In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

A Short Trip

 I took a short trip West to the Balcones Escarpment with my wife over the last few days. It's only about a 5 hour drive, so an early start gets you to the area before noon. I know some are wondering what the Balcones Escarpment is, which is not the usual term. Most call it the edge of the Texas Hill Country, although that really doesn't describe some of the area. 

I started to write about the mountains called hills, the crystal clear Frio River, and the beautiful scenery surrounding the area, but my words can't describe what can be found on the internet in photos. Regardless of the scenery, the trip was one of the peaceful, quality time ventures my wife, and I, take every once in a while. We need it, because it allows us to deflate, wonder about things of the past, be awed by God's creations, and allows long moments of just being together. It's a good thing. 


  1. That starts just north and west of me. It's a beautiful place for sure.

    1. I wanted to stay in Uvalde, but it was a last minute decision to go. I forgot it was Labor Day weekend, so I stayed in Pearsall, which turned out to be an interesting town to visit. All in all, it was a great trip.

  2. Hiked those with The Boy when he was in Cubbies.
