You may not be aware of this, but Dallas, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the surrounding area -- especially down in Waxahachie -- have hosted movie production companies that have turned out some impressive classics, an infamous bank robbery duo yarn based on truth and a respected Kennedy assassination thriller.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. 

In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips lasting a little over an hour, Larry focuses on the fun-filled "State Fair," the 1967 bullet-riddled thriller "Bonnie and Clyde" and more.
 
Movie-making brought director Oliver Stone and star Kevin Costner to the area.  The Dallas Cowboys were spoofed a little here, and Sally Field learned that we like her, we like her in a movie she starred in here.

Scooter, my 16-year-old dachshund (wiener dog to most) had to, uh, dash for the backdoor to do some serious business in the backyard.

Scootie, lovable, funny and loyal, knew exactly what time it was, and it had nothing to do with a clock.

But what about us humans?
