RV show, M&O Diner and Leonard's Dept Store museum
Russell & I went to the RV show today at the Ft Worth Convention Center. Wow! I can't begin to tell you how awesome some of those huge monsters were!!!!!!!!! There was every kind of RV (this picture is the inside of one of the RV's that we 'toured'), 5th wheel trailer, pop-up trailer, etc that you can possibly imagine with every possible amenity that you can imagine. We went thru so many and picked up so many brochures that it made our head's swim. After about 3 hours and 8,000+ steps (according to my pedometer), we felt like we were pretty 'full-up' on what RV's, etc had to offer and were ready to go (it didn't help that I'd totally worn the wrong kind of shoes to be climbing in and out of RV's!). Afterwards we made our way to the M&O Diner on Carroll St. in Ft. Worth (thanks to a recommendation from the Ft. Worth Weekly - http://www.fwweekly.com/content.asp?article=6601) where we had very tasty burgers and the opportunity to stroll thru the very interesting Leonard’s Department Store Museum (I think you can ck out the history of Leonard's Dept Store via this link and if not, it's certainly worth Googling). Even if the burgers hadn't been incredibly good, discovering this very unique museum would have made seeking out this little 50's style diner totally worth the trip. And according to the sign outside the diner/museum, it also plans on being the future home of one of the old subway cars from subway that the Leonards built in downtown Ft. Worth back in the day.
