My Favorite Road Sign, Ever
Texas has a vast network of Historical Signs posted along every roadway. As you probably know, I typically whip off the road to read these. However, I’ll be honest, most of the ones here in Texas have been so filled with hyperlocal minutia that I’ve been weaned off my habit. I give major props to the highway workers responsible for this sign! And no, though I (safely) flipped a U-turn on the highway in order to snap a photo of this sign, I did not stop to read the actual marker.

Texas is a proud state and Texans are fiercely loyal to Texas originals. Dr. Pepper and Shiner Bock are two such creations. Dr Pepper was invented by a pharmacist in Waco in the 1880s. While the Spoetzel Brewery, the oldest in the state, began producing Shiner in 1913.

Overheard: Selling What?
A fourth generation Texan in the Coastal Bend area watched his girlfriend drink another beer and said to me, ” Man, she’s gonna be selling Buicks in the morning!”
I understand that he meant she was gonna regret it but I’ve never heard that phrase before. Couldn’t find it on Google either. Perhaps it is hyper-local? Regardless, it made me laugh.

This is but one of the creative “yarn bombs” on the bollards lining the I.B. Magee Jr. Beach Park in Port Aransas. The group behind the project hopes to put smiles on peoples’ faces with their colorful knittings. Worked on me. 🙂
