We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Blast from the Past: Oakville (2)


This morning Zephyr and I went to the hill again to poke around. Can you imagine this place with criminals spitting tobacca on the floor or out the windows. Since it was closed, I will try to contact the owner. It's amazing to think about the persons who built this town which is slowly fading into history. Will we become a 'bump' in the road of life?


Next we will explore the wishing well to the right of this scene. Way cool, I have to remember to take some coins with me. Do you think folks got their 'copper' intake from drinking well water with pennies pitched in for wishes?



















The other pictures of the Sheriff's car are found here. It reminds me of a PT Cruiser.

Thoughts from inside the coop.......
