To think that the things that attracted me to the big city as a young adult are the same things that now repel me.
On the way to Houston I filled up in San Antonio at a very reasonable price.
It was a good thing I took some jello and crackers because I did not even have time to go buy me dinner.
I left early the next morning after only three hours of sleep. All I could think as I drove home was how hungry I was. Stopped off in Sealy, Texas and headed to a Whataburger for breakfast. When I think of cheating on a diet, I picture myself eating a pizza, a juicy hamburger or some succulent pasta dish...never a breakfast platter at a fast food restaurant!
It wasn't that good but the people that work there were very friendly. I did appreciate the two cups of coffee I had as I needed to wake up.
Though gasoline was cheaper in Houston, I did not feel like stopping and besides I only paid $1.95 a gallon in Sealy.
I enjoyed the stretch of highway between Uvalde and Del Rio. The purple sage is blooming and it looked absolutely beautiful.
My camera needs replacing and I need to upload the pictures I took to my old computer or I am not able to post them on this blog. Oh where is my computer savvy TWC (tall weathered cowboy) when I need him? :-(
This trip really took a toll on me, I can no longer do one day back-to-back trips.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
