The new 55 miles of barrier are being called 'pedestrian fencing'. Semantics essentially not to call it a wall. It will cut into Starr county and land that people have owned for generations.
Reading in on what the new funding bill allows and doesn't allow: After interventions from @RepCuellar #LaLomita chapel will be exempted from any barrier as well as the National Butterfly Center and Bentsen state park.
That all said, at least I don’t have to listen to Kenny G in my house.
Note to self, next year send myself extravagant bouquet. That said, my husband picked up my new glasses at the optometrist so that’s love.
Meanwhile, when your colleague gets mystery flowers and a) you are dying to know who sent them and b) you note your lack of flowers and c) married vs single #ValentinesDay2019
