Lookin" For Cable
On no not cable TV. Cable is a man from John's home town Charlotte, Texas. You see John heard Cable may have some wheels to fit his little trailer. Heaven forbid stopping and asking. Anyone in this town would know and could have told us exactly where Cable lives. So I drive up and down the streets with John telling me turn right and then left. We're looking for a place that has lots of junk cars around. Duh! Many places have junk in the yard. Oh well it was fun looking at old houses in different state of disrepair. Not making fun I used to live in a house with junk in the back yard, but not of my choice. John's hometown was an oil town with thriving businesses. when the oil dwindled the town gradually died. Almost every building in the downtown is vacant and run down. There are three churches, one grocery store, a beauty shop, several little mexican food cafes, and one convenience store left. The stop signs are faded and some of the streets are muddy with water standing. We didn't find Cable or his brother Piano.
