Out and About in Texas

If you ever wanted to get to know the business end of a zebra (or giraffe or gazelle), head on over to Glen Rose, Texas to Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve. This is a park that is along the lines of the Lion Country Safari of my youth. Lion Country did not survive because the owners overlooked the fact that people will always roll their windows down, even when you tell them not to, and zebras and giraffes are much less likely than the king of the jungle to tear your arm from its socket.
On this date: In 1962, the Rolling Stones first appeared at the Marquee Club in London.
