I am making plans for my next calaboose trip.  I saw a rather vague picture of a jail in Sabinal and when I went to images for that town I saw this one.  The problem is that “Images” often has pictures not related to the subject one is looking for.  However, because this jail photo was fairly close to the beginning of the images page I think it may be correct.  Looking forward to seeing it.

I periodically check the website “Red River Historian” to look for calabooses as well as lots of interesting pictures and stories.  This is a very well done site and one I highly recommend.  Just now, I saw a new one that is in Washington, OK.  I really want to add it to my calabooses from other states because it is most unusual, especially the window.

Last Thursday, I was in San Angelo to give a talk to the Concho Valley Archeological Society about my calaboose project.  It went well and I was told that there may be a calaboose in Garden City, Texas.  I took a different route home and found three new calabooses in Miles, Rowena, and Santa Anna.  This was totally unexpected but a great end to the trip.
