Captain Jack Bear - Dallas

 
Dallas
 
Arrived in Dallas, and hopped on train to get to Hostel, found it no worries,
Then headed off into Downtown to look around,
 
 
 


We found a funky fountain which kept turning on and off! I didn’t realise this and just as we were gonna have a pic the fountain turned off! 


 
Then it came back on again and there was much rejoicing! Yea!

 
 

we found A funky castle next to the JFK memorial

We walked to the JFK memorial, and to the place where he was shot.



 














And no, I didn’t stand on grassy knoll and shout DUCK! I’m not Kryten! (Time Slides series 2 Red Dwarf)
 
I did take some pics thou, it was quite creepy, they had a X on the road where he was shot,





 and there were two guys trying to sell magazines with all the newspaper articles and conspiracies on them,
 
And they pointed out the sixth floor window where the gunman allegedly shot him from,
its the one on the end 2nd from the top!
 



and they also pointed out the grassy knoll, 


and  X marks the spot


another window, which other gunmen might have been too…

 




this is JackBear on the grassy knoll
 




We then went to find the Build-a-bear shop as JackBear misplaced a button, and bless them; they just replaced his shirt for a new one! So JackBear decided he needed new boxer shorts and black trousers! Yea!
 
Then back to the hostel! Knackered!!!!!!!!!! but got some shiny pics of the night time view of Dallas

Why Howdy thar!
YAYS Big D.
The red castle is the Dallas County courthouse.

My grandmother's brother worked with Oswald on the same floor in the SBD that day, and was the person who was mistaken for him outside downstairs at the time he was shot. (wearing the plaid shirt)

*waves to you from nearby Fort Worth*

yeah! Dallas! Fort Worth would be better, but Dallas is good. ;-)

You know Blake's 7? After a convention, took "Vila" down to the Memorial. It was lots smaller, no x on the road. He looks down the road and runs across. Crazy guy *looked the wrong way* and nearly got himself run over. That's our fun Dallas story.

Thanks for the pictures. You should submit some of these photos you have been taking to those city sites photo places.

Oh, and Dallas Morning Snooze and WFAA in the same picture...You make be GRIN! 4paws up for these pictures. Hope you are having as much fun as it looks.

I'm sorry to have followed you back to your journal to post this, but I can't seem to find an email address listed in your profile.

I'm a mod at torch_wood, the comm where you've been posting links to these photos. You've been repeatedly asked by other mods there to stop posting them as they are off-topic and include a large image, both of which are against the comm rules: as stated to you by the other mods, you are welcome to post them in the OT comm torch_wood_cafe. I'm assuming you simply don't have comment notifications turned on, and thus are unaware of this.

Your previous posts have now been deleted from the community, but this is time-consuming for the mods, and we have a standard 'three strikes or you're out' rule regarding people whose posts repeatedly break the community rules. Since you seem not have received the earlier warnings, we're giving you a final chance. Please do not post any more of these links at torch_wood. If we see another one, you'll be banned from the community. You can contact me at uktechgirl AT gmail DOT com (you'll find the other mods emails on the t_w comm userinfo page too) if you need to discuss this further. Thanks.
