This place is growing scary fast. Southpark meadows was where you used to go for concerts, now you go there to buy pants, cafe mochas, and go to walmart
Used to me miles and miles of scrub-brush. Now it's cookie cutter houses, Apts and shopping/strip malls.
I live off the east side of Slaughter. I grew up in Austin and moved away in the early 80's. Where I currently live used to be nothing but cow pastures.
Hell, I remember when Hill's Cafe was the South end of Austin and Ben White was just that!
I have to say, I get a kick out of giving the Slaughter Ln address to non Texans
Every one of them goes...
You live on WHAT lane?
Slaughter darlin'... like slaughter a cow
