    On Safari in Texas

    Well, not in the sense most would think.

    I am working at a new restaurant my wife and her family opened here in Dilley Tx. It's a South African style food, safari themed restaurant. They opened the first week of January.
    I am getting pretty good at making fries, lol.
    I have also made some contacts with customers here that own large hunting ranches, and that Malay open up more hunting adventures for me in the future. From talking to them, it seems very few people hunt with a handgun.
    I'd like to share some pics with you my friends here, as I'm quite proud of my wife and family who have worked so hard, and are still sacrificing so much to realize their American dream.
    All of the artwork on the walls was painted by my father in law.

    Sounds fun!

    Is Dilley located anywhere near Arlington? I might have to pop in when I go to visit my mom!

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Fantastic story! You have every right to be proud of them - starting a business is a very difficult and brave thing to do.

    Good luck with your trip!

    Great to hear, Next time I visit my brother I'll have to stop by
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    That would be bad news for the cartels.
