Ulvade, Texas is one of those towns you might see listed on a road sign when you're driving in Texas. You might even pass through it and maybe even stop for gas, but most people probably wouldn't go to Ulvade for any reason.
The first time I passed through this small Texas town was in 1974 when my friend Vernon and I were driving back to Tennessee after visiting Big Bend National Park. We'd gone to the border town of Ciudad Acuna, Mexico and followed U.S. Hwy 90 through Ulvade in order to pick I-10 in San Antonio. I remember seeing the mileage signs to Ulvade, but I don't remember the town.
And so it was over the years. I'd see the sign telling how far it was to Ulvade and then we'd pass through it. Once the show I toured with in the 80s actually played Ulvade. I don't think it was more than once and the one time I can't even remember anything about being there. I only remember seeing it on our schedule. It stood out on the schedule because I had seen the name on signs so many times.
I suppose Ulvade might be an okay place to live. I couldn't say because I don't remember anything about it. According to the official website of the town, "Uvalde is an active and engaging city, and a great place to live! " I'll take their word for that.
For me, Ulvade is an okay place to pass through, but I wouldn't want to live there. But then again that's not a fair thing for me to say since I only remember the name of the town. I don't remember anything about Ulvade itself.
