Rusted Time Just Like Clockwork

Rusted Time Just Like Clockwork

RUSTED TIME JUST LIKE CLOCKWORK

With much anticipation for a steamy awaited venture;

I snatched my flighty robotic sidekick, Moon Shadow,

as escort for an acceptance to a royal gala and affair.

I noticed my grunge-dated envelope revealed a faded time stamp.

Where had all the time gone?

What Year of the Lord is it upon my newly fated eve?

I am quite sure my clock still works.

Or had it stopped with a tattered tide?

My dresses within my wardrobe had rusted to a blended gold.

The celestial sphere radiated in an auspicious hue

blowing dust and powders amid my booted feet.

My motor car transposed to a shoddy heap.

Oh dear me,

I fear I seem to have rusted in some sundry state or prime.

But dismay not,

Just like clockwork,

I shall still be on time.

Remember The Alamo

Remember The Alamo by Bambi Chicque

Remember The Alamo by Bambi Chicque

Yes, I am back from an 8-week traveling real life adventure!

First, I want to thank my friends and followers for the emails, pm’s and inquiries

to my where-abouts!

I came home with around 2000 photos from my travels; some to be posted on my

personal photography website and my travel blog!

And….I missed you all, too!

☜  ❤  ☞

So, my first assignment was to prepare an article within the San Antonio realm.

As I put together photos I mentioned to my sister that it’s really difficult to take a picture of

The Alamo without having a lot of people on the grounds.

Quickly I did a SecondLife Destination Guide search to see if anyone had developed

this as a build and to my excitement I found The Alamo!

My nephew was with me while I jumped in to take screenies of this most accurate

and detailed sim that I have seen

(among hundreds more that have inspired true likeness to the “real”)

and he was in just as much awe as I was!

“Remember The Alamo!”

Who could not visit San Antonio without visiting The Alamo!

“Remember The Alamo”, a sort of San Antonio motto,

refers to the battle cry of the earlier Texan’s

striving endeavor for independence from Mexico.  General Santa Ana’s Mexican Army seized

The Alamo after an exhausting fight to death by our Texas heroes amid what was once a

Spanish Catholic mission, turned fort.  The name “Alamo” derives from Spanish cavalry members

who nicknamed the mission after their own village of Alamo de Parras; meaning “cottonwood”.

I bet some do not know that there were originally 6 organized groups who wanted

ownership of The Alamo during 1836 when Texas was in a state of revolutionary flux

where the former Mexican state had broken away.

The list:  Monarchists desired Texas to be subjugated to the Spanish Crown,

The Confederation of Anglos and Tejanos had their own ideas

for Texas to be a republic independent

(along with a rebel confederation which was led by Sam Houston), the fledgling nation of the

United States preferred Texas to tie with them, particular Federalists preferred Texas

as a Mexican government and  the sixth group, members of the Centralists wanted

Texas to be a part of Mexico but ruled by a national government.

On March 6, 1836 the Confederation of Anglos and Tejanos, dominant Hispanic landowners,

were indoors of The Alamo amid approximately 200 desperate men from all over

the U.S. and realized they were in need to face a helpless battle to defend their aspirations

for Texas with their lives; not realizing there was no aid on the way.

During two weeks of bloodshed engagement,

finally Santa Anna was fiercely knocking on their fort’s door.

By dawn of that historical day, March 6, 1836, the hostel Mexican soldiers took the Alamo.

The hidden Texian children, women and slaves (along with James Walker Fannin) were

executed by General Santa Ana’s order on March 26, 1836.  And according to historical records,

there was not a single rebel fighter left alive to tell the tale of this historic battle.

Some 600 Mexican troops perished in this battle;

which tells me our 189 or 200 heroic and brave men put up a great fight indeed.

History tells us of one lone nonmilitant slave, known only as John,

lived to tell the provisional rebel government details of the fort’s battle.

So the month which followed that historical conflict, the wailing cry of “Remember The Alamo”

became the rally inspiration to gather the rebels again and march onward towards their goal.

Finally at San Jacinto (now named Houston, Texas) the commander of the brigade and

newly formed rebel volunteers, Sam Houston, led us into victory during another month long

and exhausting fight for the freedom of Texas.

On April 21, 1836, Houston heralded 910 men to march the plains outside

of San Jacinto and shot cannons toward the surprised Mexican forces.

The 20-minute battle was short and fierce.  The Mexican soldiers had been caught off guard

and were completely vanquished by our battle cries echoing amid the smoke,

gunshots and whistles of cannons shooting by “Remember The Alamo!”.

As for myself, I cannot drive through or visit San Antonio without stopping to walk

the grounds of The Alamo.

Every time I visit the old mission I feel proud to belong to Texas as I read through

the historical plaque information and logs displayed about.

Today, the citizens of San Antonio (as so in Texas and the depths of The United States)

are made up of a multitude of nationalities.  There is a common sense of friendliness and

scores of politeness in sharing of history and culture

embedded into the people I chance upon while there.

I see pleasing smiles on everyone’s faces and have been graced with kindly conversations;

from those who were born in the area all the way to transplanted

folks whom all seem proud to call San Antonio their home.

In closing, I certainly “Remember The Alamo” in my own special way and I most certainly

urge anyone who contemplates a visit to San Antonio to be assured of a wonderful experience.

Take your camera!

And if you are in SecondLife ~ TAKE SCREENSHOTS!

Make sure to venture through the corridors, paths, gardens and grounds of THE ALAMO

and take the time to read through this quite authentic rendition of the mission!

Alamo Rose by Bambi Chicque

Alamo Rose by Bambi Chicque

The San Antonio Rose” is a signature song by Bob Wills

(who btw was born in my Mother’s home town of Turkey, Texas).

When I see a rose or think of a rose, two things come to mind.

One, the song “The San Antonio Rose” and second,

“The Yellow Rose Of Texas” which is a traditional folk song and

is my Mother’s favorite flower!

I selected a Spanish lace style pant set, put my hair up and picked some roses

to pose in front of The Alamo’s grand superstructure of this real historical site!

The photo effect is one I devised myself to give it a festive painted feel

and my choice in attire was to mix the new with the old

since The Alamo is so alive to me, personally, today!

I hope you enjoy!

"SL11B Ride The Pod" by Bambi Chicque

“SL11B Ride The Pod” by Bambi Chicque

As Owl and I were tweaking our “BamPu Legacies & The Photographers of SL” SL11B exhibit,

I had to set up the Pod Generator info that was sent to me!

As soon as the task was over, I hopped on the passing by POD and Owl joined me!

And away we went….with a breathtaking surprise…..

Here is how the POD works:

You can hop on the POD as you see it coming by or even at a distance.

My suggestion is to slide in at a starting point station so you can see and do it all!

The POD will travel on a designated route throughout the entire SL11B Celebration sims.

This gives you the chance to set back, relax and take it all in!

As you pass by an exhibit be sure to read the CHAT

as it will give you a description for that model!

One could jot down notes as to which exhibit they would like to return to

or just hop off and explore!

But here is the fun part………

Ride The Pod Bucket List LOGo

As the POD travels through the outer sections, it will change into a Hot Air Balloon and

fly you around and even a nice comfy Boat to glide you along the waters edge!

We were unable to complete our tour yesterday morning,

BUT IT’S ON MY BUCKET LIST #1 THING TO DO

when the celebration opens on June 22nd NOON SLT!

And I suppose you already noticed, two people can ride together!

Soooooo! Add this to your SL11B BUCKET LIST, TOO!

Keep up with all the news, details, highlights, event schedules and more!

I’ll be posting more information on our BamPu Legacies & The Photographers Of SL, soon!

To visit us, just click your VIRTUAL POD HERE!

Can’t wait to see you all there!
