Got up very early (for me) as mother tends to have company drop by on Saturday's and today was not the exception. We needed to go run a couple of errands and also take dad's old car for its weekly drive.
I did not feel like getting dressed up or putting on make-up so I just threw on something and grabbed my cowboy hat and big sunglasses. Our first stop was the post office and as I was headed back to the car a guy stopped me and asked if I recognize him? Before I could answer he told me who he was.
Well of course I did not recognize him he is big and tall now and the last time I saw him was like four or five years ago. Apparently neither did mother. His grandfather was a very good friend of my parents and he is the gentlemen that built their house. I met this kid when he was six years old.
I was going to go to HEB and come back home but curiosity got the best of me and I decided to head out to the area parks to see how many more campers had arrived. If you look at my posts and pictures from last year, it is evident that there has been a decline. However, I would not know what to attribute this to.
These were taken at what I think is now called Star Park (don't quote me though) but back in my day was the State Park since it faces Highway 90.
These were taken at San Felipe Lions Park...
This was taken at Moore Park, this was the family that was having a cook-out on Thursday when we drove by but had not yet set up camp.
After satisfying my curiosity went to HEB and as I was waiting to merge with the line to exit the store a guy in a motorcycle waves at me, so I wave back. Then the motorcycle gets out of line and drives up to us and when he smiles I realize it is Cliff my Del Rio blog reader. I asked him how he knew it was me? He said there aren't that many red Ford Fairmont's in Del Rio....jajajajaja :D
I do not think Mr. Ponce's grandson or Cliff would have recognized me if I had been in another vehicle.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
