Reader contribution

One of the perks of having a blog is getting to correspond with people. B. (Barney) Ward of ofmadventures.blogspot.com and I have emailed a few times. He sent me what life looks like in his part Texas at the moment.

Texas is one of those places that I would like to visit and I am aware that Texas is an awfully big place.

I was informed that this one is an equipment barn on a not being worked ranch just north of Del Rio, Texas two miles inside the USA from Mexico on Highway 90. Typically they are used as an equipment/ truck/goats or sheep housing. There is no snow down this way and it seldom freezes longer than once for three to four hours every fifth or sixth year. 


  1. Everyone has a favorite part of Texas. I like the Granbury area, south of Ft. Worth on the Brazos. I think that if I moved to Texas that it would be high on my list. Close enough to Ft. Worth, but far enough away.

    It's a great state, a big state, and there is a lot there.

  2. Oh, so nice and green! I miss green.

  3. I have been looking at your blog for several months now and it reminds me of the times I travelled through the country that you are now. In some cases it is sad to see the destruction of towns where I stopped for a meal or over night or we went for a vacation. But time passes and I realize that I went in the late 50's and 60's. So much has changed and yet the land remains the same. I am going to see if I can get away in the summer and visit. Ted High.

  4. Ah - that green. It's but a distant memory here still. Can't imagine having no frost and then only for a few hours.
