Vincent made it through his boarding with flying colors. They loved him! They said he was one of the friendliest and sweetest cats they've ever had boarded there. He seems no worse for the wear and behaved well both coming and going.
I'm tired and a bit lame from my trip and need a vacation to get over it. I took way too many photos. I'm in the process of creating albums on my Photobucket account for them, breaking them down into categories. From there, a slideshow can be created. I have the feeling you'll be dealing with Texas in bits and pieces over the next bunch o' off topic Sundays.
Here we go, in kind of a random order -- clicking on an image will open it larger in a new window:
Yes, I set off alarms with the knee replacement and had to go through extensive screening. They used that body scan thing on me once, then went on to wand and pat me down. It took an extra five minutes or so beyond "normal" people to get through. It was interesting and I always gave myself plenty of time. I have no issues with the TSA folks, but think if someone were to be determined, they'd get through anyway.
This is the pool with the waterfall at the estate we rented. It was too cold to swim. The pool was unheated and needed cleaning. But it still was a focal point and really cool.
I took this at Wildseed Farms
This huge Siamese cat was always hanging around outside the house. He had to be more than 20 pounds.
A building in one of the towns.
I told you these are in random order!
The place is infested with deer. But they're so beautiful I had to stalk and shoot them ... with my camera, of course.
The "tallest building in San Antonio" is merely a facade.
Note the pink armadillo. I wish we had spent more time here. We just passed through.
We were told the faces on the building in San Antonio were to ward off evil spirits.
I can't breathe! Help! Fiesta Week in the Marketplace is like a combination of Mardi Gras meets New Year's Eve in Times Square. SO not my scene. Help!
Dang, these Texas hills cats are HUGE.
I like the seedy and decrepit. What can I say?
They must be. They were there. Well, along with cattle, sheep, goats, llamas, and horses.
Fiesta Week in San Antonio, edited to keep people in color.
I'll be getting more of the photos categorized and such, but need to get this up!
