regarding these economic times

I bring you this photo today due to my saddened state over the economy.

About the photo: I took this photo on a trip to Texas. We were driving along the highway in the middle of nowhere and saw a sign for a Billy The Kid Museum. We pulled up to this old, run down house-type structure that was painted bright red with weird stuff all around it. It was one of those pay places that you insert money into a box under the honor system and then let yourself in. I took a bunch of photos outside- no one in sight. We put money in the box and the door was locked! We never got inside, but just being in this place was worth it- it was a place that kind of creeped me out, but in an exciting way.

A few months later Skip drove through the same area in Texas and the entire thing was gone! No remnant's, no traces that anything had ever been there.

A short word on the state of things: Yesterday I heard the news that another great magazine has folded. It seems like all of my favorite things are disappearing- businesses, magazines, etc. It's important to remember that even though we are all struggling financially, to continue to spend money, especially at our favoirte local establishments and national small businesses.

*If you're interested in seeing more photos from the Billy The Kid Museum, let me know and I will post them!
