Small town...

Today, we scoped out Red Rock, Texas, as this is where I'll be taking my combat medical classes in December. I'll be driving 12o miles round trip each day. I'm glad we made this trip, as it's a SMALL town. Don't blink, or you'll miss it. I LOVED the old general store. I sure do miss those old mom and pop stores! This store is more than a hundred years old, the old town of Red Rock was settled in the 1700's.





Less than 15 miles from Lockhart, we couldn't help but take advantage again of the Texas Barbecue belt...

For lunch, we stopped at Kruez Market for barbecue.
Meat is ordered in the smoke room.

No plates. Here in the barbecue belt, meals are served on paper. The brisket and beans were incredible. Ssssshhh... although I enjoyed the food here, the customer service at Black's Barbecue is much better (the owner made a point of introducing himself and shaking our hands.)
At Kruez Market, they don't take credit/debit cards. CASH ONLY. Major inconvenience. Their cash machine charges $1.75 for transactions. Ouch.

That store made me miss shopping at Barbers Cash store down at the farm.. you can find so many neat things at those places.

Did you save me a bite of that BBQ?

I just love looking around at old time stores; it's so much fun looking at the buildings and thinking about how it looked when the building was new.

P.S. I'm hungry!!!

Just stumbled on here and wanted to tell you I enjoyed reading your blog. I used to live in Austin and Fredericksburg..reading your blog brings back great memories. I miss the weather in Texas and the bbq! My dad used to work in a bbq place in Fredericksburg, that was really good stuff! I'll be back.
