Perils of outdoor seating


These old fiberglass chairs have taken on a bit of water; I hope they don’t turn into mosquito-breeding tanks.

Terri Hendrix’s Guitar


Almost twenty years ago, my friend Darryl called to invite me to a concert; he said the musician was great and would be worth the drive (90 miles, one way). I turned him down, because it was in the middle of the week and I didn’t want to get home that late. Darryl, never one to take no for an answer, kept asking and asking until it was finally easier to give in.

And so it was that on that night in Nazareth, Texas, I became a fan of Terri Hendrix and her music and have followed her career ever since. Recently, she and her musical partner, the incomparable Lloyd Maines stopped by Lubbock to perform at a house concert.

(Another thing that happened at that house concert is that I was called on stage to sing the chorus of the encore song. My singing out loud in public actually violated several local ordinances, mostly dealing with nuisance noises, but I wasn’t arrested or anything. Also, I stood as far away from the mic as I could get.)

The Bottom of the Storm


Sometimes, especially when the sun’s at a low angle, the bottoms of thunderclouds look even more dramatic than the tops of them do.

What “out of business” looks like


When the voters in Levelland approved alcohol sales in the city limits, this out-on-the-highway liquor store lost its reason for existence.

The biggest plowboy


I just knew that you’d been wondering where, exactly, the biggest plowboy in Texas was located, and as luck would have it, I was able to find him for you.
