Even though our country isn’t perfect, I never fail to feel a sense of pride when I see our US flag blowing in the wind.     I haven’t been around Active Rain for about a year.   However when I saw the June contest was about Old Glory, I knew that I needed to make time to come back to Active Rain & to participate.   I have not been blogging much on Active Rain because I have been trying to rebuild my real estate business from scratch in  Corpus Christi, TX, a coastal city in South Texas.   As I looked through my pictures for flags, I was surprised to discover that the very first picture I took in Corpus Christi was at twilight.  I was trying to take a picture of the American flags that were lining Ocean Drive.    My first trip to Corpus Christi, TX was on November 10, 2020.   That was t...

On a Monday or Saturday afternoon, you  probably don't want to find yourself stuck behind Pete in the line at the grocery store.    Pete is a broad shouldered  cowboy that looks like he could be a bouncer at a night club.    Although Pete has owned a gym, he has never owned a restaurant.   However, he is certainly capable of planning, shopping and preparing home cooked meals that can be served on the tailgate of his truck.    The day before I met him, his basket would have been full of enough groceries to feed over 100 people fajita salads.  (He called them chiplote salads but most of his guests did not know what a chip lots salad was.)     His basket was filled  with chicken and pork, seasonings, tortillas, lettuce, shredded cheese, onions, big tubs of sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, chi...
