Have a great weekend!
Got busy, busy with family stuff this weekend...
Spent Sunday at the FTW Zoo... The place was jammed..

I have no idea where the new tag is located... Nice building though.. !

Looks like a government building with the state flag on top, or maybe a landmark?

I was out of town all weekend. I have no clue where that building it but doesn't really matter at the moment as I have no time.

Looks like an old power station to me, but they tore down the stacks to the one down town so I dunno where it is.

Looks like its on a river cause there is a dike behind the building. Maybe here in Fort Worth or along the Trinity in South Dallas.

There's that FP&L (TXU?) building on the river at Main Street in FTW, but, I don't recall a stack...

Similar architecture...

No, they took the stack down a few years ago. Also, they don't have a boat ramp (that I know of) on that river. Its for non-motorized boats only.

You're right, it looks similar and the age is about right also. It wouldn't surprise me to that its a TXU structure, but I don't think its the one just north of downtown.

Ray Hubbard has a power station on the lake, but, I think the architecture is wrong.. I don't know that side of town very well..

Its looks to be on a little lake. I was thinking maybe lake Arlington. I'll admit I'm not familiar with that lake at all. It could also be White Rock Lake in Dallas. I'll look at some satellite photos and see If I can't find it around those two lakes.

NM, I was 205ed.

I remember riding my bicycle near that structure when I lived in Dallas years ago. I thought it was purchased by Mort Myerson and converted into a home. I might be wrong about that...

I went to Ikea Sunday and there was a guy with a HD jacket on. I asked if he rode and he said yes. His motive for riding that cold day - If they were on the motorcycle, she couldn't bring any furniture back. Unfortunately, for him, they do have a delivery service...

I didn't ride this weekend, but I am planning on getting out today. I wasn't planning to head that way, but maybe I will...

The Texas Shark was on display at Stroker's yesterday for their annual "Spring Fling". Place was very busy and there were even a few sportbikes and one GoldWing there. They also had a full display of all the Royal Enfield line.


But the real question is, when is someone going to pick up this tag?
