I went out dancing wit my beautiful bride last night at Pearl's Dancehall & Saloon in the Fort Worth Stockyards.  I drank just enough to loosen up and get out on the dance floor.  After a few false starts, we were able to get around the dance floor without hurting ourselves or those around us.  I had a lot of fun and look forward to future trips.  I got to bed about midnight and a few hours later one of those famous Texas thunderstorms passed through.  Kids and pets got stirred up, so sleeping locations were rearranged.  I got up to get a drink of water when I found my nutball mut in the window, four foot off the ground.  She was pretty stirred up.  Tried to sleep, bot woken up by one of the cats.  Went to sleep, woke up at 5am, no reason.  Went back to sleep and got up at 6:45 to get out to Dallas for the Texas Lottery event releasing the new Star Trek scratch off.

I was there about four hours, got to see some great costumes, meet some lovely and interesting people and be counted in an attempt to break the Guinness record for most costumed Star Trek characters in a room.  We missed the record, 1064, by half.  May have had something to do with being on Easter weekend.

I got home, made lunch and went to work in the garden for a few hours.  I just finished dinner and I'm completely wiped out.  Need to find some energy to help dye eggs with the kiddos then I may call it an early night.
