Its an interesting structure and "sculpture" indeed.  Way out here in the "High Desert" west of Marfa, Texas!

Where's Man O' Law?

Dear Readers;

Its been quite a year plus for me:

Due to family considerations I decided not to run for County Court at Law #3 in Bexar County, but you probably knew that.

I am no longer with the Comal County District Attorney's Office in New Braunfels.

I am now employed in Alpine, Texas with the 83rd District Attorney's Office which covers 4 counties, Pecos, Brewster, Presidio and Jeff Davis Counties.

I am the Border prosecutor however, I still have my primary residence in San Antonio and I live in Alpine, Texas.

All interesting.  I intend to get back to blogging again.

See you again soon,

Regards Man o' Law
