Rockin' the Fort Worth Downtown…I Love It Here


I’ve spent the latter part of this week at the Harts DUG Permian Basin conference in downtown Fort Worth.

Do y’all know how much I love Fort Worth?

I’ve had dinner with some major company hosts a speaker dinner, which was a lot of fun.  An intimate venue, at Del Frisco’s, and I was blessed to be invited.

The next morning, the real conference commenced.  I saw tons of customers, and our lunchtime speaker was retired General Colin Powell.  He gave an interesting talk, and proved he knows virtually nothing about the energy business.   He was treated superbly by our industry representation at that conference, and I think there were 2200+ people there.  I am proud of our industry, and the people in it.  They laid down their political beliefs for one hour, and honored a man who had served our country, and did it well.

I’m proud of anyone who fights alongside, and leads our troops, in defending this country and the people who call America home.  

I met so many people, saw so many friends, and even got to hang out a little with Elder Son and his Cowdog/Hunting Dog (if that sounds funny, it is - it’s a trick Elder son has taught the pup) tonight.  And that, people, made my year.

On Easter Sunday, our adopted daughter and her mommy brought our baby goddaughter Ada to see us.  We had so much fun loving on them and hanging out with a ton of our friends for Easter.

Sweet Goddaughter!
ThatManILove and I have been busy campers this week.

Such is Mi Vida Loca, eh?

It’s never boring around here!

Hope y’all are all doing well.


  1. That is some cute cowpup and what a beautiful child Ada is..I bet you had fun! :)

  2. We had our ship's reunion in FW last Sept and spend a night at a pub crawl at the stock yards. It was awesome. I have destination of being the first and only member to be kicked out of a bar. It seems you can't go from one bar to the next with a beer in your hand and, though I got in the place, they made me leave until I finished the beer. Pouring it out or throwing it away was not an option by that moment in time. I like FW, too. I also got to enjoy the earthquake that Saturday night, too. You Texans sure know how to show people a good time.

  3. Well, you certainly had an interesting time of it. It all sounds so wonderful, and had all the right components — including a dog and a child.

    But (Bear wonders) are you going to leave Midland and emigrate to Fort Worth?

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
