Greetings From Brownsville TX


It’s about ten degrees warmer here than it was when I left Corpus. But alas, it’s drizzling today, supposed to rain all day tomorrow, and of course everything will be closed on New Year’s. So it’ll be a while till I can start sightseeing. I’ll be here three or four weeks, long enough to see everything. After that, I don’t know–depends on the weather. I have to be in Pennsylvania in June for my niece’s wedding, I wanna be in Cincinnati in May, and perhaps Omaha for April. In between there, I haven’t decided yet.

I’ll be looking for kids smoking in the boy’s room.  Ya have to be kinda old to remember THAT reference.  😉

  1. Well, at least you are warmer. I’ll be interested to see which cities you pick for Jan – March. I know you hate the cold.

  2. Sounds super….can’t wait for the review and pics as you explore those cities…well, maybe not Buffalo….we used to skip classes at college (near Rochester) and act like tourists in Buffalo…the Falls were great and I loved the Canadian side, but not so much Buffalo itself.

    I want to hear all about the Hurricane that wiped out Galveston in 1900.

    Happy New Year!

  3. Well, it looks like Galveston isn;’t gonna work for me—no good places to overnight there.

    Looks like maybe Fort Worth instead.

    Rainy today in Brownsville, so I still haven’t been able to visit anywhere yet. Maybe tomorrow.

  4. That rain should be here in Orlando by Friday, then a cold snap follows, so you should have better by then.

  5. Jan: Yeh, it’s still pretty crappy here today, but it’s supposed to get nicer for the weekend, then be warm all next week.

    In the meantime, I’m camped in the food court at the local mall, just down the road from my Walmart. 🙂

  6. One crazy thing where I’m camped are the birds: apparently the Walmart lot is a favorite roosting place for all the birds around here, and every night the tree, electric poles and streetlights are crammed full of hundreds of Grackles and Starlings. Be careful where you walk, and don’t park underneath them. 😉
