Wasting time in one of the cottages of  “*^&%*%” in Lubbock, I took photos of whatever was around while waiting for my co-worker.   I forgot I even had this photograph and all it was was point and shoot shot with plans to delete once I realized how sloppy it was.  However it is the memories this photo stimulates when I look at it. 

I can’t say “last year” in terms of 2007 now.  But in May of 2007 I was working with a new co worker when everything changed.  The work we did was great and the circumstances were pleasant.  In fact, I consider that particular assignment one of my favorites and I miss it dearly as well as those I worked with there.   We all now watch a management company crumble.  I’ve considered writing about Sunwest and have several times started entries only to delete and begin another topic.  Fortunately, I have some very fond memories of my 5 years there as difficult as it was to accept a number of the wacky decisions made.  

When I see this photo, I think of the visits I made to the Panhandle to both Amarillo and Lubbock, the challenges and the successes, the many employees, and sometimes just the quiet time spent on the property watching the seniors stroll through the courtyard reminiscing.

    I think the photo is lovely! Especially on a cold, kind of dreary day, like today.

    I spent many happy years in Lubbock when I attended “Harvard on the Plains”…aka Texas Tech. Many students have a hard time adjusting to Lubbock, but I enjoyed my 4 years, 2 months, 16 days, 5 hours, and 21 minutes there. 😉

    Thanks for sharing this,

    Harvard On The Plains…I have not heard that term before. My husband attended Waylan Baptist in Plainview. The worst time of year in Lubbock is ginning season.
