Kool Inside

(Oh, how my kids hate it when I start out a story ‘Back in the day………’  Roll your eyes kiddos, here we go.)

On the door of an old country store

 

Back in the day (LOL), early 60’s probably, when we still had the phones with a rotary dial on them and they came in one color -black-  and you still found the occasional car or truck with a three on the tree, air conditioning was not a widespread given as it is today.  This was especially true in the rural areas.

As times changed and these little country stores ‘upgraded’, many

Terlingua Reprise - Hasta la vez próxima

Entrance to the Green Brute's summer home - Much more effective than a simple 'Trespassers will be shot' sign don't you think?

Red Bluff in the evening light

Terlingua Reprise - Cowboy Coffee

Headed south out of Balmorhea on Highway 17 was a fine place to be on a Friday afternoon in March.  Neither Miss Kathy or I had ever been down that route through the Davis Mountains and on through Ft Davis to Alpine.  Miss K seemed to enjoy it but then any combination of desert + mountains makes her smile.  I think both of us would have liked to explore Ft Davis a bit more but with a DTB each in tow; you just don’t pull off anywhere.  We were pushing to get to Alpine before close of business anyway.  I
