Re: A USA story

Hardly anybody goes here anymore.  The interstate has a huge loop around the north side of the city, so not many folks get to see it unless tired or hungry.  We left Abilene in '43 and a couple of years later, the old home place collapsed to the ground.  It's an open field now.  If you come to Texas be sure to come when the wildflowers bloom.  The state was once covered in Bluebonnets in spring but too much growth has wiped out much of the land, but the hill country is still full of them.  This is from a town outside Austin, Burnet TX on Hwy 287 a major north south highway through many small towns.

Our State Flower.  The Indian Paintbrushes and Indian Blankets, with plenty of red are just as attractive, along with many others.  Many thanks to Lady Bird Johnson.  gc
