“Overwriting is a date only with yourself.”

…don’t you just hate them?

There is always so much I want to do. And only 48 hours to do them all.

We visited with out of town friends and showed them the Fort Worth ropes. Took them downtown to the Sundance Square where we toured the area pointing out the Bass Hall, the two-story Barnes & Nobles (which GW had to drag me out of there) and, since there were some in the group that had never been to Texas before, stopped in a few of the shops that specialized in Texas souvenirs. Which they got a big kick out of. Or maybe they were making fun of, I really couldn’t tell.

Of course, all this walking worked up a thirst so we stopped into the Flying Saucer for a beverage. It took us awhile to decide what we wanted as they carry 230498 kinds of beer. At least it appeared they do. I meant to snag a menu to carry home, but forgot. It named all the different beers and categorized them with an explanation of what they were and what was in them. Great resource just in case you wanted to become a beer connoisseur.

I stuck with my White Zin, but the waitress heard me say I have always wanted to try a Guiness, so she was kind enough to bring me a sample. It wasn’t bad at all and I was pleasantly surprised. Now I can check that off my ‘Things to Do Before I Die’ list.

The biggest excitement for the college girls in the group was while we were standing outside a well known hotel in the middle of downtown. They were looking up at the building and some guy walked up to the window with the drapes open wearing nothing but…well… nothing!

Welcome to Texas, girls!

The rest of the night was spent at the Stockyards, eating Riscky’s Ribs and making the required Billy Bob’s visit.

Sunday I was able to visit with the grandtwins. And they are just wonderful. So funny. So smart. So beautiful! I didn’t have time to bake any Nana cookies for them and they were so disappointed.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been getting some writing done. The only thing I am discovering is that it keeps me from doing other things I need to do and want to do.

Oh, well…priorities first.

The guy was wearing fresh air and I just have to wonder, did he prove “things” are bigger in Texas?
