Terlingua Spring turns to wine

      As many lakes and rivers dry up during this horrible Texas drought, a local spring also has receded to extremely low levels. But instead of completely drying up, the Terlingua Springs has been seeping wine!  This strange event is occurring where a limestone shelf meets a sand bar. A Scientist visiting from Dallas is studying the seeping crack in the stone, and is taking various samples. A few bottles of this precious wine are being sold on eBay for $29.99, and only in a limited supply.

     A Marathon woman will be making headlines as she represents the U.S. in the World Hotdog Eating Competition this spring. Carol Rudby has been conditioning for this contest since last year when she placed 5th. Mrs. Rudby is also a professional funnel cake eater, yet amazingly only weighs 125 pounds. She credits this to her long lineage as pro eaters. Her dad was world champ in 7 foods at one time during WWII. Carol has two sisters that also hold current titles in pizza slices and marshmallows.


  1. I wouldn't drink that if I were you, probably has some of that Terlingua mercury in it. That is what makes it glisten.

  2. Don't those wild burros use this watershed upstream also goats, cows, deer....?
