MiniRally in Dallas
« on: October 19, 2007, 03:07:57 PM »
We were privileged to meet some additional members of the forum this week, as Gary and Nancy stopped by on their way home from their summer trip. We spent the day at the Texas State Fair, looking at crafts, automobiles, high rise stacks of playing cards and other interesting things.  Although they didn't stay long enough to get in a day of fishing, I did get Gary into the boat for a ride. (Tom Jones and Jim Dick please note.)

Although we had met many on the forum at the Moab rally this year, we haven't been to an east coast rally yet, so we were happy that Gary and Nancy came through Dallas on their way home. They are every nice folks. The Brincks also met this year's Moab Rally attendees Jim and Ruby Laney and James and Sue Moeller.

This qualifies as a rally because I have pictures!
Robert

Looks like y'all are enjoying the minnie rally.  But like Tom mentioned where are the fish.  Tom, maybe there aren't any fish to be had there. ;D ;D

Robert's refrigerator and freezer are always full of catfish and bass that he catches. IIRC he's even posted some photos of the big ones here. I didn't see any fishing poles in the boat in that photo though.

Sorry to hear we weren't included up here in Richardson.  Might have been too busy to do much however.

We still hope to get together when we get there next month Ron.  Maybe we can have a bigger minie rally than last year.

OK Tom and Ron, since the boat was still uncovered I went out for about a half hour,  Came back with these Hybrids (sand bass/stripers).  Not big, but they are tasty.  Couldn't get Gary to stay this afternoon to go fishing.

Ron from Big D, sorry I didn't think to give you a call.  Next time.

Ron M,

You missed the freebie "seniors day" at the TX state fair.

Wish we could have stayed longer and done some fishing, but we had some further stops in mind before heading to the SE Rally next weekend. It was so windy during our visit that boating/fishing was out of the question, so naturally it turned calm and sunny on the day we planned to leave. Managed a short boat ride before we left, though.

The Texas State Fair was fun. The girls bought rocks. Yes, rocks.  Not pet rocks, but colorful native stone of various types made into oil lamps by an Indian craftsman. Neat looking and quite ingenious besides.

Thanks, Robert & Mary, for your splendid hospitality.
