Once Upon a Time TV Show

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show. Once Upon a Time

“Once Upon A Time is, at its core, a story about hope.

“For us, that’s what a fairytale is. It’s that ability to think your life will get better. It’s why you buy a lottery ticket—because if you win you get to tell your boss that you’re quitting and you get to move to Paris or wherever and be who you always wanted to be. And that’s Cinderella, right? One day she’s sweeping up and the next she’s going to the ball. Adam and I just wanted to write about something hopeful that for one hour a week allows one to put everything aside and have that feeling that your dreams just may come true.”
– Edward Kitsis, Co-Creator/Executive Producer

Fall Trip to Raleigh

Weekend in Raleigh, NC.

What a great city to visit. Lots of wonderful history and a plethora ideas for new stories.

I was hoping for a little cooler weather since it’s always HOT, HOT, HOT in Dallas. No such luck this time. I guess I’ll just have to come visit again.



Here’s a couple of photos of our tour to see the statue of the US Presidents born in North Carolina: James Polk, Andrew Jackson, and Andrew Johnson.
