Hey Gang,
Just wanted to conclude my Texas trip with some additional thoughts and sum it up.

I was quite amused by the 6 day weather forecast. It read 95 - 94 - 96 - 98 HOT - 96 - 95.
98 Hot? What is 95 and 96 a cold front?

I was saddened, which I guess I shouldn't be any more but I was, to see the same old same old corporate stores and restaurants we have here in Ohio. Just looking at the freeway exits it could be Anywhere USA.

I haven't seen all of Texas but the areas I have I was just not that impressed with the scenery, flat and for the most part brown.

When we landed it was raining and below norm temps. I thought we never left Cleveland. Its strange because Texas has been and is in a drought but the day we land.....

I did see quite a few monuments with in God we Trust. In fact San Antonio was named after San Antonio de Padua. But according to liberals and atheists this country was founded on separation of church and state. What ever.

San Antonio impressed me. I loved the river walk and all the historic sites. Tacky tourist shops along side of better gift shops. It was confusing though, with all the Mexican made gifts and logos I wasn't sure what country I was in.

San Antonio to me is a hidden gem. Unless I have been out of the loop, I don't remember hearing much talk about it being a travel destination. I want to go back and see the rest of the sites I missed.

The Alamo. Now that was surprising. I always pictured it out in the middle of some barren dessert. All alone. But in fact, its right in the middle of San Antonio. Across from it was a big monument dedicated to those who died defending it. It was closed when we got there but we were able to peer in through the iron gate. Impressive.

I am sorry but this is where my mind and thoughts went while looking and walking around the Alamo. Seeing how things are now in America, with all the lunacy and socialist atheist talk, if I could take a time machine back I would tell those men, save yourself, its not worth it. Get mad if you like but that's where my mind went.

Directly across the Alamo is a monument honoring the dead who tried to defend the fort. Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett were among the names listed. A few teenagers were running up this monument to have their photos taken. Sitting on a bench directly in front of it was an old man. He looked homeless. Of course I had to talk with him. His name was Jonathon. I wish I had more time to sit there and converse with him but my group was heading to the Guinness museum. Jonathon's family has been in America for 300 years. He was so upset and angry that the teens were running all over the monument and disrespecting the men who gave their lives. Jonathon said if they only understood how hallowed this ground is. Here was a man who appeared homeless and what was he complaining? Not his situation but the lack of respect being shown to the hero's of this nation. That's the true American spirit.

In all it was a fun and memorable trip.

Gotta GoGo!!
