There's nothing fun anywhere in fly-over country. It isn't worth taking the time to search the Internet.

You can go see the "grassy knoll" where Kennedy was shot.

You've picked a great time to visit..... How'd you like 108 today?
There's a ton to do here...... sadly almost all outdoor activities are unbearable from now until early September.

A cousin of mine came to Dallas this weekend. My family met hers at the Galleria Mall in North Dallas.

I'm not much of a shopper, but the women outnumbered the men 2-1, so they had their fun!

I didn't mind too much...too darned hot to do anything else!

By tomorrow noon I should be in Las Vegas, for a couple of days I think.

If you are coming back then, perhaps I can join you to drive in a caravan back home, which should be of interest if you would like to take a turn behind the wheel of my now modified AMG SEC which *WILL* reach 152 mph without drama, (<-------- which may or may not be true, depending on who asked!!!).

I need to detour home through Sacramento, anyhow, to drop off a large box of Mercedes parts BOXED FOR MAILING, Fed Ex to Australia, IN MY CAR NOW, to be shipped to a Benzworld Moderator from there, who got them from yards down here in Los Angeles (Sylmar area) that we visited (and where my speaking only Spanish in these places, helped me greatly!)
