First Day of School

For some reason I could not sleep last night so started sorting through my computer pictures.  Mom could not sleep either so she and I looked at pictures for about an hour then called it a night.

We got up early this morning (for us) since she had a doctor’s appointment.  There we ran into this lady we know, who in turn introduced us to another couple.  I have yet to decide if I like going places and always running into familiar faces or whether I prefer the anonymity of the big city.

Afterward we went to Billy Bob’s favorite store, Wally World.  Actually she stayed in the car and I just went in to buy us some Blue Bell Ice Cream.  There was no way in the world I was going to go near the place this past weekend being it was the tax free holiday and millions of people were going to be shopping for back to school.

I was surprised there were so many kids there, thought school started today.  I asked the cashier and he said those were the kids that did not get their shots in time. No shot records, no school and indeed today was the first day of school.  I ask myself, how lazy can a parent be when they had all summer long to take care of this.  I believe the city even had a couple of free vaccination clinics...oh well it’s their kids future not mine.

I was so tired I even fell asleep during the news, guess my body really needed a nap.  Tonight I also got back to the task of watering all the trees after taking an eleven day break after the 4.47 inches we got back on August 11th.

Good night.  Terlingua Dreams.


  1. Ya could'a post a couple those pics you and mom was look'n at ya know.
    Don't ya just hate it when someone introduces you to someone they know who introduces to someone they know who introduces you to someone they know? Whoa....that a lot of people and all I wanted to do was sit on "da porch" sip'n a cup and mind my own business.
    I don't suppose ya been put'n that hula hoe to them weeds....post pics.

  2. I dont miss the city much, specially the crowds.

    About those needles with so called cures in em, hmmmmm...............

  3. BB it took me two days to be able to post the above picture of my tent, lol. I am "computer challenged".

    No, I have not put the hula hoe to work and as tall as the weeds are now, I don't know if it would even make a dent.

    Can't take pictures because I either lost the camera or left it in Houston.

  4. Nick I found a couple of years ago that I could not stand crowds and when you live in a big city such as Houston that is not a good thing. You don't know how I long for the solitude of Terlingua.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you for your readership.
