Elizabeth H. Roome's conversations

These mighty haymakers stand 60 feet high and weigh 30 tons, the largest bronze sculpture in the world. One would like to imagine that they are strong, American hands, but evangelist Oral Roberts outsourced their casting to Juarez, Mexico in 1980.

The hands were originally called "The Healing Hands" and they stood in front of Oral's "City of Faith," a medical center devoted to faith healing. But the City of Faith wound up on the short end of a series of lawsuits and declared bankruptcy in 1989. The hands were then moved to the entrance drive of the university. Also on the property is the Oral Roberts Prayer Tower.

The City of Faith is now known as CityPlex Towers, and it houses corporate tenants. Its central tower stands 640 feet tall, which reportedly is the same height as the Jesus who appeared to Oral in a dream and told him to build it.

THIS IS NOT THE HERMITAGE. This is the Two Rivers Mansion. Great photographs though.

I think this is the same tree (knot) that's on my photos from 1974 and '75?

Ft. Pulaski was built just prior to the Civil War. Robert E. Lee was the supervising construction engineer shortly after his graduation from West Point.

There's Aunty June! What Sweet lady
