it's always nice to get a new look at the city you live in. especially when you are tired of the heat, the extreme lack of nature when compared to your last residence, and the general scene. on saturday we went to visit the corinthian sailing club at white rock lake (usually our favorite place for walking the dogs) for their open house and wooden boat show. free hot dogs and free sailboat rides, a nice break from the norm around here. i know nothing about sailing, but really wish i had a reason (or the means) to be out on a sailboat most weekends.
