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 to man’s inhumanity to water towers. Sigh. All water towers need art. Seriously. ALL.
In that spirit, I present to you the Luling water tower in Luling, TX. Luling is the watermelon capital of Texas – I think. Every year they have the Watermelon Thump and they pick a Watermelon Thump Queen, because every community needs a pretty girl to represent them lest the world think they’re total losers for having ugly women. Ugly men? No problem. Ugly women? Big effing deal.
There are many water towers out there yearning for some water tower lurv. But not in Luling.
