Down day in San Antonio
Just a day of relaxing after the mad dash up from Mexico City.
"Dad rented a television." TV wasn't everywhere in 1951. In fact, we wouldn't have one at home for another four years. It certainly wasn't standard equipment in motel rooms. At least this motel had them for rent, probably complete with rabbit-ear antenna. (Cable? You gotta be kidding. That's still 25 years in the future.)
