I wanted the citizens of Victoria to know what a wonderful city they have! We've been in Texas more than 30 years and had heard it was pretty cool. My wife and I went there the weekend of April 20 on a lark and stayed at a bed and breakfast.
Serendipitously, we met Mayor Will Armstrong and his lovely wife, Linda, on Friday night in De Leon Plaza. They answered all of our questions and gave us a tour of downtown that evening. The next day, Will graciously gave us a tour of the entire, and I mean entire, city for more than an hour. Wow, talk about Texas hospitality!
We really enjoyed looking at all the gorgeous old homes and courthouse building and eating Mumphord's BBQ. The Johnny Cash movie and Delbert McClinton weren't too shabby, either. We're already talking about retiring here.
