I moved to north Texas, in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex (Arlington) over 3 years ago after I had a stroke. I came from a small town in southern New Mexico of 15,000 people. The whole county had 30,000. Now I'm over here where Arlington alo... Read more
Memories

Late last night I was watching one of those entertainment news shows on tv on Fox. I can't think of the name of it but it's like Extra on NBC. I had heard the news already but they had an interview with David Cassidy about his dementia. This ... Read more

This is late, because I saw these animals at Christmas. I went to my son's house, 3 1/2 hours away usually. Took longer this time because of fog all the way. He has a new girlfriend, Heather, and she has 3 kids. He has 2 and he has custody of... Read more

This has been an up and down past few days for me. The bad and the good of the last 3 years have gone through my head. I'm going to start with the negative, and then end with the blessings I've experienced because I want to end on a positive n... Read more

I don't know why my stepdad (who I always just called dad) has been on my mind a lot lately. The anniversary of his birthday isn't until late April and the anniversary of his passing was in November. It was also back in 1988 that he passed fr... Read more

I'm still working my way through exploring some of the parks and hiking trails around this area. Since Arlington alone has something like 77 parks this will take me a long time LOL. Some are bigger parks and some are small. Veteran's Park is ... Read more

Now for the good changes. My son told me when I got discharged they wanted me to go to their house to recover until I could eventually get my own place. They found an outpatient therapy center about 15 minutes from their house that they got me... Read more

This is a walk I've done a lot of times, including this morning. But these pictures were taken last spring, when I was still deciding about moving to Arlington TX from my son's house in North Richland Hills. Both are part of the whole Dallas-Fo... Read more

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      16 comments

I'm going to try doing this again. A few weeks ago I was going to do a blog about a different nature preserve but couldn't get pictures to upload and gave up. I've been exploring some of the different areas in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.... Read more

This blog has been going around in my head for a week or two. So why do I do what I do? I've thought about it. As many of you know, I was doing strength training, and cardio training to build myself up for the past few years until last Hallow... Read more
