The Old Hometown
Judy and I spent last weekend in my hometown of Mexia, Texas, where we visited some old friends and checked out the downtown area, which looks a little like a bombed-out German town after WWII. The area out around the Super Wal-Mart is thriving, however. I took some pictures, of course. This one is of the back of the building that once housed Eubanks Hardware, a thriving business for many years. You can see the ghostly painted sign that shows the name of an even earlier business that inhabited the building, which is now vacant, like many of those downtown, at least the ones that haven't fallen down or been demolished.
