It's A to Z Monday

Q For Quarry

Here in Texas we have a zillion Rock Quarries. I thought all the rock Quarries were in Bedrock, but alas, if you look around Texas...most all of the homes are brick or rock....so it's only natural to find that the state of Texas is mostly rock solid, except in Grandma J's courtyard, which is still mud.




An example of Quarry rock because they never show you the actual Quarry



Here's a few pictures from a quarry's website in Salado, Texas....the cute little rustic tourist town across the reservoir. Looks nothing like Fred Flintstones place of employment in Bedrock!

Now, these Quarries are everywhere in the Great State of Texas...but my favorite is in San Antonio.......






Yes it is....and I want these shoes.... cuz don't ya know, I need me some spurs.

Do they swim in the quarries after they're filled with water or is that just an Ohio Valley thing?

Mental P Mama said...

I would wear those shoes every day--everywhere---like a little kid wearing their boots with their shorts.

Linda said...

They are beautiful, but I'd be in a quandary with what to do with them!

I'm trying to figure out which is more lethal. A kick from the pointed toe, or a swipe from the spur.

I have to say, those shoes scare me a little.

Deb said...

Just love the quarry photos. Hmmm...why can't you ever see the entire quarry???

Ben said...

Your discussion of quarries took an odd turn there somewhere...but, as they say, if the shoe fits...

Margaret said...

Hmmm...stilettos with spurs...Project Rodeo Runway?
