Miguel & Angelica


I just added a new rule to my other one – always look around back. The new rule is take the other route into town.

I’ve been to Plainview a lot of times. And I always go into town the very same way. The other day, I took a different exit (there aren’t that many to choose from) off the highway, which put me within eyesight of what used to be a big grocery store. It looked nicely abandoned, so of course I had to check it out.

And (around back, of course!) I noticed that Miguel and Angelica had proclaimed their love on a trash container. As one does.

  1. I have an affinity for your part of the country, having lived in Corpus Christi, Austin, and Albuquerque, and having driven between said cities, passing through such metropolitan areas as Muleshoe, Dumas, Quitaque, and Plainview. For a genealogy project I interviewed a distant relative in Plainview and we stayed overnight in an RV “campground” — Ollie Liner RV Park, 2000 S. Columbia. If memory serves it showed signs of having once been a drive-in theater, but looking at Google satellite and street views, I can’t tell if that’s really true or not. A desolate, asphalty campground, you might find a photograph there in early morning or late afternoon. The nearby train track was very loud at night.
    Hola to Miguel and Angelica.


  2. This love is doomed from the start. 😉


  3. I agree with John and Sue. But glad you took the other exit.
