My name is Hawkeye. I am a morning DJ on 96.3 KSCS. For the past many years I lived in Fort Worth. I loved living in Fort Worth. I made some incredible friends, lived in a beautiful neighborhood and became a member of the community.
But in November of 2008, I got married to my lovely wife Madelyn. And because I work in Arlington and my wife works in Dallas, we found it more conducive to a good family life to move to Dallas.
I realized that I was in an unique position to compare life in Dallas vs life in Fort Worth. Of the 5 million people who call North Texas home, very few can actually say that the have lived in both Fort Worth proper and Dallas proper. I am probably also one of the few people who subscribe to both the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Dallas Morning News.
Before I start, a few items of disclosure.
I am the son of a career military man. We moved quite a bit growing up. Whenever we moved to a new city, the first year was always very difficult. That is why I purposely waited a year before starting this blog.
While growing up, I always longed to live in one place. The longest I have ever lived anywhere is 20 years in Fort Worth.
I have a 15 year old stepdaughter who attends Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas. So we are committed to staying here at least until her graduation.
