This nice postcard is from the late 1940s.  United used that logo from 1940 to 1954.  “Mainliners” were DC-3s.  With world-wide production, some 16,000 of these planes entered service somewhere…and some are probably still flying.

In 2013, Broad Street UMC was replacing their steeple.  This is the old steeple that they’d left out in the yard.  I added a scoop of ice cream, which tends to rather resemble a baseball, for some reason.

Mass o’ Vandas

These are on the side porch at a friend’s house.  Fine color for this orchid, an epiphyte whose name comes from the Sanskrit word for this flower, vanda.  Literal translation, I’m told, means “mistletoe” or, more generally, any parasitic plant.
