  1. As a retired Librarian with 30.years experience, thank you for posting this. I retired 8 years ago and stayed in Southwest Texas. My wife now deceased was a San Antonio native.

    1. You're welcome. San Antonio is one of my favorite cities, mainly because of its rich history and Tex-Mex culture.
