Reporting from Pauls Valley, OK (where the waving wheat, can sure smell sweet, when the wind comes right behind the rain…)
The day began back in Waco, TX—hence the waffle.
We drove into town, which boasts the the king and queen of cable home decoration, Chip and Joanna Gaines. It’s quite the empire.
Then it was off to the Dr. Pepper museum. There’s quite a history here of the various sodas (or pops, if you prefer).
We had lunch at an Asian food truck. Quite yummy. Our meal was only slightly impacted by a dive-bombing butterfly (don’t ask).
Waco certainly keeps it weird.
I noticed a billboard for “The American Domino Company”, so we stopped in. We left with a Number Domino 15 set.
Then it was off to Ft. Worth and the Water Gardens. They shot scenes for the film Logan’s Run here.
The next stop involved no photography—the US Mint. My mother will be happy to know I got in without a problem (she’ll know what that means).
A strange spot in suburban Denton, between two normal homes, is “The Chairy Orchard”. Is it an art installation? A neighborhood meeting spot? In any case, there’s a lot of places to sit.
Another un-photograph-able attraction was Magnetic Hill, in the middle of nowhere, Oklahoma. It’s one of those places where gravity supposedly goes haywire. It’s just an optical illusion—it seems like your car rolls uphill—but it’s fun.
Well, that’s plenty for now—I’m worn out. More tomorrow.
