Denise and I spent a couple of hours at the Dallas Karting Complex today.
The temp was in the mid-90s at the time but the real heat came from the workout. We did two 5-lap sessions and I was beat. Those little carts can pull some Gs in the corners.
It took a while to trust the carts but about halfway though the second session I started to believe. 🙂 We’ve got 6 more sessions to go but we may wait for a cool front later on.
I have decided my contribution to posterity will be bacon fried rice:
Like pork friend rice but with a smokier richness.
Here is a picture from Denise’s and my trip to the Zoo last year. I may have maneuvered her into the snake-a-torium without her noticing.
As it turns out those little Schleich animal figurines you find at the feedstores:
are designed and built in Schwaebisch Gmuend where I was stationed in the army. The pieces are later hand-painted in China.
Wednesday night in Point, Tx.
Weather was chilly-perfect. I’d gathered up fallen limbs that had been knocked down by the past few storms and finally lit them off. Stared at the fire and thought, and didn’t think. Depending.

I guess I’m an odd bird — I don’t get bored and I don’t get lonely. I can go days without talking to anyone (dogs don’t count) and not really notice. Admittedly there are shortcomings to this approach but I find them preferable to noise and chaos.
I follow a blog called Refashionista. I’m interested in it because the author buys clothes from thrift shops and remakes them. I don’t particularly care about the stuff she makes but I am interested in re-use/repurposing and her sewing techniques. I know this comes as a surprise to those who know me as a fashion expert and clotheshorse. 😛
Anyhow, a recent blog post was about fidget quilts for dementia patients; it was something I’d have never thought of but seems like a great idea once you hear of it.
Got to spend some time with Epic Girlfriend Denise. Burned two small brushpiles, dragging them onto the last remnants of that giant mulberry stump.
Visited with Dad and Joseph; they stopped by to Continue reading
