My father, Liston Posey was born in
. When he was 8 - 12 years old, he climbed to the top of the bell tower and stood on the two criss-crossed pieces of iron,at the very top, and laughed. Been there more than a few times myself, and it scared me into a cold sweat to hear that story. I looked at the steps that went all the way up the bell tower one time and knew that my daddy was nuts when he did it.
I live about two miles from
. I've been to numerous parties there -- it's a great place to go and drink some beer.
is a great city. It may not be the most exciting place to visit, but hell that doesn't matter. It's one of the greatest cities in the world.
I lived in
for nine years. Austin is very cool, except that it's so darned hot in the summer. Check out Barton Springs pool in Zilker park, an enormous spring-fed pool, always seventy degrees, perfect for a scorching day. A music reviewer for the Austin paper once wrote "Who's playing this weekend? Ho, hum, the usual embarassment of riches." No kidding. You can find live music any night of the week. Halloween in Austin is a sight to behold, thousands of people partying downtown.
I live in Corsicana, about thirty-six miles north of
. I drove down there with a camera to photograph the old college building. Even in its present state, it is quite impressive. The building seems to be in great shape considering its age. The clock tower is on the ground and is in very bad shape. Hope someone is able to restore it before the elements take an irreversible toll on it. It was worth the drive and time invested on that March day.
Be prepared to have your deodorant handy! Walking around
in the summer is like being in a steamroom. I've never perspired so much in my entire life!
