ibis and chicken enchiladas

The Trinity River Audubon Center is in the southern part of Dallas, about 45 minutes' drive from our home. Before I set off to go there, I stopped and put air in two tires.
I like that my car tells me when things like this should happen.

On the drive down, I listened to a podcast about technology. When I arrived at 10:17, it was a very hot day. Today was dollar day at the center, as is every day of August.

I walked for 70 minutes. I saw lots of birds, flowers, a water snake and a deer. There were ibis, which I do not always see in my part of Texas. But here are pictures of other things:

I went to Spring Creek Barbecue in Richardson for a turkey lunch. I visited Micro Center to browse but bought nothing. I stopped in Radio Shack, and bought on sale a
device that provides an emergency phone charge. I will use that while traveling, particularly with the imminent onset of curious new regulations about airport security and devices out of charge. I looked in Staples and bought nothing there.

My wife and I dined at San Miguel, a nice, unpretentious neighborhood Tex/Mex place in McKinney. Now we are watching "After the Thin Man" on television.
