I grew up in a town with hippies, rednecks, and a reservation. My daddy was a cowboy and my mother was a Baptist. Thus, my life experiences molded me to be slightly off center at all times...sometimes right, sometimes left.

Same Place, This Year

Viva Luckenbach!

There's a place I know where we all go,
A little way down the road,
It ain't far from here,
we like to sit and drink beer,
Play dominoes and tell jokes.
We've been stopping by since 49,
Ain't nothing fancy,
just kids and ranches and
Clean white shirts and jeans!

Lots of smiling faces,
little children running around,
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town!
Dirt daubers humming,
see the stickle burrs on your sock,
Sure signs you spent some time
in beautiful Luckenbach!
Well, let me tell you now all about the town. . .
How it came to be. . .
In the 1800's they came in buggies
To meet and trade and buy feed.
They built the blacksmith's shop,
then later on
They added the cotton gin. . .
But the old dance hall and general store's
Where it all begins and ends!

Lots of smiling faces,
little children running around
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town
Dirt daubers humming,
see the stickle burrs on your sock
Sure signs you spent some time
in beautiful Luckenbach! In the 50's people moved to cities,
Leaving it all behind
Luckenbach closed down for good,
It just fell on a harder time
One day Hondo, driving by,
Wished he had a beer
So he bought the place and he opened it up
That's reason we're all here
Lots of smiling faces,
little children running around,
Everybody's somebody in an old hill country town!
Dirt daubers humming,
see the stickle burrs on your sock,
Sure signs you spent some time
in beautiful Luckenbach!

Insert Clever Title Here

More pictures--one last sheep, and a couple of flower's. Ever try to take a picture of a poppy when the wind is blowing and the light is low? Just try to accomplish that shutter speed. We had to up the ISO to get it done, but I like the picture. My goddaughter took the hibiscus picture.

More Hill Country

I actually found a font called "script of sheep" to use in my scrapbook with these. It doesn't look like sheep, but I had to use it. You would think these girls had never seen an animal before. If anyone is feeling bad for them, they have horses, cows, cats, dogs and other animals I sure I'm forgetting.

The Chair

Well, excuse me,
but I think you’ve got my chair.
No, that one’s not taken, I don’t mind
If you sit here, I’ll be glad to share.
Here are a couple of shots that we took while in the Hill Country. I've actually got two pages of them....

A great photo

I don't like to publish people on my blog...but this one is a little to great to not put up.... The twilight in the background makes it.

Will it work

Dave's complaining about the drum roll guy...I'm back from my second trip to the Hill Country, and starting to work the pictures. Last time I tried, this didn't work......so drum roll please....
Artistic direction for this photo was provided by my goddaughter. Notice the spider web...

Not the Hill Country

Although, I did have a fabulous time on my vacation. I'm working on my photobooks, and thought I would post this photo....Okay, it won't upload, but I will figure it out soon and upload some more pictures.
