Title: Maya Calendar
Description: Artifact of Maya Calendar in a sunray

-----NOW: San Diego Zoo's "Elephant Odyssey" exhibit has opened. I don't think I have ever seen a zoo that has that many elephants.
-----June 21: Wedding Guide Bridal Extravaganza. Austin
-----July 3-5: Freedom Fiesta. 42nd annual. Seguin,Texas. It has a jalapeno-eating contest.
-----July 4-August 4: World E-book Fair. I attend each year. Thousands of e-books can be browsed and downloaded for FREE.
-----July 29-August 2: Maine Lobster Festival. I was just reading a review of this event (and whether one should partake) written by the late David Foster Wallace. It is the 62nd Annual celebration.
-----August 15-16: Texas Testosterone Festival. I think it would make for some unique photographic opportunities.
-----September 20,2009-January 3,2010: The Artistic Furniture of Charles Rohlfs. Dallas Museum of Art exhibit.I am wondering about the framework under the piece shown...was this to store something on or purely decorative? Beautiful carving.
-----2011. Six Flags Amusement Parks 50th Anniversary Celebration. I plan to go to at least part of it. In less fun news, Six Flags had to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week.
-----Sometime: There is to be a biographical film about Sam Kinison. It will air on HBO. I wonder if they could get the actual celebrities for the "Wild Thing" video. I also hope that some of Sam's sermons from when he was a pastor are included.
-----Sometime: I am hoping that Iron Butterfly answers my e-mailed suggestion that they somehow digitalize Elvis singing In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida. Elvis would have been excellent at singing this song. :-) It would be neat to see. :-) Husband does a pretty good imitation of what this would be like....I ask him to do it for me all the time.

What's happening in your life (and on your blog)??? :-)
What else should I add to this list?
