Vendors won't ship to your PO Box? Here's how to solve that.

My primary mailing address is my PO Box at a US Post Office. Any mail or packages I receive are safe from thieves, and if anything is bigger than my usual box, the post office simply puts the oversized item(s) into a larger, locked postal box for me. But I have run into problems sometime with vendor...

Re: No star in upper right corner of your DL? Problems after 10/1/2020.

RoyGBiv: You are welcome. I'm the OP, and I thought this issue might be of help to one and all. To many people, reading hardcopy newspapers and periodicals may be "old school", but I just never know what I'll find when I turn the pages. Stumbling upon this in the DMN of 7/21/19 was opportune. oorah:...

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Langtry, TX

I have visited here since it's just a short jog off US 90. If you leave the Roy Bean visitor center, it's only a few blocks down to the Rio Grande, past tumbledown abandoned houses, and some where people live, but that also don't look too good. Here's something I've always wondered about. In the mov...

Re: DFW Way Out West Breakfast

This thread did not have a comment from June 23. I totally missed this one, and went went with the original "Fort Worth side of town" thread. When no one posted on the other one, I stated on 7/19/19 that we should meet at Manny's on 7/20/19, which did happen. We had 3 in attendance: hackjob, diesel4...

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Round Rock, TX

Pflugerville is more or less between Round Rock and Austin, so its unofficial slogan is "Pfluergerville - Between a rock and a weird place."

"Pfluger" is German for "plowman", or farmer, as the initial German settlers were.

Re: Dentist and Nitrus Oxide



Speaking of dentists and thread drift (I'm guilty as charged). Have some humor from "The Little Shop of Horrors". There's even a .38 snubbie in the clip.

Bill Murray may just out macho you all. :-)

Re: Short trip ideas

http://www.luckenbachtexas.com/home.htm Another site you might like would Luckenbach, Texas, site of the famous song. It is close to Fredericksburg also. You take US 290 to FM 1376. I believe there's a Shell gas station/c-store on the corner of 290/1376, and then it's only a few miles to the venue....

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Falfurrias, TX

If you drive northbound on US 281, it is 75 miles from McAllen to Falfurias. What you will have to stop for is one of those large federal facilities run by Border Patrol, ICE, or some such, in Falfurrias. All traffic must pull over in what essentially is a giant carport, since it has to be high enou...
