I've wasted way too much time trying to post a picture of another piece of farm machinery and then a picture of tasty looking strawberries. Oh well I'll just say we have had to plan another route to our little historical church tomorrow morning. Every Sunday we go through the strawberry capital of Texas. This week-end the yearly strawberry festival is being held there. We have a lot of ugly little towns here in south texas and the strawberry capital is one of them but it comes to life on the week-end of strawberry festival. Thousands of people come from san antonio and all the surrounding towns to eat strawberry shortcake, listen to country music, and look at all the booths with everything you can imagine to buy. When we go through this town and then need to turn left across traffic it would be next to impossible unless they have someone in that intersection directing traffic which is doubtful. The traffic will be bumper to bumper for miles. The bad weather recently had growers worried but I heard they got most of the strawberries picked. There have been years when the strawberries didn't make well for some reason or other and they would have to ship the strawberries in from another state as you know the show must go on.
