Book Review: Coronado's Children

I finished my first read-through of storyteller and folklorist J. Frank Dobie’s Coronado’s Children around mid-February and enjoyed it. I posted a review on another site but began a re-read of the first fourteen stories covering the Lost San Saba Mine to facilitate an on-going discussion relating to the historical James ‘Jim’ Bowie, his search for the San Saba, and the subsequent, and some say same find that came to also be known as the Bowie treasure mine. 336 more words

Vintage Signs

This vintage HOBO Kidney and Bladder Remedy sign is the neatest thing I’ve found lately. It’s from Singer, Louisiana dated 1917. These old advertising signs are getting harder and harder to find.
