When I see these old kind of buildings I'd like to know more about their history... be able to view some old photographs, etc. This one, a former grocery, now houses an antique store - and is located in downtown Quinlan... about 15 miles north of Terrell.

looking for halloween ideas?
Jim and I went out driving on some backroads near Terrell today looking for cool barn photos... On one back road, after seeing several deer, a wild feral hog ran down the side of the road and then crossed in front of our car!
exciting Sunday afternoons in Texas!

tis the season and if you are in a position to donate, the Susan G Komen 3 day walk for the cure is certainly a worthy cause.
the link here is to the team participating at my work, USA Mobility. And honestly, anyone who would attempt to walk 20 miles a day for 3 days in a row deserves the utmost support!

Well, I shaved 15 seconds off my best time for a new personal record! I finished the Tyler Rose 5k, running the 3.1 miles in 31 minutes and 38 seconds - 10th in my age group!
Quite happy with those results, considering all the hills I had to run on this course. I suppose I should practice more on hills - but I like the relatively flat course we have to run on here in Terrell =)

I still haven't had a chance to go thru the photos from the football game last night... i took a long nap after i got home from the 5k and wine tasting. and tasting. and tasting. =)
I matched my best time pretty much, which I'm happy with. I finished the 3.1 mile (5k) course in 31:56 according to the results. My best time is 31:53, so within 3 secs =)
I'll have the football photos edited and posted over on the facebook page sometime tomorrow.
