Dec 19, 2005 - Ft Worth, Tx

I finally arived in Arlington, Tx, a suburb of Ft.Worth, after a detour to Tyler Tx for a while. The reason for the detour is unimportant, so will skip any comments. I ended up in the same park as Larry, infact, I was in the space next door. This was planned to be an uneventful, do nothing, stop to spend time with a friend, and a good time it was. I got to see the next three trucks he was working on, what happy customers he will have. While there, I went to the Volvo dealer and bought a replacement air valve for the jake brake system that...

Oct 10, 2005 - Marble Falls to Euless

We motored around Marble Falls today, stopping at Ken's Catfish and Barbecue for lunch. Catfish being one of our favorite foods, we find it hard to pass up one of these joints. It was quite good, and our hankering was fully satisfied. This was a nice little burg and quite picturesque, especially along the high cliffs of the Colorado River. We drove along a narrow residential lane on the south bank of the river and admired the river view of some of the houses built precariously close to the rocky edge. We saw a realtor's yard sign in front...

Getting to Flagstaff we decided to check out Sams club...see if that Sam's club has gas...it didn't..I saw this unique van in the parking...

Aug 7, 2005 - Homecoming

My flight leaves this morning at around 9:30am and I get home around 6pm. I'm not sure exactly how much flying that is, but I think it's alot! I'm so ready to be home. I miss TV and the radio and my car, and AIR CONDITIONING! I miss friends and family, too, of course. I miss Daisy and Holly and Lindy (although I don't get much lovin' back from Lindy, since she's a turtle). I miss my bed and my DVDs. But, I know that when I leave I'm going to miss so many things about Barthelona too. They have the best produce of anywhere I ever been. The...

May 26, 2005 - Conroe to Euless

By now, we were thinking that we were getting our system down pretty good in regard to preparing Homer for arrivals and departures. Sandy is becoming more confident that there will not be a water/sewage plumbing disaster. She is very picky about restroom facilities, and she had been very skeptical about the suitability of the plumbing of these small RVs. Since the system worked as advertised, with no odors or leaking wastewater, she can concentrate better on, well, helping me. Whenever we are going to undertake a launch, I concentrate on...

Homer and the Hornet

May 13, 2005 - The Beginning - Euless to Beaumont, Texas

This is a Friday, the launch date of our new Jayco fifth wheel on an actual trip! I needed to travel from Dallas to Palm Coast, Florida, to attend a two-day class on one of the FAA's arcane data-collection programs, and I thought, "Why not take Homer and let the government pay for part of the expense? (Homer, by the way, is the name of the new trailer. It should be noted here that we have always had a penchant for naming things in our household. The green Dodge pickup we bought to pull Homer is named "The Hornet." Why? I don't know, I guess...

Apr 10, 2005 - Crossing the Desert into Texas

As mentioned in our Grand Canyon entry it was cold, so just before leaving for our next journey which was to be north to Denver Colorado and ultimately up into Yellowstone National Park we sat down with a national newspaper and checked out the weather where we planned to go. Just as well will did! The forcast was for blizzards and freezing temperatures, so we said "bugga that" lets go to Texas! It turns out that the weather was bad - really bad. Denver got shut down for 3 days, people sleeping in airports with all planes grounded, people...

Jun 10, 2004 - The road is long... from Brenden

06/10/04 The road is long. We are about 162 miles East of El Paso traveling at approximately 75 miles per hour. Emily is at the helm and doing a fine job steering our magnificent chariot. The wind pounds the side of my face, the music is turned up nearly all the way but I can only hear tiny bits of it, the sun beats down on my fingers as I attempt to write the first entry into our electronic travel journal before the car adapter that is plugged into the cigarette lighter melts... again. After two weeks of finishing end-of-the-semester...

May 26, 2004 - Back to Texas???? Are we going the wrong way....

Well, after another Continental Breakfast at the Travelodge Hotel, we left for Ft. Worth to see the Plevak's, the Laughlins and Ms Cates. We traveled over 200 miles through some ok country but unfortunately did not see anything of interest worthy of a picture. We got spoiled by Sedona and the Canyon. Just when we were about to give up on pictures for the journey, we saw a statute of Cary Martin in his younger days rounding up one of his prize steers. We have definitely been lucky on catching the major attractions on our trip. We also got...

Jan 20, 2001 - 1998 March 13 - Fort Worth Zoo

Today I went to the Fort Worth Zoo in hopes of seeing three Siberian tiger cubs which I had seen on TV a few days ago. I was very disappointed that the cubs were being kept indoors today due to the damp weather. I had so hoped to take photographs of them but had to content myself with just a photo of the mother.

Jan 19, 2001 - 1997 May 19 (A.M.) - Fort Worth Botanic Garden

This morning cousin Dee Tillman and I visited the beautiful Fort Worth Botanic Garden. The pleasant weather made for a nice walk through the gardens. The Japanese garden was the inspiration of Scott Fikes, former Botanic Garden Director. In 1968 Kingsley Wu was commissioned to draw up plans for the garden and construction was begun in 1970. It was originally the site of an old gravel pit and few changes were made to the existing terrain. The main gate was designed by Albert Komatsu and Associates and was dedicated in 1976 to Mr. Fikes, who...
