I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Urban poetry

I realize that, by some standards, Jacksboro, Texas (population 4511, as of 2010) does not qualify as "urban."

But I pulled over here to take this picture, before turning on to Texas 199 and continuing on my merry way to Fort Worth and DFW and home, because I was charmed by the idea of a drugstore that advertises both a soda fountain and a fax machine -- artifacts of two very different eras.

Also, by the way, Texas Department of Transportation? That road sign there? Great idea. Very handy. You could use a lot more of them.
