|Val Verde County Library in Del Rio, Texas|
I am aware that I suffer from CRS...but I know I have been to the library on more than one occasion this year. When I walked in the first thing I saw was this WIFI sign...I have moaned and groaned on this blog about how our library does not have WIFI when even small town libraries do. I asked the guy at the front desk when they got it...his response was...A YEAR AGO! Now I do not want to call him a liar but that is not true!
If you recall I had Cricket as my ISP and it was worthless...almost as slow as my former dial-up service. If I wanted to watch a video or open a big file I had to go to the library. I have only had Road Runner since late October 2012...right before my trip to Terlingua. So no...don't be telling me it has been a year...grrrrrrrr!
These now two empty lots to the right of the library will be where hopefully the new addition will be built. It is really needed as this library was built in 1969, and the town has grown a lot since then. Hopefully it will be approved in the November 2013 elections but it has been a political hot potato for decades.
|On these two lots sat two beautiful old houses that the city|
demolished after it acquired them.

It is no wonder I have had B-B-Q on my mind. Went and got my usual brisket plate and got Mom her smoked turkey leg. While there is another big national place in town and I think one going towards the Lake...this one is across the street from HEB, is close to us and most importantly it is locally owned.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
