“Extending into the harbor from the grounds of Fort Preble on the Southern Maine Community College 
Campus in South Portland, visitors will find a conspicuous profile in the landscape at the end of a 950-foot breakwater.
It is Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse, a caisson-style lighthouse built in 1898 to warn mariners of a dangerous
ledge in Portland Harbor upon which it sits.” — Source: visitportland.com

Old Tucson Studios — Photo-Artistry by kenne

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — It’s been just over a year since Old Tucson Studios closed its doors.
The famous western attraction shuttered because of the pandemic. Now, after a long and at times
secretive process, Pima County is getting ready to announce who will take over the lease.

“The proposal period now has closed and they are actively considering whatever proposals have come in,”
said filmmaker and Chair of the Arizona Film Expo, Daryl Mallett.

Mallet was also a member of the Pima County Old Tucson Task Force. They helped in the county’s
process of finding the right developer to take over the lease of Old Tucson. Although he doesn’t know
who County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry will recommend to the supervisors, he does get a sense
the decision will be announced soon. — Source: KGUN9.com

The Return

I’m coming back
for my wings.

O let me come back!

I want to die where
it’s dawn!

I want to die where
it’s yesterday!

I’m coming back
for my wings.

O let me get back!

I want  to die where
it’s origin.

I want to die 
out of sight
of the sea.

Flashback — Double Bayou Dance Hall   Leave a comment

Double Bayou Dance Hall (May 25, 2005) — Image by kenne

Opened in 1941
a blues dance hall
in a black community
in bayou country
not far from Houston.

Music lovers from
all over southeast Texas
came to dance 
drink beer, eat smoked brisket
and sweet potato pie.

Born in Double Bayou 
Texas bluesman Pete Mayes
provided the house band
at the “the place” before time
and hurricanes condemned it.

Still standing
surrounded by overgrown
weeds and Spanish moss-draped
trees fronted by a historical marker
by Eagle Ferry Road.

A Christmas Day matinee
became an annual event
where the House Rockers
rocked out the blues
for holiday merrymakers.
