A slice of Germany in the Texas hill country
Fredericksburg has a reputation within Texas as a place to escape.
I spent most of the day relaxing, except for laundry and other chores.
The Laundromat had two things that really showed where I am.
Like most, it had a few TVs on for people to watch while waiting.
In most parts of the country, they show soaps.
Here, they showed football highlights.
Not just any highlights either, HIGH SCHOOL football highlights.
The other item was an editorial in the local paper.
The long drought in the state has caused problems for local wildlife by reducing the food supply.
The editorial stated that the logical solution was to increase the length of hunting season this year!
Welcome to Texas.
