Not From Texas

















Cowboy wedding nears
What shoes to wear? These - as close
as I get to boots

Artwork at 6° Lounge

Chic Franklin Street bar
French-tini but no sidecar
Where are the people?

Street Marketers for Nacho Libre

Men in tights and masks
invade a downtown deli
Ron is muy macho!

Cigarette machine at Volcano


All brands five dollars
Carcinogen dispenser
Pull lever for joy

Alabama Ale House loo.
Beware your booty!

The Beer Can House, Pt. 2


Lone Star and Buckhorn
cans may fade but marbles will
dazzle forever

The Beer Can House, Pt. 1


Why decorate your
house with beer cans? Folk art? Or
a neighbor from hell?

From Chris, our friend in Sudan


The Blogspot is weird.
The Squirrel scares me.
Please write to me soon.

Sudan is a mess.
I start flying home next week.
I will miss Randa.

All my best to Ron.
I hope to see you this year.
Hugs and Kisses Chris.

Canadian Home Away From Home on Elgin


Pub night second stop:
Maple leaves, moosehead beer mats.
Canada is bland.
- by commonplace

Tossing the bar mat
Our new game, yet a pastime
with no goal in sight
- by catfish

Shepard's Finest English Pub


Red Lion Pub night:
Tandoori quesadillas,
ale, and--yum!--pastie.
