Alea Jacta Est …

… as Gaius Julius Caesar is supposed to have said. For us it means that we have finally decided to move to the Texas Hill Country. When we were there from Monday to Thursday this week, looking for property, we really found a place we’d really like [in Cain City near Fredericksburg] and now we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed that we’ll be able to manage to sell some of our property here quickly enough so that we can can buy that place without someone else snatching it away from us.

  1. That’s such a nice offer. Thanks! 🙂

    • Hi Russel,
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really liked that video: thanks for that link, too. And yes, Waylon and Willie and the boys: those were the times, and Luckenbach’s the place to be. Well, if our plans come to fruit, we’ll be only 4 miles from Luckenbach. Keep your fingers crossed.
      Have a good one,

      • Hopefully I’ll be invited to the housewarming margarita party……………lol

        • Should we really get our dream home [], you’ll be invited, sure! 😉 But what about a good German beer instead of a margarita? You might gag on my margaritas, I’m afraid. 😉
          Btw, if things come to pass, we might have need of one of your Texas colleagues, mightn’t we?

          • There is no such thing as a bad margarita.

            I’m somewhere between my Coors Light days and those German beer days to come, if they ever do. I’m in my ale days (Karl Strauss, Stone, etc.).

  2. I have always thought it so funny that there are so many “cities” in Texas that are not cities at all, like Cain City.

    Kerrville is the site of my first experience with broken bones. Broke my thumb over there when I was 13.

    • Hi Russel,
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Very true. Btw, that applies to rivers, too, to my mind. What is sometimes called a river here would just be a “Bach” – which I’d translate as “creek” – in Germany.
      Cain City, btw, is sometimes, as is Helena close to here, called a “ghost city”, I think. But it has an interesting history.
      So you had your first broken bone in Kerrville. Did you live there?
      Have a good one,

      • No. I was living in Kingsville with my wise old grandmother. My third oldest uncle had some land in Kerrville at the time and he used to take his family up there quite often to get away and relax. I got to go one time, and that was the time. He never took me again.

  3. Love the Texas hill country! Good luck selling your house!

    • Hi Sabrina,
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Thanks for your good wishes. Keep your fingers crossed. If we can manage to get the property we have set our hearts on, we’ll have a guest house, too. In that case, you’d be “herzlich willkommen”!
      Have a good one,

I'd really love to hear from y'alls!
