Though both my husband and I lived in Texas at various points in our lives, neither of us had spent much time in Fort Worth. This month, we both spent most of a week there,
held captive brought there by a conference at the Hotel Texas. The hotel, now a Hilton, is famous for being the last overnight stop for JFK and his wife before his assassination in Dallas.
During the lunch hour, we were able to stroll around the city’s downtown. Walking back to the hotel, we did a double take. Were those really trumpets hanging out over the street? Indeed they were! There were two 48-foot-tall angels carved into the facade — marking in no uncertain terms, the location of the city’s Bass Performance Hall.
No doubt about it. Texans do things big.
