Deep in the Heart of Texas

One of my dad’s sisters did some research on our family history many years ago and discovered that we are ancestors of one of the original founders of the state of Texas.   That means I qualified for membership in the prestigious Daughters of the Republic of Texas.   I’m not much of a joiner, but I do like Texas.   I’ve visited Texas many times in my life and I wouldn’t mind visiting there again.   San Antonio was beautiful and Dallas was quite interesting.   I have friends that live near Dallas so if I were interested in visiting there I would definitely take a look online for Dallas Texas hotels.   I remember years and years ago visiting the Galleria which was the largest and fanciest shopping mall I had ever seen in my life up to that time.   I think if I was going to Dallas these days I probably want to visit there again.   What else should I do in Dallas?

Around the Neighborhood

It was nice this morning so I decided to go for a walk in the neighborhood.   It’s interesting what you see decorating people’s homes right now.   Halloween decorating is the thing this month.   You won’t find any decorations for Halloween at my house so I enjoyed seeing what others have done.   Norm and I are still debating about passing out candy this year.   We haven’t done it for a couple of years because we don’t get that many trick-or-treaters.   There seems to be a big community event at one of the nearby parks, so why bother?

Getaway Dreaming

Governor Sarah Palin has certainly made quite an impression so much so that the Democrats and their cohorts in the mainstream media are doing what they can to dig up dirt on her.   I heard the other day that dozens of lawyers and reporters and campaign workers were sent to Alaska to “investigate.”   I wonder if any of these people looked at this as an opportunity to get in on the cruises one can take in Alaska?   Certainly I don’t have the funds to afford such trip, but if I ever did take a cruise it would be an Alaskan cruise.   I would imagine the view of the glaciers and mountains is breathtaking.

Internet Dreaming

A week or so ago I was flipping channels one evening and came across the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” of which I have seen several times.   As there was nothing else of interest I decided to watch it again.   Such a lovely film, although there are aspects of the movie that I don’t care for, overall it’s enjoyable.   Tuscany looks like a beautiful place!   Oh I would love to go there someday.   Booking airline tickets as well as searching through Tuscany villa rentals online would be pretty easy.   Now if I could only find someone to pay for a trip…
