|our new town center|
In the olden days, when the Cause was living memory, the trains went to Hillsboro and business flourished in the center of town. Then things changed. Passenger rail went out of style as people took to the highways in their motors and business moved out of town, leaving it a hollowed out, semi-derelict wreck.

But look, all's not lost! We have a new town center, sprung up strip mall style on either bank of I35. That's going out of business too.
|the old station, now a "visitors bureau" whatever that is.|
I like to escape our merry little rural dystopia by driving out of town a short way to see my horse and go for a ride, preferably at great speed.
Powerful therapy and, you never know, maybe a useful skill.
Happy Feast of St. Andrew.
