Springtime brings interesting features in the landscape that is my life.
Yes, I live in a fairly large city, but right next door to us is what some might call a suburban town, but residents know that it is unique, with its own special characteristics.
Clovis has under 100,000 inhabitants (barely), and has grown steadily since I’ve lived nearby. A few years ago, I actually lived within the city limits and enjoyed the antique malls in Old Town Clovis.
Another aspect to Clovis is the annual rodeo, with its preamble of Big Hat Days.
This past weekend was the rodeo, and as I wended my way through the town to where my daughter was working, I thought about all the different things that make this place special.
Like The Old Town Saloon.
A very colorful watering hole that brings together the people who live in Clovis, as well as those from the neighboring city.
It does remind me of a Cheers type bar. Do you have a place like that near you? A place where friends and acquaintances can join together in convivial moments?
And the rodeo and antique malls add something special to this place. What do you enjoy most in your town or city? What draws you to a place?
