May 17, 2013 - Irving

Irving, near the floral clock of Las Colinas is a beautifully landscaped city of magnificent homes and businesses within this immaculate area encompassing many acres of aesthetically pleasing acres and people friendly too. Enjoyed the short stop. "The Mustangs" in Williams Plaza is a beautiful tribute to the horse. This life size bronze sculpture commemorates the descendants of horses brought to America by the Spanish from Mexico. "Mestenas", the horse of history was not native. The mustangs roamed the northern plains and across Texas...

Nov 2, 2011 - College Station To Irving

I took a three hour detour to have lunch with my Mom's friend Aurelia. For many years, Mom babysit for Aurelia's daughter, Camilla . They never lost touch - always calling and sending each other cards. Even though Camilla is grown and married, she cherishes her wonderful memories of Mom whom she thinks of as her second grandma. She said Mom was the only caregiver who would get on the floor and play with her. I remember Mom doing that with my boys! I have heard so much about this family over the years and since Aurelia recently moved from...

Oct 26, 2008 - Cowboys game with Kent and Ed

WEnt to Dallas to meet Kent Hulsey and Ed Elmore for the Dallas Cowboys football game. This is our annual pilgrimage to Dallas to watch a Dallas Cowboys game. This is the last year that the Cowboys will be playing in Texas Stadium. Turned out to be a good game--low scoring but the Cowboys defense did a great job to hold back Tampa Bay. Brad Johnson was QB for the injured Toni Romo. He wasn't that great, but he made a key throw for a TD that made the difference.

Chronicles of Bregy

Feb 23, 2008 - Friday

Sorry about no update yesterday, but nothing happened except we traveled from San Antonio to Dallas. The temp when we left SAT was 74, and when we got to Dallas, it was 42. Friday, the comvention got under way, and it started off with a tour of Fort Worth fire station #2. Nice tour, and interesting station. It was built way back just before WWII, and even has a bomb shelter in the basement. We left there, and went to the DFW airport fire station for a tour, and lunch. Still cold as the dickens. Fortunately, there was an inside place to...

Jan 19, 2001 - 1997 May 21 – Irving

Today I went to Las Colinas, a planned community in Irving. First, I went to Williams Square to see '”The Mustangs of Las Colinas”. The nine larger-than-life mustangs galloping across a granite stream are done in bronze by African wildlife sculptor Robert Glen. Williams Square faces the Mandalay Canal, where a replica of “La Niña”, one of Christopher Columbus’ ships, was anchored. The Mandalay Canal is an old world European waterway, lined with trees and cobblestone walkways. I enjoyed these immensely.
