March 28, 2012

Got up early because we had a doctor’s appointment in Uvalde, Texas. Yesterday on the way to Del Rio I tried to find the place but since I did not have the address and just a vague idea where it might be, I was not able to locate it.

Today it turned out that the office was right before my eyes, talk about being blind! While I drive by Uvalde every time I go to Houston, I am not very familiar with the town.  It has grown so much lately.  They have a Cancer Care Center that serves the nearby towns so people do not have to go all the way to San Antonio for their treatments.

Was envious when I saw that they are building a Walgreens. To some that live in a big city you might be saying what is the big deal about a Walgreens?  Well to us it is a big deal as there are no big chain drugstores unless you go to San Antonio, which is 144 miles from Del Rio.  At least now it will only be 70-mile drive to Uvalde.

We went to Applebee’s and had a nice meal.  Mom even had beef, now that is a miracle!

I am beat tonight so was planning on turning in early but that was not to be.  My close friends, acquaintances and even my enemies know that I love to watch foreign soap operas or telenovelas or novelas as some people call them.

If you know I am watching my soap operas why in the heck are you calling me if it is not IMPORTANT?  I love this neighbor lady but she calls me at the most inopportune times and keeps me on the phone for HOURS!!

 I have my mother to tend to and put to bed, even after reminding her of that she says “I’m not going to keep you very long” and then proceeds to tell me a story about people I do not even know!  Yet I have to take her calls because I am afraid it might have something to do with my house in Houston.

People PLEASE be considerate of your friends that have favorite shows.  You may not like what they are watching but be respectful of their preferences. Ok end of rant.

$3.69 for regular in Uvalde, Texas back in Del Rio, Texas it was $3.79 a gallon so filled up at their local HEB.
My computer is giving me problems again so I have not been able to upload pictures to my Photobucket account.  Will update my posts with pictures at a later time because if I try to do it right now, I may just shoot my computer and put it out of its misery!

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams and not Houston neighbor’s nightmares like in my case :-(


  1. Long ago i took a nap when my baby did, and there were a few that would call, so i took to taking the phone off the hook. One made a comment about how rude that was,,HA,,i thot it was the other way around! I fully respect other ppls preference, and there are a couple,,i just don't know when to call,,,hahahahah

  2. It was 9:40 p.m. and I think that unless it is an emergency you should not call people after 9:00 p.m.

    She knows I watch my soap opera, then the evening news followed by Letterman but it just goes in one ear and out the other.

    I have decided that if the phone rings after 9:00 p.m. to just let the answering machine pick it up and save me some grief.

  3. I haven't hitch hiked in Texas since I escaped from prison. Ahhh! memories.
