In Fort Stockton, you never know who you'll see at the local Wal-Mart. Tuesday, Oct. 10 couple Teryl and Cheryl Houghton of Baytown were on their way to Fort Davis when they decided to grab some groceries here in Fort Stockton.
“We're staying in the Davis Mountains for the night, but we're on our way to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the 2017 Hot Air Balloon Festival,” said Cheryl.
“We've never been to Fort Stockton before, but it looks like a lovely place,” added Teryl.
The Houghtons made it into Fort Stockton just in time for the cold front, which dropped afternoon temps down to the 50s. Excited to leave the cold air for some hot air balloons, the Houghtons ran into Wal-Mart to buy a copy of The Pioneer and groceries for their trip.
