    I used to live there, now it's a ruin...

    Buckholts, Texas - The Line Shack Restaurant - Our Ruins

    Seriously, that is... A FREAKING MAZING to see. I mean, we had a restaurant/bar, a garage and living area, and now it's... its dead. **** me.

    Sad when this happens, I see it all the time when I go back to Montana. A lot of my childhood haunts are now nothing but wasting away buildings or cleared empty lots. Sucks, because as you get older the memories are hard enough to keep fresh without losing the structures.

    If my childhood community ceased to exist, I'd re-examine its teachings.

    The first house I ever bought had a weed infested yard. I worked and worked on that yard. Had a mail order of special grass plugs to turn that yard into a golf course.

    I moved on and it was looking great. Neighbors complimented me on it.

    Years went by and I drove by to see how it was doing. The new owners had brought gravel in and covered the front yard to make a parking spot for his pickup.

    Good grief if he had to walk more than 5 steps to the front door.

    Pissed me off.

    And you blamed the NRA, of course

    Sad to see places not taken care of or in ruin. Reason why I try to never drive past places I used to live/own.

    Yeah well Bozeman has always had a lot going for it even in the 1970's.
    I almost got hired at a radio station back there.
