CALLAHAN'S GENERAL STORE

We were heading out to the airport in Austin yesterday, to pick up BIL Mike and his wife Priscilla, when we got a call saying their flight was delayed. So, we decided to kill a bit of time at the coolest ranch supply/hardware store ever -- Callahan's General Store, located about five minutes from the airport on 183. Check these babies out:


Reckon Santa would leave a red refrigerator under the tree for me, if I told him how good I've been?

Callahan's has just about everything you can imagine, from cookbooks and cookery supplies (including the biggest section of sausage-making and canning equipment you've ever seen)...


to saddles and bridles and a wall full of rainbow-colored lassos!


In between these you will find clothes, and accessories for everyone in the family, plus a room full of boots...


your usual Tru-Value hardware stuff, gift items, horse and pet supplies, a room full of live poultry, a garden section (with a nice assortment of handy-dandy pee-can picker uppers), and books covering everything you ever wanted to know about homesteading.


Callahan's -- it's my kind of place!


Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Priscilla and I are having a great time gabbing and catching up, while Mike and John partake of their very favorite brotherly bonding activity...


Gotta love 'em!
