.

One of the games was this "whirly gig" my technical name for this contraption that spins you every which away.

We are so behind on rain, we relish every drop of rain we get.  Our grass and trees are dying and there is still an extreme wildfire danger, so we want all the rain we can get over the next 36 hours.  Maybe we will get to see some nice electrical storms as well.  Sometimes the lightning is just beautiful.

 Fond Memories of Smoky Mountains National Park -- August 2011
 
What breath taking views!  I must commend the park on having lots of great turn outs for picture taking.

This quilt was hanging up at a Smoky Mountain National Park visitors center over the fireplace. 

Here is another visitors center on Cades Cove Loop.  Make sure to take the time to do this driving loop, the rustic buildings are well worth the time.

I loved the tunnels, being from Houston, we don't have mountains, so tunnels are a treat.

A Quick Tour Of Lake Livingston By Your Houston Real Estate Professional.  After My Showing on Saturday I Went To Lake Livingston.  I was only 3.5 miles from the exit for the park, so I thought I would go take some pictures.

I'm glad I went over there.  It was nice to see water, after coming from Houston, Tomball and Magnolia where it is so dry that there have been wild fires in Magnolia.

Here is a nice picnic spot to watch the people out on the lake.

This is one of the boat ramps for public use.

The closing on Sun Fisher Court in Magnolia Texas was supposed to take place on or before this Friday.  But now with all the wild fires happening, we don't even know if the house is still standing.  If the house did escape the fire, the lender is calling for a new inspection to determine if there was any damage caused by the fire.

Mandatory Evacuation of Magnolia, Texas Residents.  As I am writing this article, emergency vehicles are racing down State Highway 249 on the way to Magnolia to assist in the fight against the fires which are spreading.  The last fires that were here about a month ago did not even evoke this sort of frenzy, but I could see the smoke earlier today/tonight that signalled to me that the fire was very close and the smoke was very dense.
Here are some pictures I took.

This was about 10 miles from Magnolia.

Fire Trucks and A Lovely Remembrance of 9/11

I was at Chick-fil-A the other day and spotted these great fire trucks there.  I happened to notice the beautiful eagle and flag painting on the truck with the "We remember" banner underneath.  It was very moving.

Here is the side view of the whole truck.  I almost missed the banner and flag, until I looked closer.

That day there was also Engine 25 at Chick-fil-A.  Their paint design is a little different from the Engine 21 truck.
