I'm in San Antonio on a work trip. During a slow period this morning I went for a walk. My hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Alamo. I've been to the Alamo before and wasn't overly impressed with the exhibit. But I needed to get a gift for Ragamuffin who is feeding the beasties while I'm away. Turns out Thursday was the anniversary of the battle of the Alamo and this weekend there are big festivities going on. The plaza was swamped with cowboys and Santa Ana's troops getting ready to do a big reenactment.
