Very cool. With all the times I’ve been there, I don’t know how I missed that!

I think we need a little side trip to San Antonio next June...maybe to Shilo’s! :) Don’t you?

It is the only VFW I have seen that is open to public use.

It could be a good place to BBQ on the river after a a Texas Cowboy Memorial Shoot.

Sounds like a good planning suggestion!

Wish it didn’t take soooo long to drive that way for the shoots.:(

I could live in a house that looks like that.

Porch swing NOT optional. Must have! :)

Aloha again Night Owl! ((HUGS))

Half sun and half drizzle (which is called Hilo sunshine).

Out with my son yesterday for a little target practice and chats; it's amazing how many things one can talk about on an outing like that.
