Trailer Park Trinkets
Pray tell what is the difference in trailer park trinkets and any other trinkets? This is the name of the newest business in our town. Maybe it's a play on words because of all the RV parks springing up to house the oil field workers.. I know you are tired of me talking of our oil boom but it is awesome to watch. Everywhere there is a space people are renting it for people to park RVs. I was very against the park that went into our neighborhood as I had waited 65 years for a brand new house but I will say it is the nicest one I've seen with black wroght iron fence and gates. They have landscaped it and it has cement areas to park the RV with a picnic table and barbeque pit for each. All the RVs are nice ones so they must be policing who can rent there. Now I see they are buiding a small building toward the back so I presume it is an office or laundry facilities or both. It is almost full in just a few weeks and there is room to expand in back. This area was a ranch at one time and it was still grown up with trees and bushes. I hate to see the wild life pushed out. Our town was once like a combination of living in town and the country but it's getting more citified everyday. Near downtown they have cleared a large area where the rumor is will be a hotel and restaurants. Next town over the same thing and the rumor is a mini mall. The two towns at one time were seperate and you could tell where one ended and the other started. Not anymore they blend together. I guess only the tax rolls would tell for sure. Atascosa county has always had oil but this is a new way of drilling through shale (not shell). Traffic is the new topic of conversation of the old cowboys in the coffee shops now days.
