Random Picture of the Week Pt. II

Here is the second set of random pictures, catching us up to the present.

January 30 - February 5th

A picture of our grapevines in our backyard in Albuquerque during our early spring snow in April 2005. The snow made the grapes scarce that summer, along with the apricots that usually grace the neighbor's tree. Even our pomegranate bush failed to produce this past fall, even though it bore tons of fruit the year before. We're not sure what will happen this year...we have had very little precipitation this winter.

February 6 - 12th

The courtyard of the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida. The museum was established by the same Ringling of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus. The museum contains many pieces of art collected by its founder and patron, as well as putting on special exhibitions and playing host to traveling exhibits.

February 13 - 19th

Here is Mike, standing in front of Big Balls of Cowtown. This picture was snapped by Megan in Fort Worth, we believe, when we visited there in the late 1990s. While both of us were never attracted to Dallas as a city to visit or live, Fort Worth seemed like an interesting place. Unfortunately, the downtown looked like a tornado went through it, because a tornado really did go through it, blasting windows from some of the high rise buildings there.

February 20 - 26th

The Davis-Hartmann wedding party. Kristen, the bride, was a volunteer in the program Mike ran in Milwaukee. Stefan was a member of the Pallottine order. They had a civil ceremony in Germany, where they live on a collective farm, and a religious ceremony in Geneva, NY where Megan and I delivered the homily for their wedding. Posted by Picasa
