Taking Mouse for a walk 26 by phrostie Taking Mouse for a walk 26 by phrostie
I took my new bike, Mouse, out to stretch a bit a few days ago. It ended up being a nice run down the Texas Fort Trail (HWY 180).

Not everything came out the way I wanted, but I'll post a few.

Mouse in front of one of the buildings where they've rebuilt part of the Flats. The town was down the hill from the fort.

Enjoy

at one time it was.

I had to sell the bike. my son needed a car.

btw, www.fortgriffin.org/id8.html [link]

and

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Griffin [link]

By 1870, a very rough town called "The Flat" sprang up just north of Fort Griffin, which eventually became a stop off point for cattle drives headed north to Dodge City, Kansas. During that time, several notable characters and gunfighters of the Old West drifted through, including Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Dave Rudabaugh, and the brothers Bat and Jim Masterson. John Selman, who eventually became known for killing outlaw John Wesley Hardin, worked there and in the surrounding county as a deputy sheriff.

My dad used to say it was easier to seek forgiveness than permission.

Your dad spoiled me rotten when I was little. I wanted a swimming pool, and he went out in the yard and started digging a big hole.
