  1. Thank you folks. Tropical Storm Beta got in the way of my plans, but all ended up well anyways.
  2. Rabbi

    Art Deco

    I love this!
  3. Bill has some of the best stories ever! I loved "Slicky boy" among so many others. One of the most knoweledgable and gifted car guys on the planet!
  4. Oh, I like this thread. I am happy that Eric is thinking about knives....
  5. Happy you stopped by!
  6. San Antonio has (had?) a reputation as a rough city. I dont think the statistics bear that out. Then, or now. Having said that, San Antonio damned well has bad areas. I am a street cop, I know a thing or two about crime and bad areas. As an opinion and being well traveled, places around Cleveland or Detroit or parts of a lot of other cities are far worse than the worst parts of San Antonio. Kind of like Boston, in San Antonio, I will go to the worst parts of town, in the day, to do business or eat. (stopping at night is another story...) Even in broad daylight, I would not stop in East Cleveland if I was on fire and I saw a watermain spewing forth.
  7. And Camp Bullis (which is a massive NG Camp, about 28,000 acres) and Camp Stanley, along with the Medina Annex The former Kelly AFB (now Kelly Field) is also still a quasi base with a huge military presence. There are around 100,000 military personnel in San Antonio and about 250,000 veterans.
  8. They really stand out in San Antonio....because there are very few Asians. There are very few Blacks as well. Majority Hispanic with most of the remainder being white. The town is also fairly well mixed. Sure, there is some segregation among the lower economic strata, but the well off live in mixed neighborhoods. On the north side of town, if you see a non hispanic minority, the easy bet is they are military. (San Antonio is "Military City USA" That is literally the official slogan)
  9. Well, San Antonio is far from the "richest" anything. While the area is booming, and has for a long time, wealth and wages here are pretty average. However, being the 7th largest city and about the 20th largest metro, just by sheer size, there is certainly some significant wealth here. San Antonio is overwhelmingly hispanic. The professionals, business owners, workers, cops, homeless, whatever are also mostly hispanic. Being a pretty blue collar town, the guy who owns the business often looks just like the people working there.
  10. That is what San Antonio looks like. Unshaved middle aged Hispanic male in working class clothing could be a millionaire business owner or out of work.
  11. Hahahaha, yeah, I noticed that as well.
  12. This one took me by surprise. This is In San Antonio, today about 20 minutes ago. Even if they are only letting a few in at a time....this many people are committed to getting in. This is a popular and old gun store in San Antonio. Pretty cool place but a bit pricy. (just a drive by pic I took, the line wrapped around the building)
  13. I am so sorry. Our little buddies are family.
