A Brief Reprieve From The Dust Bowl This Weekend In Midland Odessa
A Brief Reprieve From The Dust Bowl This Weekend In Midland Odessa
Supposed to be nice and warm temperature-wise, touching the low 100s (which is fine because many area pools are opening this weekend for the season here). But the big news is the forecast for the wind. Only supposed to get to 9 miles per hour on Saturday, and up to 15 miles per hour on Sunday. THAT means you can light the grill, and set all the condiments outside on the patio table with the paper plates too-and they won't all blow into the neighbor's yard!!! Wind does pick up slightly starting again on Monday-but only into the low 20s as far as wind speeds for the start of the week. Be safe, and enjoy or warm wind-free weekend!
An Odd Site On 191 In Midland Heading In From Odessa
An Odd Site On 191 In Midland Heading In From Odessa
I've driven past this 100 times or more since moving here but never paid that close attention till today when it caught my eye from across the other side of 191 heading toward Loop 250 in Midland. And it struck me as odd, because even though I know who the man on the billboard is because I'm 52-I wondered if anyone here age 35 or under would? I mean, growing up in the '70s and 80's, everyone knew who John Wayne was. "The Duke" starred in so many films, one of which is my favorite western thanks to my Dad passing on his love for it--Rio Bravo. I've even been to the movie set in Tucson Arizona to see where they filmed. But like everything else in life, as time passes and generations move forward-what and who was famous to one, will be replaced by the next in line.
