Texas, 1/30/12

On the Road Again Monday Jan. 30. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our son, Gene. Best wishes for more decades of good health and happiness. Before getting on the road Phil dewinterized the RV. We can use our RV's plumbing now that we are out of subfreezing weather. As we traveled through OK we noticed the red soil and more horses in the fields. In Texas we saw horse estates. Also noticed the dormant fields greening up.

Football fans that we are...we toured the stadium where our Packers won Super Bowl XLV a year ago.

Dallas Cowboy Stadium.....the biggest stadium in every way we are told.

Do you recognize this guy? A greatly respected coach of the Cowboys!!!!

The workers who greeted us had stories to tell about the cold weather they had last year the week before the Super Bowl. They liked today's weather of 60 much better. We saw photos and they talked about the setup before that Super Bowl game.

There were 12 in our tour group. One couple was from Sun Prairie, Ellie's hometown. The jumbo TV is 160 feet wide. The top of the second tier of seats is at outside ground level. It is a very impressive stadium.

The Club section.

The ceiling lights are in a football design. The white x's represent the laces on a football.

Jerry Jones "man cave." (Not his suite.)

Jerry's phone in his man cave.

View from "Standing room only area."

This is the "Ford" sponsored standing room only area. New Fords are on display. Pool in the shape of a football.

Interesting artwork throughout the stadium.

More artwork.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders locker room.

In front of Tony Romo's locker. He's from WI and went to Eastern IL University, so we claim a little connection with him.

Defensive men's lockers.

Cowboy's star they go under before the players go on the field at the 50 yard line.

Hey, Phil going on the field.

We are on the STAR at the 50 yard line.

Phil jumping toward the goal posts.

Under the goal posts. Quite a tour, a very impressive stadium, but we still will take Lambeau Field over it!!!!!

Texas Rangers Stadium

We stopped to see Jay in Waxahachie, someone Phil used to work with.

We are camping at Waxahachie Creek Park on Bardwell Lake. We heard it was 53 degrees at home. Really unusual for the Midwest.

Location:Dallas and Waxahachie, Texas
