PASO, TEXSAS TRIP

OUR RECENT TRIP TO EL PASO WE WENT TO ROSA’S CANTINA NEAR THE RIO GRANDE RIVER ONLY TO FIND IT ALL CLOSED UP.  BEEN GOING THERE FOR MANY YEARS EACH TRIP TO THE CITY. IS WHERE MARTY ROBBINS  WROTE “EL PASO CITY”.

WE WOULD STAY AWHILE AND PLAY HIS OLD SONGS ON THE JUKE BOX.

IT IS LOCATED NEAR THE SUNLAND HORSE RACING TRACK OFF MESA ST. IN N.W. PART OF EL PASO.

I THINK I TOOK TOMMY SNOW THERE ONE TIME WE WERE ON THE SAME FLIGHT TOGETHER.

COMING BACK TO TEXAS WE STAYED THE LAST NIGHT IN ABILENE AND ATE AT A STEAK HOUSE WHERE WE MET DON WHITWORTH FOR A NICE VISIT.  HIS WIFE WAS SICK AT THE TIME AND NOT COME WITH HIM.   SHE DIED SOON AFTER THAT.  IT WAS THE LAST TIME WE EVER SEEN DON AS HE DIED IN ABILENE LATER ON.
