Wallet Card Wednesday: Texas Contest Edition

I spent a little time “off the grid” of sorts while visiting friends in Texas. It was an experience that can be classified accurately as “rootin’ tootin’.”


This is their house, tucked in the middle of a ranch off a dirt road. You have to drive through cow pasture to get to it. There were peacocks, foxes, snakes, and even scorpions which we don’t really have in South Louisiana.


We also got around quite a bit. I took this next photo at a local watering hole where I wrote all kinds of nonsense on a picnic table between beers:


Let’s make this a contest. The first person to guess what city in Texas I was in when I wrote this, I’ll send you a some baseball cards and one very weird prize I found in a Home Depot Men’s room. Heck, I'll send you your very own 1989 Upper Deck #1 if you know exactly where this is and you're the first person to go take your own Wallet Card photo in the same spot.

I friggin' dare you!
