No, there really isn't. Nothing about it is good or nice or pretty, not the weather, not the landscape, not the smell of the cattle yards, not the dust, no one I met there, no place that I went, nothing that I did there.
Nothing at all.

She had a cool old Victorian over on Avenue Q by the Galvez. But they moved off when they started to procreate. Schools and gangs on the island.... wasn't a good situation for families.

That girl was cute, but yeah. The weather is especially bad. No cool scenery.
At least in San Angelo we had some awesome landscapes. I loved the terrain in certain spots. Others, not so much. The dust sucked bad.

I can't remember if I've been through San Angelo. I think I have. And by through, I think we drove through it going someplace else sometime when I was a kid. I know I never spent any real time there was memorable.

There's no reason to go there really. Not much happening. It was pretty sedate when I lived there. It has an Air Force base, one of Conrad Hilton's first hotels, the largest earth dam (at the time anyway), and lots of rattlesnakes in the adjacent countryside.

Sounds like a good place to grow up.

I liked it. Glad I got a chance to live there. It could not be more different than here.
Where are you now? CA?

Yep. Here I am. The weather is a lot nicer here. No hundred degree days in June. No bugs.
Kinda bored sometimes. Just that I don't know that many people yet. A few but not like back in Texas.

My sister and her husband are coming next week. She'll have to bring a coat.

That'll be fun hope your BIL is doing alright.
I think the thing that's tough is that all my close friends from my old neighborhood, I met when the kids were babies and little like in grade school. It's not so easy when you don't have that bonding experience like when you were all up in each other's houses all the time. Not so easy when there's no office and no people at work. Not that I hung out with a lot of people from work for socializing on the weekends. A few.

I can relate. I've moved a few times and it is never easy. Oh well, at least I still have the turtles.

BIL is doing ok, thanks for the well-wishes. He is back on the transplant list after having heart surgery and a small stroke. He has a traveling dialysis unit that they take on the road. Sounds like quite an ordeal. It will be good to see him.

wow that's pretty impressive he's making it all that way.

Maybe I should get turtles, or drink more, or find religion, take up knitting, prank calls to pizza chains, origami.

Who knows? I think I"m out of Netflix.

The possibilities for reinvention are endless. My wife watches "House" and "Monk" a lot.

I really should hit the sack. Great to talk as always. Very best wishes to you and yours.

Take up hiking. You're in the perfect place for it.

You know I should, I've been thinking about it but solitary hiking doesn't appeal to me. Sometimes I just drive around and get lost. Gosh that sounds dull. But how else am I going to figure things out?

Before the pot growers got so bad, I used to pack a lunch and pick a hill. When I got to the top, I'd have lunch and enjoy the view.

But you're right. Its better with others. I would imagine that they have hiking clubs around there. People in similar situations who don't like hiking alone.

Pot growers, huh? Sounds interesting.

Scary sometimes. The ones out in the middle of nowhere are the ones who for some reason need more than the 99 plants the law allows for.

I know in the mountains south towards LA they have problems with large gardens. Especially in the state and federal parks. Usually illegals smuggled up and forced to guard them. You don't usually have to worry about them though. They really don't want to be there.

In the woods tending gardens I mean.

I thought about the vegetable garden thing again because things grow here like balls. I started a little but I'm still suffering post traumatic stress disorder over my first best drought fail. Can't get into it. Total commitment phobia issues now.

I had to put off this years garden till next year.

I couldn't afford an enclosure right now. I could have put up a cheap fence, but its not my property and I don't want a hillbilly looking garden next to the well manicured yards. Plus I'm sure some little critter would feast on it.

Deer, rabbits, turkeys, coons, squirrels, ground squirrels....there's no end to the varmits looking for a free meal.
