And Just for Fun…if you’re
wondering what’s up with that photo above: many thanks to the homeowners along Hwy 287 who
during the hot Texas summers would position this vintage convertible in their
driveway along with two mannequins sporting bikinis. Around Christmastime Santa would replace the mannequins. Evidently
the property has sold because the convertible (or Santa or the mannequins)
haven’t made an appearance in several years but it was a fun landmark to watch
for during many long road trips home to the Panhandle. Gotta love it…Texans are wonderful!
