Troubadour

“Don’t you have anything for us?” Sitting around Dante’s living room, lit by the glow of the t.v. on mute, while Abe paced back and forth on a call with a local promoter, we waited for an answer. I was nervous, watching the ceiling fan circle, wanting good news. “Ok,” he said. Another pause. “Ok…”…

History

  Each year in the week or so before Christmas, the news anchor will start ribbing the weatherman about having snow on Christmas Day. “So Joe,” he’ll kid Joe, or whoever it happens to be, “Are you gonna make it a white Christmas this year?”  One year I’d like to see the weatherman lose it…

Old Timer

Boerne is chock full of some really neat historic buildings.  As much as Boerne changes and we are slowly overrun by the tidal wave of “growth” coming out of the black hole of San Antonio, we have been able to maintain many of these historic buildings, which I personally find pretty cool.
