I have failed to notify you that I am currently away from Laredo. I am not just Laredo but away from the gigantic state of Texas.
I’ve lived in Laredo a third of my life, another third in a different city and the last third in the place I call my hometown where I am visiting this week.
Even though I’ve been in Laredo since the 1990’s, to many readers I am not yet considered part of Laredo. I’d even show you pictures proving I drank the water (aka Falling in the Rio Grande & drinking it all in – yuk – another story for another time). Anyway, it doesn’t matter if I was born here or not, this is where I live and this is where I write from.
I mention this because even though I adjusted to this area, I know how hard it is to move in with no support. Every carne asada seems family oriented & when you’re not family…
Anyway, as I am surrounded by loved ones, I hope you are too. And be glad you are in sunny Laredo and don’t have these kinds of signs in front of your house:
