This afternoon we drove down to La Grange to watch the Serbin Jackrabbits community baseball team take on the Weimar Vets. The Jackrabbits won the game 11-1, and next week they’ll be playing the Shiner Clippers in the first game of the playoffs.

This week has been pretty busy and I haven’t had an awful lot of a chance to get out and take pictures… but we did manage to make it by Immanuel to document the progress on the addition. Looks like they’re getting pretty close to pouring the slab! Pretty soon, I’ll be able to get

Today’s photo drive was special… it’s also our sixth anniversary. We started with lunch at the Thorndale Meat Market… an old favorite that I’ve visiting since the summer of 2016. After that we covered roads in Milam and Williamson Counties (plus a little bit of Bell County) before returning to Giddings. Today’s subject matter seems
