A Walking in Nature

I found a place to walk near my house.

Medina River Nature Area in San Antonio, Texas.

I went there after work and walked the 1.6 mile trail. I had no idea where it would take me. I just followed the trail.

I ain’t lying Craig, I was a little lost and thick in the middle of poison ivy and snakes. But I kept going.

48 minutes +5,000 steps. Here was my view on my walk.

I definitely will be going back there for a walk again.


A Beautiful Day For A Walk

Boy, it’s been a day for me today. I got some news that I was not quite expecting. It took my breath away and I felt like a deer caught in the headlights.

So in the afternoon, I was trying to find a new place to do my walking. I stopped by a place that I’ve passed many times, Mission San José in San Antonio, Texas. It’s my 2nd Mission out of the 5 that are in San Antonio.

It was hot out, but it was so beautiful and peaceful there, I didn’t mind at all. I spent a hour there just walking the grounds. I definitely will be going back there to do more of my walks. It was just what I needed after the morning I had.

Here are some pictures I took. And if you see a picture on the Wikipedia site, you will see a picture like the one I took. I promise the one on here is one that I took.

Now, I have to visit the other three missions.

One Shining Moment

I’m a little late posting this. But I try to post “One Shining Moment” by Luther Vandross on my blog every year.

Here is the 2018 version of the NCAA Men’s Basketball March Madness.

Barry Manilow in Concert

Here’s another concert to check of my Concert Bucket List.

He was playing at The Majestic Theater in San Antonio tonight.

I wasn’t too sure if I wanted to spend the money in a ticket to see him. But I thought, what the heck? I’ve never seen him and I’ve always liked his music. I mean, how could you not love “Copacabana?”

Here are some pictures from the concert.

A Night With Janis Joplin

Another great shpow at The Tobin Center in San Antonio.

“A Night With Janis Joplin.”

The show featured Kelly McIntyre as Janis Joplin and she was amazing!

Some of the songs from the show were:

“Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime.”

The show’s Joplin interjects the songs with stories about her life, and also showcases some of the singers who influenced her, including Bessie Smith, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Odetta.

I had no idea what to expect. I’m a fan of her music and know a little about her. But I learned so much more about her, her life and her music.

I’m so glad I got again tickets to see some fabulous shows at one of my favorite places to see shows… The Tobin Center.

Till the next show.

Side Note:

Janis Joplin was born on January 19, 1943, in Port Arthur, Texas, and died of a heroin overdose a mere 27 years later on October 4, 1970, in Los Angeles, California. But, in that all too brief interim, she managed to pack a helluva lot of living and became one of the biggest female rock stars of her time.

Random Pictures

Here are some random pictures that I’ve taken lately.

Went to Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth for the NASCAR race.

Love taking pictures of the mileage on my car… 020202.

One of my favorite places in San Antonio, The Tobin Center.

Downtown San Antonio.

Need to top last Christmas Texas Boil this year.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

This afternoon, I went to The Tobin Center to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch. 

Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a 1998 musical about a fictional rock and roll band fronted by an East German genderqueer singer.

The show starred,  Tony and Olivier Award-nominated Euan Morton and Hannah Corneau.

The show was amazing. The music, the acting, the set and the band was amazing. 

I didn’t know anything about the play and I just sat in wonder wayching everything. 

One of my favorite things about the show was the bass player, Matt Duncan (the one with the green hair.)

He was to cool place not the bass and singing background. 

I was going back and forth on if I wanted to see this show, but I finally defended to buy a ticket. And I’m so glad I did. 

I really want to see it again, just to catch what I missed.

So, I’ve already downloaded the Broadway soundtrack. Saw a couple of YouTube videos.

Now, I have to pget class the next show I’m going to see.
