Here’s an interesting DISH for you

DISH, Texas

I have been busy in Texas all this week so it is only appropriate I add a Texas comment on the blog.

Just about two years ago I was on business in Texas (except I drove here instead of flying). On my way back to Kentucky, I made it a point to drive to DISH, TX. This community, established in June 2000, was originally named Clark. In November 2005, the community accepted an offer to rename itself “DISH” as part of a commercial agreement with the satellite television company of the same name.

DISH Town Hall

The day I went through (April 17, 2010) was also NASCAR day at the Dallas Speedway, which is just a few miles away from DISH.  To my shear enjoyment, what should I behold flying over the town of DISH that nice morning?  Nothing other than the Direct TV Blimp!!  (I am NOT making this up!!).  Try as I might, I wanted to get a photo of the DISH Town Hall sign and the Direct TV Blimp in the same photo, but the angle just didn’t work out.

Travelographer Extraordinaire. I Enjoy the Ride by traveling and seeing the world around me. We are so busy speeding down the freeways of life that we miss out on the back roads and all the wonderful little stories that every place offers. So, I try to take the less beaten paths and see the real world. I have visited all 50 United States and many provinces in Canada, nearly all prefectures in Japan as well as Seaul, Korea, Shanghai and Suzhou, China and Cenu, Philippines. Also been to Mexico. Father of five, grandfather of 10 and happily married to my sweetheart for nearly 38 years. Fluent in Japanese. Happy and well traveled. See details at http://www.sumoflam.biz/SumoflamBio.htm
