Sour Cream Takes Me To Arlington To Walk Green With Indian Ghosts
I do not seem to be improving at this taking a selfie thing. It's hard to see the screen when out under the bright sun.
That baseball cap on top of me is a new one. Miss Puerto Rico got it for me on her recent trip to her home island. However, that baseball cap is not Puerto Rico themed. It says "Fort Lauderdale" on it.
Miss Puerto Rico bought the cap and other souvenir type trinkets during her 12 hour Spirit Airlines layover debacle in Fort Lauderdale on her return to D/FW.
We are at that time of the year when the Village Creek Natural Historical Area begins to look its best, with the return of green in various shades. Soon walking at this location will be seeming very jungle-like, including snakes. No monkeys, though, that I've ever seen.
Years ago Betty Jo Bouvier asked me, after seeing photos on my blog, if this really was Texas. Betty Jo said she thought Texas was all brown and desert-like.
The last time I flew north to Washington, July 20 of 2008, I left Texas with my location in the state looking green. I arrived in Washington with the state in drought mode, looking like what Betty Jo thought Texas looks like.
I remember the first time I drove to East Texas, just a couple months after my arrival in Texas. I found myself surprised by how much the East Texas Piney Woods Region looked like parts of Western Washington, with forests of evergreens growing on hills.
Anyway, I remembered to stop at ALDI after doing the communing with nature. I think Beef Stroganoff is my favorite Russian thing I concoct.....
