Gone - But Not Forever!
August 14, 2014
I love the signs along the highways that give the names of the towns that are just ahead, or around the bend. Many of them have the most interesting names, and I always wonder how the towns were dubbed with the names they carry today.
An internet search didn't reveal any information on the origin of this town's name. So I've no idea why it's named Golinda.
Nevertheless, Golinda is about 20 miles south of Waco, Texas on highway 77. There's no town buildings there that we could see - so unfortunately - it's a ghost town.
But because my name is Linda - I had to stop to take a quick shot.
And........this sign is a good way to say that "this Linda is going to be gone from Smugmug for about 2 - 3 weeks" So Golinda or GoneLinda - whatever. I'm off line for about 3 weeks.
I will miss you guys, but I so need this vacation away from work.
While we are on vacation, we'll be exploring Utah from east of Salt Lake City into the Unitas Mountains/Forests, then on to Zion National Park, then we'll spend several days in Page, AZ exploring the Antelope Canyons. After that, we'll head to Sedona and then we'll spend the last night in Phoenix and fly home from there the next day. We arrive home in Dallas about 7:30 on Saturday 8/23.
Then I leave on a 6:00 a.m. flight to Houston on Monday 8/25 for a 2 day offsite. Hopefully I'll have enough energy to post after that.
But, I will participate in Rick's Sunday logo challenge and get back in the swing of the Daily's the week of Labor Day.
For my FB friends, I'll post some iPhone shots from along the way, but when we get back & I have time to download and share the "good" camera photos - I will. Be blessed and not stressed my friends.
I'll miss you all, and I hope to get caught up when I'm back in the swing of things most likely the week of September 1st. Keep up the good work my friends!
