Down and Up

This has been a weird day, health-wise. In the morning I felt miserable. This afternoon, all is fine! And, no • I am not pregnant! I am a year shy of 70 • so don’t even think it!
We got the laundry done today, at long last. We were both down to our last bits of underwear. After that we drove to downtown San Antonio to visit the Alamo. I have always wanted to see this historic place. The entire complex is really quite small. The church façade is lovely. The interior of the church is gutted of any religious items: no pews, no altar, no baptismal font, etc. There are many visitors to this Texas icon and many of them do not look to see whether they are walking between parties being photographed.
We went to The River Walk, only a block away from the Alamo, alongside pretty San Antonio River filled with tour boats and ducks, the latter begging for food from diners at the many restaurants, most of which seem to offer only Mexican cuisine. It is a lovely area with brightly colored umbrellas over the dining tables of the restaurants.
We returned to the motel for a bit of a rest for me. We later went out for some dinner at Applebee’s. Hurrah! I was finally able to eat solid food without having any problems swallowing it. Maybe I will finally be back to my usual bratty self. As we returned to the motel, Jag spotted a Chevron station selling gasoline for $2.77 per gallon. I cannot believe I would be calling that cheap gas!
