    Ok you lazy #westside folk -

    I finally found a day cool enough to ride over and grab it. As an FYI - no Baptist’s were seen out and about on this day.

    New tag soon.

    In Cajun country probably.

    At least east of the trinity for sure

    Time for a little #eastside action -

    IMG_1383.JPG

    No Cajuns were seen in this area so you west side folk should be safe.

    East. But not too far east. At least to my way a thinkin’.

    Stay cool. Summers almost over.

    They have very small teeth. Very sharp, but very small. Small wounds are hard to disinfect. Bleach.

    It's hard to disremember being bitten by a Cajun.

    OK - This place was donated to the city of Dallas in 1937 by a wealthy doctor. There has been an almost endless series of squabbles over it since.

    He also bought the first ambulance that the city had. There is a high school named after him as well as a couple of streets. Since he gave millions to the parks department, his name is scattered around on some other facilities as well. Before he died, he scribbled a 27 word will on a prescription pad.

    There are probably tens of thousands of families that have pictures in a photo album or hanging on a wall of their kids sitting in a field of bluebonnets within 200 yards of that tractor. It is a rite of spring around here.

    I think the guys that used to play a lot called that being “Bruced” or something like that.

    A tag lingers for a while and then two people or more try and grab it within hours (or minutes) of each other. ;-)
