  1. About where in Texas are ya'll located? I live about 22 miles or so south of San Antonio near Poteet. In the past 10 years they've paved the road, kinda, 2 miles closer to my place.

    That's because you were a tourist. Those of us that live here can't stand the constant rumble outside from Thursday night to Sunday night. Or the barricades on the streets we normally drive down. Or the ripping of motorcycles down residential areas. We can't stand the tourists either, driving slowly on the Seawall and impeding our trek to work and daily errands. I know they bring money to the city, but they should realize the residents of this city actually have to work.
     
  8. I was both a worker & a tourist. I was working in the Gulf Copper yard on pelican island.

    Went to school, at Goodfellow AFB, San Angelo. Honestly can't remember much about it, but the wind, and blowing snow. I was amazed at all the white stuff, in the middle of nowhere! The young ladies from the college were real friendly, though. They enjoyed going to the EM club, for free music, and cheap drinks.

    Hey Felix...I'm sure you know my (great) uncle..Weldon Oliver. He's was on the City Counsel in Luling. You can always tell when you're getting close to Luling, by the smell of money in the air.

    I'm from Seguin, about 30 mile east of San Antonio. I also lived in San Angelo and Killeen for a few years (thanks to the Army)

    I live in Whiskey Falls up here in Baja Oklahoma, 13 miles south of the Red... 150 miles from anywhere, and six inches from Hell...

    Wichita Falls is where all the oilfield action really took place - but nobody knew where it was, so they called the series "Dallas." We already knew who shot J.R. -- anybody from up here! Wouldn't no snake like that last 10 minutes around the real oil patch...

    Glad to see you got here in the summer, Scotty! You ought to see the winters around here!

    Hell, the way Dallas traffic is, that could be 3 miles out of town!

    (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Hysterical laughter! I posted this, then stepped out the door for a smoke. The skies are really dark and the base's contractor just finished putting down fertilizer pellets everywhere. My first reaction was that I'd missed the e-mail with the ice warning and the building manager had laid down fertilizer to keep us from slipping! That's how unpredictable our weather is here! We had 100 degrees in January, which blew hell out of the local TV station's "First Hundred Degree Day" annual contest! And one woman won it by submitting January 1st!)
