After breakfast we were off again. First we drove through the old Fort Wolters. They have used a lot of the old buildings as business warehouses but also have revamped several and people now live in them. After that short drive, we made our way into town to visit the Crazy Water store. Crazy Water comes from a couple of the mineral wells in this area. There are four levels of water, just water, low medium and high. The story goes that in the mid 1800's, a woman with dementia was ...

Words and the couple photos that turned out just don't do it justice. We hadn't been there since we were very little. We walked one cavern, which was a ...

Today is my birthday...the big 3-4. Not a very momentous birthday, but another one nonetheless and I'm very grateful for that. For the past decade, I've spent my birthday in Cleveland, Ohio (whether I lived there or not) with friends on the patio of the Beer Engine on Detroit St. It was mighty strange to not be doing that this year and to find out that most of our friends in Cleveland wouldn't be ...
