Yeah, I know it's crooked. I just liked the sign - interesting font from mid-20th century

Sigel's Liquor Store
Lemmon Avenue and Mockingbird

I think this is one of the best mid-century neon signs remaining in Dallas. I love the bubbles - they snap on and off.

I need to record the sound of neon buzzing and put on here sometime in .wav file. Coolness.

The former Ritz Theater at Harry Hines and Northwest Highway

For some reason, I can't open photo files, so this was photo roulette, tonight. This is probably not the best photo of this group, but it will have to do for now.

This wonderful old theater was a nightclub in the 80s, and now it's a bingo hall.

Agave Americana

These are Agave Americana, which I've heard referred to as "century plants." After decades of growth, they put up a flowering stalk only once, after which the original plant dies. However, suckers (off-shooting plantlings) may have developed radiating out from the original plant.

I think they are marvelous. So much texture. The flowering stalk gets to be about 15-20 feet high.

Tequila is made from the blue variety of this plant, which is in the lily and amaryllis family.
