No room at the inn.
That’s because there isn’t one.
A small hotel.
Or large motel.
A good place to stay.
So many want one.
So many visitors ask.
And then they go to other towns for lodging.
And take their money with them.
Groups of people long to spend time here.
But there’s no room.
Sure, there’s B&Bs.
And aren’t we glad!
But families and friends want to stay together.
In the same place.
Not just in the same town or county.
Not everyone gets to live here.
But lots of people love it here.
And they want to spend time here together.
Hold family reunions.
Celebrations of all kinds.
Groups of people.
Just imagine who we could welcome.
So many groups other than hunters.
Maybe car clubs
Must be a lot of those.
Rally through the Hill Country and stay overnight.
They could enjoy the square.
And explore every other nook and cranny of town.
Maybe head to the river.
Or down a country road.
Have a glass of wine at Sandstone Cellars Winery after an enjoyable day.
Then turn in at the inn.
The inn that has yet to be built.
That’s what we’re waiting for.
