We're on a crusade, and if it has the name Alzheimer's attached to it, we're there. Last week my husband, my BFF, Meryl Comer, and I went from DC to Big D, Dallas, Texas for the Alzheimer's AWARE Luncheon. I have never been to Texas and it seemed to me like a long way to travel for chicken salad, but that just shows my ignorance about the big state. As it turned out, the whole event was elegant. The Stetsons were big (particularly on Larry Hagman of "Dallas" fame) and the jewelry was even bigger (particularly on Phyllis George of Miss America fame), but the biggest thing Dallas had to offer was their hearts (particularly the former football players and the surprising sentimental Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys).
