2023 in review: January-March


January took us to basketball games, Tyler, and Wichita Falls, and it took me into the last half of my fifth decade!

January 1: Home

January 4: Fort Worth

Dede and I cheered for the Horns vs. TCU.

January 14: Tyler

A visit to Tyler means shopping at Pea Picker Books. (We are so sad that it closed at the end of the year.) We also returned to Tyler's famous Stanley's Bar-B-Q.

January 21: Wichita Falls

We visited Wichita Falls over MLK Day weekend. It was cool to see the falls there and the "World's Littlest Skyscraper"!

January 31: Home

We were iced in, but Brett and Daisy made my 55th birthday great.


The month began with a deep freeze and ended with a sad goodbye.

February 1: Home

The winter weather gave our Trailblazer "teeth" and created a "snowscape" when we cleared ice off the Equinox.

February 3-5: Lubbock

The roads cleared in time for me to visit Katie on "The Day the Music Died." We visited the Buddy Holly Museum to commemorate the day.

February 11: Houston

This was the month we had to say goodbye to our wonderful Aunt Berniece.

February 25: Home

I fed my Bradymania by finally acquiring a Brady Bunch lunchbox (and ended up with TWO!).

MARCH 2023

March took us to McKinney, Paris, and arcades.

March 4: McKinney

While in McKinney for a comic con, we checked out the house from the 1970s movie Benji.

March 10: Arlington

Brett and I joined his work friends at Free Play Arcade for Mario (Mar10) Day. We dressed for the occasion, naturally.

March 15: Dallas

Brett took a day off during my spring break so we could have a fun day in Big D. After enjoying Fletcher's corny dogs, we checked out the Nasher Sculpture Garden. 

March 16-17: Paris

Later that week of spring break, we took a family trip to PARIS! 

That would be Paris, TEXAS.

We had fun checking out the downtown area, where Remember When is the coolest retro store on the square. We also made sure to see the Paris Eiffel Tower and the impressive veterans memorial next door. Just like the signs say, "Paris is always a good idea!"

March 18: Fort Worth

Back home in Fort Worth, we took another Downtown Walking Tour.

March 29: Home

Can you believe our Daisy Jean is 10?!
