The Caliche Times
"All the news with a dusty twist"

PS:  For all those new to Texas, caliche is a form of limestone used on our country roads that starts out as rocks but quickly wears down into dust.  Everything in it makes one sneeze.  No need to wash your car before you travel on a caliche road either.

All Caliche times stories are written about real people, events, and/or animals.  So if the stories look real they probably are.  If the stories remind you of someone you know; then you must know someone I know. Most are written with "tongue in cheek" and some embellishment could have occurred.   Some stories include names of real people.    Jerry
