dealy plaza and klyde warren park

March 24, 2016

When I was younger, my dad took his first work trip to Dallas and came home with a little book about JFK and the conspiracy around Lee Harvey Oswald. Ever since then, I’ve been intrigued by conspiracies surrounding everything that went down that day (and other conspiracy things in general). So when I was in Dallas for Hope Spoken, besides spending time with friends, the only other thing I wanted to do was go to The Sixth Floor Museum (formerly known as The Texas School Book Depository). I had some free time on Friday, so I ventured off to the museum by myself. It was in the hotel’s 5 mile radius, so I was able to have the hotel shuttle drop me off and pick me up.

I enjoy history, so I was taking it all in as I slowly strolled through the museum looking at all the pictures and listening to the story (they give you a headset to listen to as you go through the museum). After actually visiting the museum and the grassy knoll, I’m definitely in the camp that thinks it was a conspiracy and Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t act alone, or maybe it’s just my love for mysteries and suspense that keeps me thinking that.

After my time at Dealy Plaza, the shuttle dropped me off at Klyde Warren Park, so I could grab lunch and do some people watching. I couldn’t decide what I wanted to eat, so I settled on the Cool Haus ice cream truck. #illalwayssayyestoicecream #evenforlunch

The sunshiny day was absolutely perfect for ice cream and people watching. It was nice to have a day to myself. Life is crazy is with 4 and all the projects I like to get involved in, so I relished this time alone to think and actually be able to hear my own thoughts. I’ve always been one of those people who enjoy eating at restaurants alone once in awhile, so this time of recharging was absolutely welcomed.

Do you believe in any conspiracies and do you enjoy eating out alone from time to time?

    conspiracies are very intriguing to me! and I love to soak in history. I often wonder what it was like to live in different generations and different places. especially when I’ve grabbed a good book set in different times, my mind always drifts to the possibilities. and YES I love my alone time! I enjoy some solitude and dining alone doesn’t really bother me.

    I am totally hooked on this series on Hulu right now and it’s about the conspiracy of who shot JFK. It’s really interesting! You should check it out. It’s called 11.23.63.

    When I was in high school we had to do a huge partner research paper on some kind of topic with two sides. While most people picked something like for and against marijuana my friend and I chose conspiracy theories surrounding JFK’s murder. I think I had the side where Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t do it and she had the side where he did. It was so much fun to research and do. I also love history.

      I think he definitely didn’t act alone. I think those types of school projects are the ones you learn the most from.

    I’m a longtime reader and noticed you were in Dallas around the same time I was! My husband and I are relocating there in a few weeks and had been in town to find our new place. So curious where you ate when you were in town. There are so many great places to choose from in Dallas!

      I ate from Cool Haus at Klyde Warren Park, but most of my eating in Dallas was at the hotel during the conference. I did spend a lot of time eating in McKinney. I had Harvest, Emporium Pies, some BBQ place, and one more but I can’t remember. My fave was the fried chicken at Harvest and Emporium pies… oh my world! So delicious!
