Real estate in the San Antonio metro area, the foothills of the Texas Hill Country, and on the Guadalupe River. My market area includes the northern half of San Antonio (Alamo Heights, Fort Sam Houston, Shavano Park, Hollywood Park, and Stone Oak) and northeast (Randolph AFB, Universal City, Windcrest, Schertz, and Cibolo) to New Braunfels, Seguin, and Canyon Lake, including Bexar, Guadalupe, and Comal Counties. My blog also covers photography; houses and homes; investments and rental properties; pets and wildlife; birds, butterflies, and flowers in my organic garden; travel; fun stuff; and whatever else takes my fancy.

"I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could." That's an old saying about people moving to Texas.

I made two Cibolo families homeless this morning before I even had my coffee. I knocked down two wasps' nests with water from the hose first thing this morning because supposedly they can't see very well, although by the time I got into the back yard the sun was up.
