Sep 7, 2010 - Choose Fort Worth

From the minute I hit Fort Worth there was a ton of things to do--- so -- if you come to the Dallas/Fort Worth area - choose Fort Worth. I began my day at the Amon Carter Museum. What a wonderful collection of Remingtons, Russells, and Hudson River School artists. I took photos ( allowed) of some of my favorite paintings so I can look at them whenever I want. What a plus! The next museum in the Cultural District was the Kimball Art Museum. This was the last building Louis Kahn built . The vaulted ceiling lets in tons of natural light -...

Jun 15, 2010 - The Stockyards

Day 5 Tim & Swan's Ranch, Fort Worth, TX Today Tim, Swan, Patricia, Joe & I went to the Stockyards in Fort Worth. Patricia, Joe and I had never been there before. What a nice area it is…all those old building, restaurants, museums & attractions. So much history….. We stopped at the visitor center for a short film on the history of the area and to pick up some info. We walked along the street and looked at & in some of the building… They had the Longhorn Trail Drive along the street. We were disappointed in the low number of longhorns…maybe...

Jun 14, 2010 - Gabbing & Chopping

Day 4 Fort Worth, Texas It’s another scorcher! It was around 103 F here. We are all so glad to be staying in the house (including Sheena & Queeny). I don’t know what I was thinking coming to Texas in June :-/ It’s just that we had planned to come in April and things didn’t work out. I really wanted to come to see Patricia….so ….we came. Patricia, Joe & I cooked and chopped for a good part of the day. My sister, Helen had given us a lot of rhubarb when we were in Oklahoma and our freezer & refrigerator are really packed right now. I told...

Jun 13, 2010 - Ft. Worth Ranch

Day 3 Patricia’s in Fort Worth, TX We left Colbert, OK before 9:00 am, it was already getting really hot. We weren’t camped far from the Red River, the border between Texas & Oklahoma in this area. We traveled south on hwy 75 to Sheridan and crossed from Sheridan, TX going west to Hwy 35W in Denton, TX. Those silly directions we had gotten from Google had us all messed up. They told us the road we were on in Denton would change names in .4 mi….the name never did change. Then there were directions to make a U-turn on a city street….well that...

Apr 13, 2010 - Hondo, Fort Worth, Livingston, Texas

We left Hondo, Texas after enjoying Easter dinner in the park. The ladies wore their Easter bonnets and paraded around the room....those show offs. Ham was served and it was excellent. Guess they felt sorry for us because of the damaged slide, because we were offered some of the leftovers for sandwiches to add to our salad while traveling. We were wondering where our next meal was going to come from, yell right! Our freezer in the R.V. is only a back up, there are so many wonderful restaurants, all we have to do is find them. We are getting...

Hither N Yon 2010

Mar 27, 2010 - Get set...

We may have been confined close to home the last couple of days while the movers packed and loaded a truck container's worth of our possessions, but we were far from isolated. Neighbors stopped by to bid final farewells, bringing fast food for lunch, sausage kolaches for breakfast, last-minute gifts, laughter, a few tears and lots and lots of joy - pure, humble, unfettered joy. We are leaving behind many great things here in Fort Worth, but this neighborhood, these neighbors are the blessing whose worth we still don't fully know or...

Mar 26, 2010 - On your mark...

I'm typing from bed where I've been tossing and turning for a couple of hours now, still though having doubled the amount of sleep I got the night before. At one point during the night, I woke up confused as to where i was - even though I'm in the same bed and the same room we always sleep in - and then had a brief moment where I thought packing and preparing to move was all just a dream. But it wasn't. Boxes tower at the foot of our beds, in the living room, in the shed out back. The movers will be back this morning to load everything into...

Mar 18, 2010 - Fort Worth Stockyards

The Fort Worth Stockyards was and is still the main livestock trading area for Texas and the surrounding states. The area is made up of heritage buildings, restaurants and various museums. We arrived around 10:00 AM, once again hoping to beat the spring break crowds. We did run into some crowds but not nearly what we had experienced earlier on our trip. We took in the cattle drive of the longhorns through the streets that takes place twice daily at 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM. To experience the real thing you would have had to multiply the herd by...

Mar 14, 2010 - Ripley's Believe It or Not

We had a fun time at Ripley's! Our favorite part was the mirror maze. If you've never done something like that, you're missing out! We all 'bumped noses' more than once with a mirror. Mitchell and I got 'lost' from the other four. They were waiting for us outside. Finally Neal sent Matthew and Dayton back in to get us. They found us, but then we had to find our way back out with them. The wax museum was a lot of fun, too. We met some pretty interesting characters. Makenna didn't like the scary wax figures very much. I will say they were a...

Texas Spring Break

Dec 17, 2009 - Texas

Texas to Florida: November 25 – December 7 As much as we loved Arizona, and with Las Cruces New Mexico forecasting snow, we knew it was time to move on into Texas. Desert was replaced by oil wells, followed by ranching country and the knowledge of a scheduled rodeo in Fort Worth. We were greeted with true Texan hospitality as we drove into Fort Worth. The street was lined with people. “How did they know we were coming?” we asked. (They were really there to see the cowboys drive a herd of longhorn cattle down the main street.) The afternoon...

Nov 10, 2009 - Fort Worth Stockyards District

When one attempts to traverse this great country during the month of November, one must pass through snow or through Texas. Needless to say, we chose Texas. Since our Southwest Bluebirds group has some members from Fort Worth, we got in touch with Rosie and Rick and they suggested Rustic Creek RV Ranch in Burleson as a nice place to stay. It's right off the Interstate, 35W, south of Fort Worth proper. It's always fun to be with Rick and Rosie, but it's better in Texas! Fort Worth is definitely worth a visit. We took advantage of a perfect...

Nov 7, 2009 - Fort Worth, TX (Day 2) - Stockyards & Carter Museum

(Ron Writing) This morning we toured the Stockyards National Historic District in Fort Worth. The 125-acre stockyards complex was once the largest livestock marketing center in the southwest. We looked around some of the old stockyards buildings that now house restaurants, gift shops, and other tourist attractions. Several original bars, hotels, and the livestock exchange building still stand. Twice a day wranglers on horseback guide the Fort Worth herd of longhorns down Exchange Street. It was interesting to see these big steers up...
