Who: The Texas Triffid Ranch is a gallery specializing in custom enclosures for carnivorous, prehistoric, and otherwise exotic plants.

The Groundhog Day open house at the gallery is this weekend, so for those in Dallas on Saturday, we’ll see you there. For everyone else, especially for those in the American Midwest, here’s hoping that Sid here doesn’t see his shadow, because we don’t need six more weeks of this. (40 years ago, I was in Chicago, still digging out from under the Blizzard on 1979. I sympathize more than you know.
Have a good time this weekend. Stay warm. Don’t let the Morlocks bite.
The last weekend before things start getting really interesting for 2019, and we have a soundtrack for everybody:
And only 75 days until the first day of spring!
16 years of marriage as of today, and it just keeps getting better. Considering that most of the dead pool bets were around “six months,” I sometimes wonder if we should have taken a dive at the end of 2003, divorced, collected the money, and continued to live in sin.
Okay, so nobody gets a Doctor Who Christmas special this year. Good thing that Canada’s analogue was prepared for this eventuality, eh?
Just a friendly reminder that the last of the 2018 Nightmare Weekends Before Christmas open houses starts on Saturday at 6:00 pm, and this will be the last Triffid Ranch open house for the year. (If you can’t make it but still need that gift that everyone will talk about for years, please feel free to set up an appointment.) Until then, music.
The first Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas open house of 2018 is Saturday starting at 6:00, so we’ll see you then. Until then, music.
Things keep getting more lively, what with showing plants at the Swizzle’s Hawaiian Holiday Popup on Saturday and the first Nightmare Weekend Before Christmas open house at the gallery on December 15. The days are getting a lot shorter lately, aren’t they?
Because it’s spring in Australia, particularly Queensland…
I’m out at the Dallas Fantasy Fair as you read this, but it’s time to reminisce. 20 years ago this Sunday, the final broadcast of a television experiment went shooting out of Earth’s atmosphere. It wasn’t the catalyst, and it certainly wasn’t the cause, but that broadcast was a good marker for my life Before and my life After. Considering how the life After turned out, the show’s final message couldn’t be more appropriate. Here’s to everyone, including an old friend who is still horribly missed, who changed the world without realizing it at the time.
Heading to Austin for the Blood Over Texas Horror For the Holidays bazaar on Sunday: if you aren’t heading out that way, don’t wait up.
And because I’m from Dallas, I expect to hear this all weekend:
Nearly sixteen years of marriage later, and it’s STILL this much fun:
If you’re in the Dallas area or happen to have quick access to the Dallas area, you are cordially invited to the Triffid Ranch open house running today. If you aren’t, there’s always music.
