My understanding of King Arthur lore comes from watching Excalibur on cable in the 80’s, First Knight on video in the 90’s, and reading Mark Twain’s A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court. No, I haven’t seen Disney’s canonic work. When I saw the…

Sometime last fall I saw the first trailer for a new movie from Legendary and Universal Studios coming out called “The Great Wall”. The premise was simple: the Chinese build the Great Wall to defend against some kind of attacking Kaijū (怪獣) attacking from…

It occurred to me that I have a lot of old t-shirts. Most are not fit to wear anymore. I thought I would create a photographic archive of these old t-shirts. This will be a long project. I plan to just add the pictures to this posting and display them in…

Sad to see this tree fall to the storms. It will be missed. #wxtx

I was very sad to see this tree had not survived this weeks storms. It was not able to stand up to the 70 mph straight line winds. I drive by this tree in south Fort Worth sometimes twice a day. I loved to see it standing solitary out in the field. At…
