funny, thats what i was thinking but didn't want to offend anyone, don't care to go back even tho we used to have friends thereYeah, probably going to catch flack for saying this but Matamoros is not a very friendly nor clean border town. Did like the fact that the liquor store was just across the bridge though! the street urchins are a bit much there also.
we only went over during the daytime and with the friend in his car, don't know if ernie is still in brownsville or not he was born in mexico and raised in brownsville, he said he was spanish, his momma said she was mexican, she was a hoot and also a good cookThe one and only time I went into Mexico it was through Brownsville and into Matamoros. You're spot on with the unfriendly, not very clean town. And all the street kids, wow, never seen so much begging.
But it was funny, my roommate and I ran into some other people (ones we didn't know) from our own town down there and we had a good time together at a local establishment The downside was going back to Brownsville in the dark and trying to remember where we had parked the car. That part was a bit scary, there were a lot of people hanging out on porches and the street and they seemed to think it was funny yelling in Spanish and throwing beer cans at us.
There's still some winter left Michelle, that block heater could still come in handy. Glad your day is going to be a bit warmer!Getting a cab put on my tractor. They're supposed to be picking it up this morning. There is supposed to be a block heater, so they're going to install it no charge.
Of course they wait until today to pick it up. It's warm enough for me to get it started & about 5" of snow fell overnight with another 6" expected.
