Why Buy When You Can Look? Owner of Oswald Rental in Oak Cliff Is Giving Tours of Alleged JFK Assassin’s Room

Living Luxe in Southlake: Merlene Ingraham is Selling Her Gorgeous Southlake Home to Move Closer to Dallas’ Culture
Southlake is such a fabulous town, with great schools, incredible shopping, and beautiful neighborhoods. I just love this area, which is perfect for families with school-aged kids. But what if your nest is empty and you’re not expecting a boomerang kid? Downsizing has probably crossed your mind.
An anonymous reader sent us this message this week, which started a discussion between me and Candy:

Maybe it’s just me, but how can you compare Dallas and Fort Worth without talking about the dirt, Thrillist? Seriously!? After reading two bartenders, one each from Dallas and Fort Worth, verbally slug it out over which city deserves top billing in North Texas, I was remiss. Sure, the beer, the culture, and the music is great, but don’t you want to know which city’s real estate reigns supreme?

Thursday Three Hundred: Have a Classy Country Fourth of July at This Gorgeous North Richland Hills Home
We drove out to Sachse last night to barbecue and watch fireworks with my cousin and his family. It was so delightful to get away from the city for the evening and enjoy a little small town patriotism. The weather was perfect to pull up a chair in their front yard and watch the fireworks after filling our bellies.
