THE WAY IT SHOULD BE
The prices of a hamburger and fries alone, in today's markets, is a tipping point. No wonder so many of our favorite places to eat are heading towards "remember when."
A GOOD READ FROM THE Z-MAN ON THE BURNING PLATFORM .
From The Feral Irishman. Telephone pole transformer/connections sounds like a muscle car starting. Cannot stop watching.
And this just in.
Will you comply?
A trip to Dallas last weekend to visit with family and eat homemade Mexican food. The art of street tacos at their best. Great conversations, story telling, me laughing so hard I had to put my head down to recover. I followed that my spilling a class of water over the table. But boy oh boy did I/we have a great time.
The wife drove and found us an alternate route to the brother-in-law's home via Royal Lane. Got us off the 635 ring road early, minimized the hectic traffic experience and "quieter" drive. She had time to tell me some of her growing up years in Dallas as we passed landmarks along the route.
New construction and building along 635 will never be done. Temporary exits are defined by a maze of cement barrier walls dumping traffic at a stop light. I think the growing city will continue forever. Industrial power transmission lines surrounded by construction cranes easily offer up opening titles and panoramas of the next dystopian movie.
Yet within minutes inside the 635 circle, quiet neighborhoods of new built homes nestled next to remaining 1960's one-level family homes built on sprawling, tree-covered lots, further define Dallas. High walls and fences in some areas are just that. Small malls pop up along the way. They are everyday lifelines for those neighborhoods.
The Dallas Metroplex population ( Dallas - Ft. Worth - Arlington) is just shy of 8 million people.
Appreciate the visit this week.
