In September 2006 we ventured on a road trip around the Texas Hill Country in search of the best swimming holes in Texas as featured in Texas Highways magazine. Our first visit was to Tonkawa Falls in Crawford Texas, home of Dubya and the Missus. Unfortunately, the falls and pool were dried up and quite […]

Water tower leads to lighted breasts

Water towers. I like them. I wish more towns would put some effort into making them interesting and artsy. Alas, it’s just a water tower , why bother, right? I suppose that’s how most people think. Yet, every once in a while you’ll see one with a smidge of character. Thus was the case in […]

5 hours in London

Last year on our journey to South Africa, we had a stop-over in London. Hindsight being 20/20 and all that, it was probably not the greatest idea to cavort after a twelve hour flight. If we ever have the good fortune to travel such a distance again, we will not cavort. We will get a […]

Sunday in Houston

As promised, a business balloon this Sunday. Not just any balloon, a patriotic bunny. Looks like that could have been the flag flying over Fort McHenry. Can you see the rockets red glare? The bombs bursting in air? Holidays and business balloons go together. Like peas and carrots. This bunny was sitting atop the 59 […]
