Bellestaroftexas ... Howdy. And thanks for the note. I did find your post of pictures and enjoyed them as well as the discussion. We are looking to retire back home, defined as the Hill Country, in general. We grew up in the San Marcos area but it is now Austin/San Antonio and very expensive. We like Fredericksburg .... but so does everyone else As a young man (early 60s) I worked cattle out in that area, a couple times up towards Lampasas and remember it fondly. A web search turned up what appear to reasonable real estate prices in Lampasas. As a University/Extension career man I did call the County Agricultural Agent there in town and visited with him for a while yesterday. We hope to visit sometime this summer .... it's only a 17 hour run from SC .... Any further comments/information will be appreciated.

Thank you Ma'am ... take care.

Actually, a more specific question from my boss (wife) is how is the old down town area? Hanging in, running down, undergoing revitalization? Thanks again.

THANKS again. Looking forward to getting there and having a look around. Especially an Old timey feed store ... grew up around them and I still love the smell. Have a great weekend!

I've never heard anyone else say that until now. I've always loved the smells of the old feed stores. The scent of molasses in the sweet feeds, the smell of fresh hay stored in the back (if it's that time of the year), the whole place has that distinct smell, guess just from age, feed, wooden floors, pot belly stove, all the goodies inside. Yeah, I love those old feed stores.

I know what you mean. My father is still prone to telling folks that I liked the feed store so much as a little kid because the owner of our local store would let me eat some of the horse and mule feed (heavy molasses) ... I wish I could deny it ...

The scientific literature does support the idea that some people are much more attuned/sensitive to/responsive to smell than others ... and actually has a fancy name for it ... which I can't remember.
