History along I-35

Bet you didn’t know that the rest area south of San Antonio had a historical marker for Robert Lee Bobbitt. Well, I didn’t either. What was interesting was that he used to be a lawyer in Laredo. Interesting how Laredo touches different lives.

As a child of paisano parents, we would stop at many, many rest areas. This one didn’t have this nifty mosaic mural of the Alamo when I was little.

As little kids, we got scabies driving through texas once – YUK – and it was most likely from a rest area. How things have changed – this one even has wi-fi.

    QF, Yes, I knew. Bobbett was in the same Rotary, Laredo Rotary Club way back then. I think he was even elected to district governor and had to give it up because of professional duties. I did a history on Laredo Rotary several years ago and documented that marker.

    Interesting. Historical markers scarcely get read by most of us.

    I myself can’t pass one by without stopping, to READ if time allows or snap a pic if schedule is tight.
