3.   City Hall, Capitol or Civic Building
   
Sugar Land is a small city outside of Houston.  We went to hear a friend's band.






















4.   Airplane

5.   A Sunset



7.   A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny


 8.  A Tower
Flag at Half Staff for Firemen who died in a Hotel Fire in Houston.
Firemen use the stair tower to exercise for staying fit.


 9.  Something that is clearly out of Place.


10.  An outside bench
Its very peaceful to sit at the family bench at Brookeside Cemetery.  


13. A Fence


15.  A Fire Truck or Police Car

A view from the driver window as you can see it is a tight squeeze for an officer.

A view from the back seat.  Bullet proof glass between front and back seat.  Window on passenger side can be rolled down so that the arrested suspect can get cool air during the hot Houston weather.  


The back seat of Police Car is made of hard plastic and not very comfortable.  

14.   Stained Glass/Mosaic Object

This is the first large window I made by myself.  It is in my son's bedroom. The beveled Lone Star came in a kit, the diamond and square bevels were bought.  All the other glass was hand cut
