Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- Red roofed Jack-in-the-Box in San Antonio, 36 years ago
We drove to San Antonio that evening in my T-Bird. It had gone over 120 MPH getting to the wedding but we drove sensibly on the way over.
We couldn't get our favorite hotel the wedding night so we had to settle for the Hilton. About midnight, I carried Mrs. Jim across the threshold.
We had breakfast the next morning at this Jack-in-the-Box which was across the street from our hotel on the river. It did not have a drive-though. The hotel was on the famous San Antonio Riverwalk (link 1)(link 2)(The San Antonio River Walk Photo Gallery) .
We changed hotels the next morning, our favorite was the La Mansión in the middle part of the river.
Our drive home Monday was nice. I had to go to school that evening so we didn't ...
Mary is in charge there, you can post your own if you wish.
I've always wanted to go to San Antonio. Sounds like a beautiful place with the river running through it!
Happy Ruby Tuesday.
Looks like you and Mrs. Jim had a great honeymoon in San Antonio. TF and I went to Galveston for our honeymoon and we stayed at the Galvez. We got married on a Friday night and had the weekend for our honeymoon...TF had to be back to work on Tuesday morning, so our honeymoon was short and sweet.
Happy Anniversary to you and Mrs. Jim!
I haven't seen a Jack-in-the-Box in years.
I liked your comment a couple of posts down "a vacation from our retirement life." I just remarked to my husband on President's Day that with retirement we didn't get holidays anymore. :)
My RT post is at Carletta’s Captures my new photoblog.
Do you mean it about the car I posted that the guy is traveling incognito? I couldn't tell if you were kidding me or not...
Laura - I will be checking your RT soon. (I hope, my scedule may not allow me to see everyone's) Thank you.
Ivon, ours does too, 50¢ discount for seniors. The Whataburgers have free drinks for seniors but no Dollar Meal.
Thank you Jeanette.
Lucy, our honeymoon was short and sweet also. We were married Saturday and I had to go to class Monday night. And San Antonio is a couple of hours longer travel than Galveston. Mrs. Jim was working in Galveston then, we sure did not want to go there.
Thank You Audrey. =)
Carletta, I am glad I could be of help (Dr. Jim likes to do that helping bit). Dr. Jim:
http://jimmiehov8.blogspot.com/ We have a lot of Jack-in-the-Boxes around here. 200 Googled returns for Houston and near came up just now.
Thank you Doug, Mrs. Jim is an LSU Tiger. Nothing rosey about her, she is purple through and through.
Mary, I am sorry. Yes, I was "playing with words." Remember, dear blog readers, I don't believe lying is a sin unless it is malicious or hurts someone.
I try to paint with words a little too.
Your honeymoon pictures in red are wonderful.
Bet you missed in planning since you landed on Hilton!!
I double clicked your wedding picture.
It's just so honest and nice. The two of you holding hands, you firm and proud, Mrs. Jim like the Lily she still is.
You still are quite a couple.
I like teach Mary going gently on me.
It encourages me to keep on on the level I am, and in due time moving upwards.
I've changed from cellphone to powershot G9, but I still use the automatic..
My teacher husband did not say much yesterday, but he at least did not stop me from uploading.
I think Paul says something about the husbands going nicely with their women.
The pair of us (Paul and I) do agree on that theme.
Happy, happy anniversary to Mrs. Jim and you,
Congrats on your 36th anniversary!
Happy belated Ruby Tuesday.
