we've been up among the trees
I wanted to go for a ride this afternoon. John always says go where I want since it is my truck and gas. I headed the way I wanted to check out some roads between here and San Antonio but John always suggests somewhere else other then where I was heading. Par for the course today. He suggested going over a new bridge we have been planning to drive over. It's on a road named after our town, Pleasanton, and was years ago the way people traveled from San Antonio to our town before the interstates. The bridge was higher then the old one and when we looked to the side we realized we were even with the tops of the trees. Nice bridge but it leads to an area where they have sold one or two acre tracts and you know what can happen were there are no restrictions. It looks like a grave yard for trailer houses and cars. Cars that need the attention of some of the shade tree mechanics who we saw working in their yards. Dogs were running everywhere. I wanted to stop to take a picture of an old shed that someone had painted red,white, and blue with a Texas star on the side. When several large dogs ran down the drive-way I though better of it. Don't let me come off as hollier then thou in this entry. There is nothing wrong with trailer houses or shade tree mechanics but I do believe when God permits a person to own things we should take care of them to the best of our ability and when they are past that, tear them down and dispose of them.
