One of my favorite small towns ever (& the best in America) we host a first Friday art-tastic event each month. Pictured above is the shops participating on W Oak. If you stop by SCRAP they’ll have samples of Armadillo Ale works, Denton’s own micro brews. Get free sangria & nibble sized square delectables at Denton Square Donuts upstairs & peruse art while listening to live must at Creative Art Studio. Walk the square, open late, for all Christmas goodies & cheer! Don’t forget to Shop Small this season!
All others might just want a pretty bird to look at, so here’s to being ready for the annual bird toast!
This last weekend I went a traveling (more details next week) & visited two towns not pronounced the way they are spelled. I was mocked for my pronunciation difficulties by my Dear family. Four places in Texas I know are said different than spelled.
Mexia or Mahayah?
Boerne or Bernie?
Buda or Boodah?
Gruene or Green?
All are pronounced the second way but spelled the first way. Where have you traveled that was a speaking nightmare?
I’ll end this with a joke. Two men are driving to South Texas. They start to argue about how to pronounce Mexia. One swore it was Mexia & the other swore it was Mahayah. They stopped for lunch at the local DQ for lunch. Exasperated, one of the men turns & looks at the waitress. He tells her to tell that fool how you pronounce the name of this place! She turns, looks, and lowers her head to his and says real slowly, “it’s called dare-ee queeen.”
I am out on a trip so here’s a song!
I believe everyone should travel light, and why not travel like an English butler picked your suitcase?
Heres how you travel British style:
…or travel sick?
It’s been a week of ick feelings, dreams of crashing waves & unanswered calls from nature. Some times I feel like this is the only way I travel anymore: in my dreams. But next week I will review Cowtown Winery & then the week aft I’ll discuss family reunion pros & cons.
Until then, stay traveling my friends.
I got to see something in theaters I normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to see; Singing In The Rain. Fantom presents older film special events. The worst part is their price. There is no discount or matinee price. But hey 60th anniversary showing: score!!
Go here for movies near you.
I’m still tapping in my head.
