Remember the Alamo!


Here I am in front of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas. The defenders of the Alamo lost to the invading army, but they held until the last man died. The moral of Remember the Alamo is one of defending your beliefs to the death. San Antonio is a neat city. Hotels, restaurants and shops line the circular canal of the River Walk. South of the city along the river you can tour a trail of Spanish Missions dating back to early colonial days. The colonial governors’ house and Mexican market are within walking distance of the River Walk area. World class Mexican food and margaritas, what a wonderful city! Remember the Alamo!

  1. It's no good if everyone dies defending their beliefs now is it?

  3. Love the river walk. Did you go to the dualing piano bar across from the Hyatt? It's kind of a beer wastland, not a good IPA insight anywhere.

    And as for the Democrat thing...don't blame me, I voted for Bill and Opus again.

  4. I have a huge rosary from the Alamo, made out of acorns. The best part about it? Someone miscounted and one of the decades only has 9 acorns. ;)

    I love it.

  5. I'm back again... do you know what was on tv last night? Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. :) Unfortunately I fell asleep before I found out if he found his bicycle in the basement of the Alamo.

  7. LOL... nope Travel, it doesn't. Pee Wee doesn't KNOW this though and travels all the way there and sits through a very long tour of the Alamo just to find out there IS no basement and the gypsy woman lied to him!
