The (provisional) main dock in San Marcos...it gets redone about once a week now.

The (provisional) main dock in San Marcos….it gets redone about once a week now. If you’re a hard core Christian, maybe you believe that the earth is only 5,000 years old, but if you’re more prone to the scientific view, you probably think that it’s had a lot more birthdays than that.  You know how …

Antonio’s Blues
