Home Again

For the past three weeks, my dear Mr. Gentry has been working in the state of Utah. I am so thankful that God brought him safely home to me! From the moment he got home on Friday night, we have been going non-stop this weekend: dinner with friends, garage sale with friends, a big NAP, and church all day today, along with some not-so-fun chores. Let us all pause for a moment of silence for the mound of laundry that he brought home with him.

The fun thing about his trip to Utah is that I was able to hop on the Company Plane and fly out to Salt Lake City and spend about 7 days with him. And some of our friends came too. It really broke up the time we spent apart, and it was a place I had never visited before--a fabulous place I'd never visited before. I loved it and would love to go back. So I guess my next billion posts will be about all the fun I had in SLC.

I hope you had a great weekend filled with rest and fall fun!

Party Time, Excellent.

Last night I experienced a Fort Worth subculture that I had no idea existed.

My little bro plays bass in a band out of Denton called This Old House. They are really great and talented, and the next time you read here that they are playing around Cowtown, it would make me so happy if you'd check them out. Anyway, last night they were invited to play at Mambo's Cantina downtown. It was not so random since they are making the rounds in venues around the state.

What was random is that upon arriving, we discovered that on Wednesday nights, Mambo's hosts a webcast by a DFW DJ named John Rody who apparently was popular on The Zoo back in the 70s and 80s. It's more of a variety show webcast, I guess, with Rody chatting up the crowd, shaming some into singing karaoke (others are willing participants), taking phone calls from around the state, and featuring a local musical guest. Honestly, it was somewhat reminiscent of Wayne's World.

I don't think I've laughed so much in a long time. There is definitely a lot of audience participation, and clearly many of the folks there are Wednesday night (and karaoke) regulars. While it's PG-13, it's definitely an interesting way to hear some DFW artists that you might otherwise never experience.

Botanical Gardens

A couple of weekends ago, I took a little time out at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. At some point I plan on reading the manual on my DSLR, but for now I just shoot on auto with no flash.

This had me humming "The Yellow Rose of Texas" all afternoon.

Joke about the football Team all you want,
but Aggies know their horticulture. :)

Pink of perfection.

Is this not inviting for a Saturday stroll?

It's Official.

I am an official, library card carrying citizen of Fort Worth.

I might have gotten a little overexcited. I apologize if you, fellow citizen, were also wanting to check out the entire Pemberley Chronicles series. I promise I will have them back on time. (Husband will make sure of it, for he does not enjoy a good late fee.)

I was disappointed in the lack of an actual card catalog with drawers and everything. What is with these newfangled computer things?

Michael: Did you see this? It was on YouTube.

This clip makes me want to laugh, cry, and break it down all at the same time. Be glad that you're not in the room with me because I'm not gonna lie--it's not pretty. Is this not the best thing you've seen on TV in a long time?

I personally love how Michael Scott came down the aisle three times.

On the Road

This trunk honked hullabaloo, caneck, caneck at me this morning. Almost as good as waking up to the Aggie band {every single morning} as they practiced at the end of my freshman dorm.

The Aggies are We.

We weren't the only ones who braved the rain and terrible
tackling to watch the Aggies play ball this weekend.

The Aggie faithful were out in full force.

Obviously one of the better moments of the game.

Definitely snapped before kickoff.

Apart from the game, the actual weekend was great! Mikalah and Jarrod were in, so we kicked off the weekend with dinner at Joe T. Garcia's. We joined them at Cowboy Stadium along with the Clemens, the Cooks, Deans, and McElroys.

Good company.

At Least Aggies Always Win Halftime.

{The Fightin' Texas Aggie Band @ Cowboys Stadium Oct. 3, 2009}

I'm no fair weather fan, but Saturday night was really bad.
