The swing

Now then this is the last of the videos that were made at Zero Gravity. This is actually the first one we rode and it was kind of tame compared to the others. There was one other ride that was literally a slingshot, but
it is still very large.
     For those of you that like to mess with video cameras and then want to change the format of the video,
go to,
and they make it pretty easy.
    Traffic in Dallas was miserable. The Texas Longhorns were playing Oklahoma University on the day that we went to the State Fair, and it took an hour to go one mile on the freeway. Sharon got the Dallas map out and we went through town and made pretty good time that way.
     We saw the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, in Fort Worth and it is one of only two places where they print money.  Sharon wanted a page of uncut bills and we wound up with not a complete page which would have 32 bills on it, but a quarter page. Her page has eight one dollar bills and oddly enough, the government makes a profit on the money they sell that way. That was a good tour though, but they make you leave almost everything that is normally in the pocket, outside, like Mace, knives, guns and so forth.
       I missed the free sample portion of the tour.

How about another one

Well the videos seem to work so I will stick another one in here but this is a one time only experience for me.

One more time, bad language.

The videos are large and maybe that is why I am having trouble getting them in here. This one should not be too big though, as it is slightly bigger than 7 mb. We will see.
    While we were in Dallas we went to Heritage Village. It is a Civil War era mueseum of buildings that you would expect to find at that time, and the people dress in period clothing and tell you stuff. The thing is it is right in the middle of Dallas with Skyscrapers all around.
     Ok, Sharon's video made it. Should I try another? Nah they all look too big so I may have to try to change the format to a smaller kind. Once again, I don't know what the people had to say when Sharon dropped, but it is not something for me to control. The two people waiting on the tower still are a couple of young men who were new to the army and about to ship out. They were looking for some fun before they left.

bad language

Well I stuck the video in that last blog but there were some people still in the tower waiting thier turn and they chose to use a little bad language so please excuse some unknown persons lack of  proper comunications.

Cool stuff in Dallas

Well you know it has been quite a spell since I tried to update this blog but I have been busy.
The city of Booker sent me to school in Amarillo and I bought a unicycle while I was there. I am learning to ride the thing, (again). I figured it would be like riding a bicycle, once learned not forgotten but it isn't so. Of course it has been 20 years since I rode one so that might have something to do with it.
     How about a video. If I can make this work, it is me doing nothing but net. We will try.
If this works it is from a tower the height of a ten story building. Whole lot of fun.
Maybe it did. I will publish this one and go from there.
Later, Y'all.
