Tell Me Something Good #3

[With all the bad going on in the world – the economy, politicians exposing themselves, the war on terror, Oprah going off the air, NFL season in jeopardy, cats and dogs sleeping together – it’s about time we celebrated the good things in life. Here at Defying Procrastination, Tuesdays have now become “Tell Me Something Good” Tuesdays. Every Tuesday I will post something good that has happened to me or someone else in my life and I want you to do the same. Leave me a comment and Tell Me Something good that is going on in your world!]

Rising Star Area Veterans Memorial Park

As I mentioned last week, my lady and I took a day trip to Cross Plains, TX to visit the Robert E. Howard Museum. We had a wonderful time, in spite of the blazing Texas heat. Along the way, we stopped and visited several Historical sites, including the Rising Star Area Veterans Memorial Park, Pioneer Cemetery, and the Greenleaf Cemetery, where Robert Howard was buried.

Our last stop found us visiting the J's Art & Soul art gallery right there in lil' ol' Cross Plains, TX. The gallery was converted from an old Methodist Church building. It was amazing. Alisha found a photograph of a Texas storm that she had to have. Look for future posts, complete with pictures of our trip.

Yesterday I got the opportunity to celebrate Independence Day with my extended family, the Williamsons. It had been far too long since I had the chance to see and spend some quality time with them.  Wesley fired up the grill and didn’t disappoint, with a buffet of hamburgers, brats, and extra lean Axis deer steaks from a deer he bagged.

We talked about the usual subjects; UFO’s, George R. R. Martin’s TV series “The Game of Thrones,” the evolution of man, business opportunities online, the fine art of making guitars, and Independence Day heroes - like Daniel Morgan. The children entertained us with piano and guitar performances, reminding me that I need to get back to playing my neglected guitar.

The only thing that could have made it better was the presence of my girls, my little step-munchkins, and my love, all of whom were either working or had prior engagements.
