San Antonio!

I scanned the hotel breakfast spread in Fort Stockton, TX and knew I was getting close to familiar territory.  There, amongst the breakfast burrito fixins on the “Continental Breakfast” spread was a Louisiana staple- Community Coffee!  Oh, how it’s the little things in life that can bring a smile to your face 😊 I would’ve...

It was a simple question, asked in reference to what I wanted to do with myself after retirement.  “If money and the opinions of others were no object, what would be your wildest thing?“ I surprised myself at how quickly the answer to that question came to me. “Ride around the country on my Harley,...
