Though New Orleans stole our hearts, and is still in our minds, Fort Worth is our home base these days and gave us a good Saturday in the middle of a very hot summer. We were able to visit (for the 4 millionth time) the new (and always free) American Vanguards exhibit at the Amon Carter Museum and it was fantastic… really, really fantastic. We also reconnected with Doc’s Records & Vintage at their new far west location, which has a few racks of vintage clothing and more wonderful records that one could sift through in one visit.
As the day heated up, we had our first summer snow cone, or New Orleans shaved ice from Mr. John’s Shaved Ice on Camp Bowie Blvd – we tried Hurricane and Clear Cherry. It was quite the deal and the best sno cones we have had, well ever, and the owners are super friendly. And to continue with the summer theme, we grabbed some In-N-Out Burger with Emory and continued to work on sewing projects, with many things having been shortened, hemmed and several sleeves have been done.
Summer is here but quickly coming to an end, now if the Texas weather could just get that memo!
