Jetting off to the Tx State Fair
Backstory: When I was in the 4th grade, I lived in Longview TX. Star Wars was the biggest thing that ever happened to me. I recall a weekend where the local radio station was broadcasting from the county fair. They said R2-D2 was there! I loved that little bot. I HAD to go. I begged, pleaded and fought with my parents to go to the fair. I was devastated when I was told no. I sat at home pouting all day. My father tried to placate me with a promise to take me to the Texas State Fair. He told me about Big Tex, a giant talking Texan. Not quite as great as R2-D2, but he assured me the State Fair was much better than the county fair.
A short time later, we moved to Louisiana. We never did go to the Texas State Fair
NOW, I can say I've been. I saw that big talking Texan. He's certainly larger than R2-D2...
My favorite part of the trip was the transport. We took a private jet up/back. That was certainly cool. I enjoyed my first ride on the DART light rail, and the Trolley that runs up McKinney ave.
after a couple hours of rides that spin, twist, go upside down.... and Fletcher's Corny Dog and other fried foods, the boys wanted to go back to the condo. The draw of the PS4 was greater than their love of fried foods.
