" Never just go pick up that piece of wood over there on the ground!  First---poke it with something!  Don't just reach down to turn on your water hose without first taking a look in the grass by your house!!  Crawling under a house to do some repairs can be......umm.......an adventure!!  Keep a sharp eye out while walking in tall grass.....or short grass.....or a sand dune!! "

That's enough to keep me in the north country. I've been to Dallas and Houston quite a few times for Shot Shows and Tackle Shows. Been to Southfork for a couple barbeques, once we were out somewhere from the ranch and had rattlesnake cooked in big frying pans and had beef that was done in the ground.... the beef was super can't say the same for the snake.

Hays on the Pedernales by Wilbarger      

In 1841, Jack Hays, Captain of the Texas Rangers, got attacked by Comanches and took refuge on top of Enchanted Rock and held off the attackers for hours with his firearms while holed up in a crevice.  I understand he was in possession of some Colt Patersons.  I actually read about this episode when I was a kid in the 1950s. 


      














Times have changed.  On the Internet, people discuss climbing Enchanted Rock like they are climbing Annapurna. Rest breaks halfway up, water breaks...etc.  


My girlfriend and I climbed up there and looked all around back in 1970 and flew back down to the car and drove back home to San Antonio for supper and a movie later that night. I believe I was wearing penny loafers!!  Hahahahahaa....she was in shorts!  


We got a drink when we got home!   


 





I used to deer hunt on property bordering Enchanted Rock state park. It's a beautiful area of the state, with TONS of deer!

Texas looks like Southern Africa.  So do parts of New Mexico and Kansas. The Hill Country is amazing.  
Now we've got exotic animals running loose.  We should bring in some elephants and lions and leopards and all other African antelopes into America before the Africans finish destroying Africa.
