Happy National Pie Day
Well thats what they said on the news this afternoon. Its National Pie Day. You couldn't have proved it by me. You can make mine chocolate with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Another thing I heard the flags at the presidential inaguration were made in San Antonio at the Dixie Flag Company. That was of interest to me. I needed a country road fix this afternoon since it was a pretty day and a new cool front is coming in. So we found a road we haven't been on much. We didn't find much to write about except we came to a split in the road and straight ahead was the Madre Dolerosas cemetary. John didn't lose anytime saying I'll wait in the truck. I shocked him by driving right on past and not going it. I thought better of it because there was a house next door. This gringo might stand out like a sore thumb walking around in this, I presume all mexican cemetary. Someone may think I'm in there stealing plastic flowers or something. We had never heard of this cemetary and it had many graves and is evident by the number of bright colored flowers the relatives are very attentive to this cemetary. We saw a lot of dust and cactus and dead brush and a few cows. We made a big circle and came on home. I cleaned the floor mats and rinsed the dust off the truck.
