Rob Reiner's mom, Estelle, delivered the most memorable line in my favorite movie, "When Harry Met Sally..." She passed away Saturday at 94. It's hard to believe that the movie is coming up on it's 20th anniversary!! I've watched it many times over the years and though the hair and clothes are a bit dated now (did we really look like that in '89?), the movie is timeless for me. "I'll have what she's having" - 5 words heard around the world!!!
We started out the morning driving to Ft. Worth and trying to avoid all of the traffic coming into town for the Dallas Cowboys game.
First stop - Ft. Worth Water Gardens. A very cool place! You can walk right down into the fountains. I was not daring enough to do this and I'm not sure my knees would have been forgiving if I had tried!
Rene decided to disrupt the falls! Where would she get such an idea?
Bonnie was next. I had to join into the civil disobedience!
We saw Prospector Pete in Downtown Ft. Worth.
We made it to the Stock Yards and realized a few thousand other people were also there for
Here are some pictures from the first day in Dallas. It wasn't really a full day - most of the day was spent packing and flying and trying to get Avis to give me a car that would actually seat four people.
The blue screen of death - at least it wasn't in the air traffic control tower.
Supper at Joe's Crab Shack. My crab cakes were so bad they took them off of the check. The scenery there was nice! Check out the visitor from Pensacola Beach! Bonnie suited up and attacked some crab legs. They got two thumbs up!
Tomorrow will be a full day of work. Friday is always the rough day - installing and upgrading computers and wondering if they will work when we're done! That's why I bring a jumbo container of Maalox tablets!!
We had discussed keeping things simple decoration-wise for the holidays this year. That sounded almost relieving but I started to feel that I shouldn't give up my place as the Clark Griswold of the neighborhood. So, on my last day of vacation, I put out a few decorations. It's a bit toned down from previous years, but for Christmas nothing will be held back.
