Leaving Spurs Land
The annual meeting is over and I’ll soon be off to the airport to catch a flight back to Oklahoma City.
Typically I meet other Oklahomans who are also making their way back from the meeting.
I have one personal regret: I didn’t get to tour the Alamo.
I visited San Antonio a few years ago with my children and tried to talk them into going to the Alamo. Seaworld, the River Walk and River Center Mall captured their attention and we never did make it to the historic site.
I’ve lived in Oklahoma City most of my life, but from fourth grade through mid-way of the eighth grade my family and I lived in Euless, Arlington and Fort Worth, Texas. I got a Texas-sized dose of Lone Star state history.
Therefore the Alamo has great significance for me as a semi-Texan.
The good news is I’ll be headed back to San Antonio in the fall for the annual Religion News Writers Conference.
It’s a four-day event just for religion writers so surely, somewhere between the workshops and activities, I’ll be able to get a tour of the Alamo in.
Here’s looking forward to fall … and Go Spurs!
