It's a Monday

Yep, it's a Monday, and we're back to work after spending a few days on Galveston Island. We've called Crockett our home for 21 years now, having grown up in Pasadena, Texas. And I have to say, man, am I glad to be back home!

The traffic in and around the Houston area truly amazes me. It doesn't matter what time it is day or night or what day of the week you are travelling, there is a constant flow of traffic. I often ask my wife, "Where in the world are all these folks going?" All it takes is a trip to Houston or one of Texas' other 'big cities' and you know what I mean. It truly is a blessing to live and work in a small town, where you can be anywhere you need to in just a few minutes or so.

You may not know this but Crockett, Texas was one of the first cities in the nation to have a loop constructed around the city. We had our Loop 304 even before Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth or San Antonio had theirs! That's pretty neat!

And for many years (at least the twenty odd ones we've been here), Crockett has only had one stoplight (technically there are actually two stoplights at the intersection). That's right, the traffic light on Loop 304 in front of Wal-Mart is the second traffic light. Now some of you reading this will probably be saying to yourself, "Why would anyone want to live in a town with one stoplight?" Well, not that's its any big secret but the fact that we don't have bumper-to-bumper traffic is just another reason why I Love Crockett, Texas!
