Gothic zodiac. Looks like some else is using my idea of fishing lure for an earring, see the Pisces?

Pa Wetzel made a donation of some sort to SWT. San Marcos. “What should we do in San Marcos?”

Valentino’s on the Square. Great pizza. Even better than Austin Pizza’s Jalapeno and Anchovy (delivered to Shady Acres), there’s that special Valentino’s tomato, bacon & ranch dressing pizza. Excellent chow in a sleazy dive of a pizza parlor.
