(she reads the site ;) )</p><p><strong>So what else is new?</strong><br />(well the site is not updated much that&#39;s for damn sure!)</p><p>For my 2 or so days of vacation at dallas I managed to a decent amount..</p><p>- I let a weird traveler named &quot;todd&quot; drive me almost all the way to dallas.. owe and he paid too.. $80 for the privilege..

In other family news.. angie may join me once or twice on the road if she makes up her mind for the 16th venue.. </p><p>&nbsp;<strong>What have I learned?</strong><br />- I&#39;ve learned don&#39;t put gas in a used gan can soaking with paint brushes.. <br />- I&#39;ve learned there is fajita&#39;s out there are okay or decent..<br />- I&#39;ve learned that flower parks are kind of boring.. but I like the kid&rsquo;s storybook elements and the kids themselves..<br />- I&#39;ve learned that if you die as president.. they&#39;ll make you into a true tourist attraction.. *good for the economy*<br />- I&#39;ve learned that &quot;timing belt&#39;s&quot; don&#39;t last forever<br />- I&#39;ve learned that I create everywhere.. 3 or more broken lights, 2 free items.. cooler and $6 from napa which turned into gear oil.. 1 free tow</p><p><strong>Editors Note:</strong> <em>So the pictures should be uploaded first then tell the story.. fucknuts..
