Tiny Weathered Homes

I’m so curious to know the history of these homes at the intersection of North 8th & Ash Street.

They're tiny, weathered clapboard structures and look like they came out of a kit for “abbreviated house” or something.

Extra Friday Night Lights

The Fair amusement park rides shine beyond the field during a Fall high school football game. The visiting band (Lubbock High) takes the field at half-time. My favorite part of the game? Nachos and a pickle.

Abilene Heat

The "summer" of 2011. Which started in April and continues into October. Although at this point 88 degrees fahrenheit is FIFTY degrees cooler than some of those record-busting days.

These men were building a sidewalk along Rebecca Lane. I admired and was awed by the one guy's extra-large-brimmed cowboy hat and the extra shade it provided. I also saw him wetting down the hat under faucet attached to a work truck. How drought-smart is that?!
