I wasn’t sure what to think of the Opening Ceremonies. I wasn’t a big fan of watching the transformation going from one ere to another, seeing men in top hats do something like the Macarena, and even though McCartney played and J.K.

It’s kind of funny living in this area, because my journey took me from Lewisville, to Coppell, Irving, and then back again crossing two counties. It all sounds like a large area, but cities around here are pretty darn close.
My brother-in-law does this cool thing that for each birthday he rides his age. Maybe I’ll be in good enough shape to do that one day. Shortly, I’ll be turning 37.
