Sunday Drive - Buchanan Home

(click on photo to enlarge)

Cruising along on Sunday's drive. This is the way my daughter Ashlyn gets to her boyfriend's house, also known as her second home. I didn't know of this backway and she was correct, it's my kind of road! I could live here, if only my kids wouldn't complain about changing schools ;)

Also, if you are interested in this sort of thing, want to share a little genealogy with you! My husband's ancestor, Daniel Cloud fought at The Alamo. A friend of mine was just there over the weekend and brought a pamphlet home to me with a quote from Daniel Cloud! You can see it HERE on my genealogy blog! How exciting!

  3. That's one that I haven't seen, nice house.
    Good find on the ancestor, I recently found a magazine article on one of mine, it is amazing what is out there and nobody in the family knew.

  12. we just visited the Alamo - i know this totally has nothing to do with what i am going to tell ya ..but if you ever visited be prepared to not be allowed to take pics inside the ALAMO ... such a letdown for me ... i was super sad over that ... ruined my whole trip there. GRR .. me not happy about that. sad face. ) :

    on a happy note you can take pics outside at the Alamo ... but still not totally happy. at least you can take pics in the (at) OTHER MISSIONS in Texas. Happy Note. ( :
