On the Road: Model T Man

Classic cars have always amazed me because they have stood the test of time. To see an old car still running down the road shows how well those cars were made. You don’t see too many cars from the 80’s and 90’s any more because they were not made to last.

YP Challenger of Dallas

Through The Lens: Tennis For Everyone

When I was younger I tried my hand at tennis but found I had no talent for that. I couldn’t control the ball off my racquet. I would try to hit it like I was a pro and the ball would fly out of the courts. In today’s Through the Lens I went to the YP Challenger of Dallas where they’re mission is to take tennis to everyone.
