Sorry about West Texas. I drove through that place a couple
of years back going from Taos to San Antonio. Not a fun place.
The teachers you mention in Garden City are most likely the ones
who impressed me when KAEA had a conference there. Lots of very
impressive cardboard sculpture was what impressed me the most.
I stole some good ideas that time. Good luck on getting out of Texas.
