Another view of the Nolan Ryan Statue. Posted by Picasa

The grounds in front of the Nolan Ryan Center. That's "Lake Tommy Flatt," named for a guy in my hometown of Mexia, Texas, who was the best friend of one of the donors to the museum. Posted by Picasa

Allen just got back from France, where he did sound for the Cornell Hurd Band for the big Country Rendez-Vous Festival. They played for a huge crowd of about 10,000. Allen says it was like a Pink Floyd concert. Here's a shot of the band on stage, with Blackie White doing a song. You can see him in the big overhead screen, among all the lights. Posted by Picasa
