Jerry Lee Lewis Museum

Our last stop before heading back to Houston was the Jerry Lee Lewis Museum in Ferriday, LA. Unfortunately, it wasn’t open when we arrived. Which is a bummer because, according to the web site, Jerry Lee’s brother, Frankie Jean, will give you a personal tour. Ugh. I really need to research these things. How awesome […]

A roadside classic: Mammy’s Cupboard

After contemplating the mysteries of the Abita Mystery House, we found refuge at a hotel in Mandeville during a torrential downpour. We sat in the common area drinking beer and wine and ordered some ‘za. The pizza delivery specialist was a real trooper bringing us pizza during a Looziana monsoon. The next day we headed […]

As you should be aware by now, there are many places to experience the vast mysteries of the universe, to stand in awe before the questions that have no answers, to be dang ol’ gobsmacked at how mysteriously mysterious mystery can be. There is the mystery of Confusion Hill in Californy. There is the mysterious […]

On the bayou: Chauvin Sculpture Garden

Hmmm, August 14 was the last time I posted. Dang, a lot has kinda happened since then. I guess I could continue on about the Denver trip, but that was so last July. Besides we weren’t there very long and basically drank beer because there be a lot of crafty beer making types in Colorado. […]

50/60: New Hampshire

The 50 in 60 Tour, complete with expensive t-shirts and ridiculously useless ‘thneeds’, keeps a chooglin’ with the addition of New Hampshire and Indiana. The 50/60 Tour is about me visiting all 50 states before I’m 60. It used to be the 50 in 50 tour, which had a much more┬ásymmetrical vibe goin’ on, but […]

The Big Duck of Long Island

Our little dock on the Sound was near the ferry to Long Island. I had a particular roadside attraction on my list for this trip but it all depended on how we felt about making a day of going over to Long Island. The decision was made. The day was sunny and crisp. So, let’s […]

The tooth and more

Within walking distance of the Renoir dancers and Mariachis sits the tooth. It’s a big tooth. It resembles an undiscovered dinosaur, a Molarsaurus, but it’s a tooth. Why a tooth? Well, why not a tooth? I mean, why not Jello? Or an athletic cup? Or a crescent wrench? Because it’s a tooth. It just is. […]

Hamilton NJ, sculpture capital of the world

I don’t know if Hamilton Township in NJ is the sculpture capital of the world, but it’s probably pretty dang close. I didn’t even know about Hamilton’s Grounds for Sculpture. I didn’t even know Hamilton, NJ existed. So, it was quite a wonderful, little surprise to see these sculptures as we drove to the NJ […]

This is not a duck

And you’re saying, “Of course it’s not a duck. It’s a windmill.” Very true. BUT, if it was an establishment that sold windmills, it would be a “duck.” And you’re thinking, ‘wha?’ It’s true. An establishment whose building is the shape of what that establishment sells – is a ‘duck’. This particular business sells hot […]

What about the lights?

No, we did not attempt a viewing of the Marfa Mystery Lights. If you are not familiar with the Marfa Lights, you know what to do. I certainly wanted to see them. The deal is, you can go out to the viewing place and return with nothing but a hangover the next day (if you […]
