I also tried out this little joint called Baby's J's near Palestine that made it's name this year as one of the best BBQ places in Texas (yes, I chase bbq). It was really good bbq and I know why it made the list, but the best part-the people working here are some of the nicest folks I've run across. Why Palestine? I heart their antique stores. There is also a railroad that runs through the town tourist can take. I take a car so I can carry home all my goodies...and I always find goodies.
I also headed to Good Morning, Texas a time or seven. I've prerecorded Monday's shows. There are a lot of changes in the work, so I'll be interested to see how things develop over the next year as the station is sold to a larger company. In the meantime, I'm collecting a few iphone photos to eventually share the behind the scenes. It's an interesting world.Here is that story with photos. Having said that...I have no idea what next year will bring. As a planner, that's fun. And scary. But...with one of my last two days, I decided to head out for one last day trip through Texas. I headed to Muenster, a little German town near the Oklahoma border.
I also visited the local grocery store, but check it out...
One of my favorite things about teaching=having the summer off. I miss getting the opportunity to see these same places in the other seasons of the year, but I can't deny my love of two months free from work, and full of adventures, both big and small. I decided years ago to be a lifelong tourist, even if those tours just took me a block or an hour down the road.
