Emu Oil

It was Trade Days in Seguin this past weekend. Lots of crafty stuff and then I saw this vendor. How funny. Who knew emu oil had so many uses for ailments! Have you used any before??

Breakfast tacos

This old filling station has been turned into a taqueria with a drive through for quick pick up. I love the potato and egg tacos the best. Yes, there was a bit of a line but it's worth the little wait. Yum.

Pumpkins Galore

picture 049

Across from our home is the gigantic United Methodist Church and every year, they have their huge pumpkin patch set up for the entire month of October. I love looking at all the different shapes and sizes of pumpkins. Haven't had a chance to really inspect them up close yet but I will.

Last year I took the kids of a friend, set of triplets, to check out the patch. We had a blast. I was exhausted. Here are some shots of the fun you can when selecting pumpkins with young, energetic kids. Pumpkin Shopping.

Palace Theatre

Palace Theater

I was driving past the Palace Theatre yesterday when I noticed they are actually going to show a few movies this month! What a treat. The owner runs movies from time to time but I am not sure when. I wish the theatre was open always! I love the place. I am going to try to catch Rear Window, it's one of my favorites.

La Paleteria

It may finally be a little chilly here now (low 80s daytime, upper 40s night time) but I can always go for a scoop of chocolate chip mint! I never see much traffic at the shop so I sure hope they make it and stick around. There a tons of flavors and it's a really nice treat.

Smokey Joe Williams

Doesn't he cut a fine figure? This photo is not mine but I have developed quite a fondness for it after looking at it so much over the years since Mark started researching him. Smokey Joe was born and raised in little old Seguin. He became one of the greatest pitchers in baseball. He only got to play in the Negro Leagues because baseball was not integrated. Smokey Joe was born in 1886 in Seguin and died 1951 in New York. We went to Cooperstown for his induction in 1999.

Police Headquarters

This is our new police headquarters. Very nice upgrade from what they had to work with up to now. For some reason, I really like the look of the place at night. I like the lighting and the way they did the name. Very cool.

First Sunday

We go to Second Baptist Church in Seguin and on the first Sunday, there is communion. The deacons of the church help the Pastor with it and here we have the deaconesses, members and wives of the deacons. I love to see them in their white. Currently I am trying to find out the significance of the white covering they have on their heads. Someone asked me about it but I didn't know either.
