In this post: Texas rocks, John Wayne stinks.
While I hang around waiting for Sam to wake up I just read an article on CNN Money about cities where home prices are hitting new highs. Although home values in most markets nationwide are still down about 13% from their pre-recession peaks, housing in seven major cities has recovered — and then some, according to Zillow. And, of the seven cities on the list, FOUR ARE RIGHT HERE IN THE LONE STAR STATE: Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin. Holy crap, y’all!
Here’s an update from our Still Fighting Through the Backlog of Cheesy Old John Wayne Westerns department. Last night Sam and I sat through Ride Him, Cowboy (1932), a real stinkeroo co-starring Duke the Miracle Horse. (The horse was much better in this film than Wayne and actually had a more convincing part.)
