I suppose I am drawn to the demolition of buildings and structures around town. Down the street from our house, another Gas station/Convenience store is being demolished to make way for something new and better.
I guess even Beer & Wine or State Inspections couldn’t save this one.
I’m pretty sure this wont happen in this building anyway!
A few days ago we took an unexpected trip to South Texas. It was a lengthy trip in hours so we spent the night. While the others were getting ready, I took a stroll to the car wash next door. Funny what you can find when casually walking around.
In my opinion, the best cigarettes are the ones that can’t be smoked.
Even though I stand on my driveway most every day and know what is there, the fog adds a little suspicion.
Today was an exceptionally foggy day, especially for Texas. The weather man said some places had zero miles visibility. I could’t help but grab my camera. Even though I could hear people, I couldn’t see anyone. I could barely make out the trees.
Those trees are about the length of a football from the end of our driveway.
I’m thinking this may be my last post of the mall for a while. I try to stop by at least once a week to see the progress. I was hoping I could have seen them tearing down the Sears sign, but too late, its already in the piles of tin steel and concrete.
Here is a panoramic shot from the raised parking lot to the east. I’m just a little too far away.
SEArS. The letters on the Sears end of the mall have been hanging for a while before the mall actually closed. I stopped by when you could still go inside the mall and could not resist to shoot the sign.

It wont be dangling much longer as the demo crew has started on that section of the mall.

Its kind of funny the barricade is still there. We sure don’t want that letter to fall on anyone!
