We the Women

I cannot be certain, but I do not think this sign references the 1958 Italian film Siamo donne. Other than that, I am afraid I can’t provide any actual and/or helpful information.

Transportation option

It may not be particularly viable, but it is an option.

Inevitable failure

The town, the business, even that bottom shelf: all doomed, sooner or later.

Ricochet toward the end

My boss tells me this school closed in the 1970s; the Texas State Historical Association concurs, saying the school was operational until 1978.

My traveling companion for the day spotted an un-boarded door around back, which gave us a nice view down the hallway.

Light and history and inertia all headed toward the same ending.

How to warm up the morning

022415

Quitaque’s population is less than 400, so it’s hard to imagine the town ever had need of a boarding house. But we found a two story building that seemed to have once been one. The front of the place was brick with arch-topped windows that still had organdy curtains hanging. The side was less fancy, with window air conditioners instead of curtains. But the back porch was the best.

I think “Warm Morning” is an excellent name for a heater – the name alone would make you feel better about the day.

(My favorite thing, after the heater, is that duplex outlet by the step.)
