JFK and Frozen Garlic

I spent the better part of last week in Dallas for meetings.  Friday, Dallas saw temperatures in the lower 70’s, so it didn’t take much to convince me to skip out of the afternoon meeting and take a field trip.
As many times as I’ve been to Dallas, I had never been to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.  Dealey Plaza is the home of the former Texas School Book Depository where John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.

The first shot was fired from about this angle.

Taking pictures was not allowed in the museum and I didn’t have my camera anyway, but I will say it is well worth an hour and a half of your time to take this amazing self guided audio tour.  History really comes to life in this historic building.
I was home one day when this showed up.

The garlic I planted in September is not adversely affected by the snow.  Garlic is a bulb and, like tulip bulbs (for example), they need the cold weather to grow. In fact, snow gathers nitrogen from the air and adds it to the soil.  Many call it a Poor Man’s Fertilizer.
I call it a Pain In The Butt.
So excuse me now as I travel to my happy place..
