...a photo a day (or so) from deep in the heart of Texas.

I found this last week while walking by the Alamo. This carving was made by L.B. (Lafayette Bowyer) Wood, who was obviously stationed at the Alamo in 1856, when it served as an Army quartermaster's depot. After a little research I found that he was a West Point graduate and he died only two years later. He is buried in Virginia.
Now don't get any ideas to try and carve your name into the Alamo. They frown on that these days.
