Now in the 73rd Day of Lockdown; Walking in Lake Jackson.

It is time to show a few scenes from walks around town leading up to 73 days in lockdown.

Only a few houses down, this family was celebrating an Aggie graduation. I enjoy seeing the yard signs and they offer a nice way to celebrate during The Year of the Plague. They will always remember 2020. And Lacie will always remember that they did this for her.

This year’s class will miss out on some of the usual joys of their college graduation. Their families are doing their best to make up for it. Congratulations, Lacie.

Just around the corner on That Way, one family has planted flowers around their mailbox to add a touch of beauty to the neighborhood. I was a couple of days late. By this time they were a little droopy but still bright in color and attitude.

They were much prettier two days earlier. I am sorry I didn’t have my camera along then.

Walking north on Any Way Street a few days later, I spotted this flag flying in the front yard of a Trump supporter. I have seen only this flag and one other Trump/Pence yard sign. While it is comforting that I haven’t seen more, I know very well that there are more DJT fans quietly living out their hermitage days here in LJ and loving the leadership of Trump and his gang. They don’t fly flags. They just vote. So do I.

A Lake Jackson neighbor on Any Way shows his/her colors for her/his Hero. I know many people in town. I do not know the person living here. I admire the willingness to confess publicly while many others will quietly go in and vote for DJT after denying their allegiance publicly.

Three pickup trucks in the driveway tells you something.

Moving on up Any Way, I turn right onto That Way in the direction of Shy Pond. There is a kid fishing with his family and they allow me take picture of him. I only promised not to post it on Facebook. I really don’t think they would have minded if I did. He looked like he was having fun. Getting some bites, too.

Youngster fishing in Shy Pond. It looks like he may have a bite. There really are fish in the pond as well as many turtles.

And it’s always nice to run into an Astros fan. He knows it’s wrong to bang on garbage cans to tell the hitter what to expect. It also scares the fish. So don’t do that.

Mom and sis were feeding the geese and ducks while he and dad fished. The birds are always hungry and biting. Watch out for the geese. They are aggressive.

I volunteer as a photographer for our local community theater. I have opinions about politics and believe it should be every American's duty to become informed and participate in the discussion of issues. I began this blog to be able to stay in touch in ways I used to on Facebook. I deleted that account recently and hope to be able to share photographs and information relating to cultural and political events in our community. I am retired after a career in social work and post-secondary‚Äč education.
