Memorable Times

There is time daily

To all have fun together.

Create memories.

Being a musician and a lover of music it always gave me a desire to tour Graceland.  Elvis transformed music as we know it today. Elvis paved the way for rock n roll.  Elvis is the King Of Rock N Roll!

Perhaps more stars will create museums such as this, because Graceland is truly amazing. For more information on Graceland visit this link http://www.elvis.com/graceland

Here are some photos I took while touring through Elvis’s Graceland. I hope they inspire you to make a trip.

In San Antonio, Texas. there is a place that is so Japanese that you might think you are in Japan. It is Sunken Gardens Japanese Tea Garden located in Brackenridge Park. This park is also home to the San Antonio Zoo.

The park is quiet and lush with exotic vegetation and plants. There is a pavilion and beautiful waterfall within the gardens too. For more information check out http://www.saparksfoundation.org/japaneseteagarden.html

Here are some photos I took while touring the garden. I hope they inspire you to visit this wonderfully, beautiful place, and best yet, it is free.

Pepperoni – A Haiku

Posted: June 26, 2013 in Poetry

It’s so amazing how something simple as pepperoni can become a haiku. I was making an Italian sandwich when this came to mind.

Pepperoni

Circular tasty

On sandwiches or pizza

Bright red in color

Graveyard Hours

Stars in the night sky.

Moon shining bright overhead.

Calm before rush hour.

Schlitterbahn New Braunfels has been the #1 water park in America for several years do to its proximity to the Comal River, innovating ride technology, free parking, and the ability to carry your own food in and have a picnic. You have water coasters, tube shoots, water slides, surfing with Boogie Bahn,  and several water play areas for children. In the old section of the park the water is non-chlorinated Comal River water flowing through the rides at 72 degrees. A nice chill that keeps one cool in Texas summer heat and definitely original. I have never seen it done at any water parks in America. I am proud to say I have been chilling out at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels since the opening in 1979.  New Braunfels sister city is Braunfels, Germany, and after a visit to Schlitterbahn you will understand why because German heritage is everywhere. For more information check out their site at http://www.schlitterbahn.com/nb/

Here are a few photos I took at the park last week. I hope they inspire you to find your way their and enjoy a day of fun.
