Exploring North Texas

Well, here we are in Wichita Falls, a nice place of 100,000 people located near the Red River about 90 miles northwest of Fort Worth.  The adjustment to a new job and a new culture is definitely a challenge, but it is one that I want to take on with relish.  I now work as a librarian for the Wichita Falls Public Library and am eager to learn the ins and outs of circulation, reference and acquisitions, something that I learned little of in my previous position.

The weather here is deceptively warm for this time of year from what they tell me.  However, that will change in short order as a storm is coming in tonight.   We did our first explorations of the surrounding area since we settle down by going to Fort Richardson near Jacksboro and Lake Arrowhead which is south of town.    There is a lot of history here and it is good that I love subjects like the Old West and the history of Native Americans.  We hope to explore more soon, but with the weather being cold, it might take us a while to do extensive traveling.

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!
