The Fort Worth Stockyards: Where the West Begins For those craving a wild west experience in north Texas, the Fort Worth Stockyards is the place to go. This is where you can ride a mechanical bull, watch a gunfight reenactment, buy custom-made cowboy boots, hang out in a honkytonk, see the opry, witness a cattledrive,…

My ROW80 Check in If it were Thursday, I’d say that it must be Belgium, but since it’s Wednesday, all of us folks afflicted with writerly obsessions know that it is, in fact, time for a #ROW80 check-in! I got sick and missed my day job yesterday. As a result, my recollections of yesterday are…

Texas is full of historic graveyards and I love exploring them. I rarely visit modern cemeteries, unless there is someone famous buried there or a particularly unique headstone to check out. For the most part, newer graveyards lack the history, the beautiful old trees, and the finely crafted headstones and monuments of the older ones.…

Taking photos is a big part of my life, so it’s really hard to call one single photo “the best one.” Plus, I like different photos for different reasons. Some are great because they transport me back to a special memory, some are artsy, and some just make me laugh. I especially enjoy photos that…

Instagr.am is a free iPhone application that lets you easily post and share photos with other people right from your phone.

My week: an unexpected trip A death on my husband’s side of the family caused me to spend this past week in Florida. I never met the woman who passed away, and yet, by the time the funeral and other ceremonies were over, she no longer felt like a stranger to me. Spending time with…

My Aunt Kay is notorious for decapitating relatives – in photos, anyway. All Freudian implications aside, the woman simply cannot take a decent picture. Her compositions are awful (i.e. why is the cake the only thing in focus in all her birthday shots?) and when she does manage to get a clear image of someone’s…
