Biking Houston

Ridin' Dirty Volume III, With Video

A trip to Discovery Green and a forlorn trumpeter.

By John Lomax December 9, 2013

My daughter Harriet loves to ice-skate, so yesterday my wife Kelly Graml Lomax and I decided to take her to Discovery Green's seasonal rink. Since I don't love to ice-skate but very much needed some exercise, I rode my bike down there while they took the car. Here is what I saw on my way there and back and at Disco Green, including a trip to Phoenicia, scenes from the war of old-timers vs. newcomers to First Ward, some seasonal cheer, and video of the most existential trumpeter who ever lived.
