I'm glad you were able to see it this year.
He has been at the fair since before I was born.

We have a similar 'legend'; Mr. Jing-A-Ling.....on Halle's 7th floor he'll be looking for you to turn the key. Every year at Christmastime Mr. Jing-A-Ling would be a public character persona. Our children met him once while Christmas shopping in Cleveland - or at least a younger version of the original. Mr. Jing-A-Ling has passed away, yesterday, I believe. Halle's (a large department store) is no longer in business and with his passing, so ends an era. .....
They have promised he will be back next year. Some people think it won't be the same, but DH and I think differently.

Thanks Maria! There's definitely more to come. I'm trying to get another couple of installments ready for Sunday & Monday. I can think of at least 4 or 5 more on the cruise alone, but we'll see how it goes.

They really think it was an electrical short in the mechanism that worked his mouth and arms, since the smoke and fire came out at his throat. It did not take long for it to spread to all the clothes and the rest is history!

But the mayor of Dallas and the state fair officials have all said Big Tex will be back next year bigger and better.

Don't know if this news will reach any of your states, but this is a huge news item here, especially for us since we are in the metroplex area of Dallas.

Luckily I was able to see him when DH took me to the fair last week. This is the last weekend of this years fair. As I said a sad day for Texas.
They had the picture in our paper. That is a shame that that happened. Glad they will bring him back though!

Caught the tail end of the game today. . . . really unusual for me, I am really good at missing it all, but Kati was very happy at the outcome.

I know it made quite a bit of the national news. It will be interesting to see how close to the original he will be.

It was bittersweet as Tammy has been a lifelong Cowboys fan, but she was pulling hard for the Panthers

Me too! But don't tell DH I said that!

I had a wonderful trip to the World last week & as promised I did make it over to our happy place for a visit. All pics you've seen before I'm sure but it's not a bad way to start a Monday.

I have a question for any groupie out there. We are arriving on December 1, 2012 and have a late dinner at Be Our Guest. They will be taping the Christmas Parade then, I presume. What time do they stop taping for the day? And if there is no rain, will they have to tape on Sunday?

I think they usually stop by 5 as it gets dark soon after, and they typically like to make it seem live, middle of the day, to make it like same part of the day when it is shown on TV.

And they do shoot next day if needed because of rain.
