I've experienced "complete joy" in fleeting moments in my life and it is extremely difficult to put into words.

Of one such experience I wrote, "I was so happy I could have pulled out any drawer in the morgue and laughed [however grisly the sight.]" It is not that I lacked sensitivity for the immediate circumstances, but that I had sense of rightness or completeness in the grandest scope of things. My laughter would be the celebration of the soul's joining with the father and the end of its suffering here.

My Hats & Caps

  • Messina Hof Cap
    This is a collection of photos of some of my hats and caps through the years. A CAP is a brimless head covering with or without a visor. Examples: a baseball cap has a visor to protect eyes from the sun; a ski cap is a knitted head covering without a visor. A HAT is a head covering, usually with a crown and a brim. Examples: a fedora has a crown with a crease and a brim; a top hat has a flat top crown and a brim. A visor only extends around the front of the hat while a brim completely encircles the hat.

Our Historic Galveston Home

  • The Smith-Rowley House in Galveston
    Noted Galveston leader R. Waverly Smith commissioned architect George Stowe to design and build this house in 1896. The house survived The Great Storm of 1900, the 1915 Hurricane, Hurricane Carla, and, more recently, Hurricane Ike in 2008. We lived here and loved this place for ten years. If houses can love people, she has certainly loved us! After moving away from Galveston, we sold her in November 2012. Enjoy this album of some photos we've taken to share with people like you.

Photos: Ike Survivors in Our Galveston Garden

  • Galveston Garden_1254
    In the early morning hours of September 13, 2008, Hurricane Ike struck Galveston Island. The storm surge from the back side of the island inundated a large portion of the island. Twenty-four inches of salt water covered our lawn and gardens. This album contains photographs depicting the resiliency of the trees, shrubs, and other plants in our garden eight months after the storm. Ron Pogue Rogationtide 2009
