Rube Burrow Robbed A Texas & Pacific Train ...

near the Dudley Domicile over 100 years ago. The Mary's Creek Bridge was the site of multiple train robberies back in the late 1800's. A map from 1895 shows the location as "Train Robbers Bridge."  The head of the gang was captured some time later and jailed. He tried to escape prior to trial and that did not end well for him as you can see in the last photo!

Lizzie Took This Cool Picture Of A Duck In A Tree ...

at her Grandmothers house in East TX. She lives in the middle of town several miles from Lake Palestine. Lizzie said they had a bad storm last night. This lone duck must have gotten lost!

Update. Had one of my fb friends ID the Duck for me. It is a Black Bellied Whistling Duck. From what Dudley can tell that is rare to see one of that species in East TX!

Frank And Some Friends Took Their Kayaks To The Brazos River ...

early this morning. They launched at the historic Stone Bridge on Hwy 16, The Sportsmans Highway. They paddled and fished downstream for a few miles to the Schoolhouse Mountain area. Frank caught a couple of nice Bass and four or five Bluegill. The biggest was on his ultralight spinning rod and reel throwing a purple and white Yozuri Pins Minnow. It was a great day on the river.
