made a trip to Austin Texas in July 2005 to see my parents and
brothers. Some would ask why would you go to Texas in the dead of
summer? That's just the way my schedule worked out and it was not
too hot although air condition was welcomed relief during the hot
Had a great time.
The picture below was taken with Mom at Merrills rent house. The
house is still under construction at that time.
The picture below is with my Dad.
Howard purchased a small ranch near Luling. The picture below
shows some of the "extras" that came with the land. I'm sure he
will figure out how to clear the land.
We went on a short drive through the area and we found this old
bridge. Still open but man, it was getting very old and worn.
Mom hosted a party to celebrate my visit. I wish I could remember
the names of the guests.
Another pic from the party.
Here we are again. The guy on the right has hard luck.
Wrecked his truck shortly after I left and then was bit by a rattle
snake at the end of the summer. Very bad situation.
