Weekend Wandering: Dallas Arboretum: Spring Blooms

One of my favorite things to do in Dallas is to visit the Dallas Arboretum while the Dallas Blooms are in bloom. There are thousands of tulips and other flowers. We went on a bit of a cloudy Sunday afternoon but it was perfect because the threat of rain kept many people away. This year

Weekend Wanderings: A Day in Fort Worth

Keltin and I spent Saturday in Fort Worth. Our first stop was the farmers market on a beautiful bright and windy day. I did get the eggs, produce, and sourdough without being blown away but it was a near thing. With all that in the cooler we went to the massage we had scheduled because

Weekend Wanderings: Hop & Sting Brewing Company

Keltin and I finally made it out to Grapevine’s craft brewery. With as much as I enjoy a good beer I’m kind of embarrassed about how long it took me to visit this local brewery. Located near the historic Main Street with in door seating and a dog friendly patio this is a great spot

Lunar Eclipse – Blood Wolf Moon

Last night made me wish that I had a telescope as I watched the eclipse from my back patio. Bear exploring the yard under the fading silver-white light. It also made me think and write a bit. This poem is rough but I captures my feelings from last night. The wind in the trees And

Weekend Wanderings: International Motorcycle Show

Happy Tuesday everyone! The title of this blog post may surprise you. I’m not really a motorcycle person. This is in part because I didn’t grow up knowing anyone that rode and because my own lack of coordination has made me wary of anything on two wheels. Seriously, I managed to wreck a 4-wheeler and
