Wet and wild in Texas

Wet and wild in Texas

When it rains, it pours. That’s the way it has been going in Texas this year. Poor Austin. They can’t catch a break in the Hill Country. A relentless drought plagued them for at least five years. When it finally rained, earlier this year, they got epic flooding of Houstonian proportions. We’re used to that […]

Clute, TX

I have been on a pursuit for a few years now to find the best kolache in Texas. This is not an original pursuit, but it is, I think, a noble one. If you don’t know what  a kolache (ko-lah-chee) is (which means you probably don’t live in Texas), then ask your friend Google. I can tell […]

Navasota, TX

This year I made a lofty declaration that I didn’t want to go anywhere. No trips. None. I’m a staycatin’ this year. Takin’ a break from the road. The queen took her a little ol’ trip to the Texas Hill Country earlier this year, but other than that, we ain’t been nowhere. Just staying home and staying […]

Road trippin’ Oct 2013

I’m trying to get back in the groove of this. A routine is needed. A blogging routine. Or not. But let’s jump back into it, shall we? Last October we took a big honkin’ trip up over yonder to Yankee land on the east coast. Usually when we drive up that way we go through […]

Fall color and llamas in Rhinebeck, NY

Starting where I left off, back in 2012 – where does the time go? We all know it goes down the drain, clockwise, if you live in the northern hemisphere. Or does it? In October 2012 we took a small-ish (for us) trip to Rhinebeck, NY specifically for the queen to attend the New York State Sheep […]

I’d consider a name change

I’d consider a name change

In December of 2012 we tripped over to Millidgeville, Georgia to hang with our groovy, artsy friend, Kim. This furniture store was near our motel. Perhaps the store has a long history and when it was first named there wasn’t anything to snicker about. But, I dunno. Can you imagine going through school with that […]

Wait… it’s been over a year??

Well dang it all to hell. It’s hard to believe I haven’t posted here in over a year. That’s a long time. Unless, of course, you’re comparing it to the entire history of time. In that case, it’s an insignificant speck of dust on the hair of a flea on a Chiweenie in the middle […]

Seguin, TX

Last year after we went to see Emmylou in Gruene we took a bit of a detour and stopped in Seguin, TX because the queen had a knit shop she wanted to check out there. Turns out it was more of a small craft store with a few knitty type things. Gruene, pronounced ‘green’, rhymes […]

Luling Watermelon Tower

I HEART water towers. I HATE water towers. Angel – Devil. Hot – Cold. Peas – Carrots. Upside down pineapple cake. Most communities view their water towers as functional entities without need for decoration or extra om-pa-pa. C’mon, y’all! All y’all! Every water tower needs some om-pa-pa. But noooooooooooo. Most water towers are vertical testimonials […]

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 […]
