Day 6


July 10

Texarkana AR


Abilene TX

Texarkana is located in both Texas and Arkansas, hence the name. The dividing line crosses midtown right through the local post office and federal court house. Then, in Sulphur Springs TX, we needed to use America’s only bathrooms with see-thru walls. One was out of service but the other did the job! Yes, it is a one way mirror and you can only see from the inside out.


Audie Murphy, America’s most decorated combat soldier was honored with his own statue in Greenville TX.  The museum was closed (today is Monday) but the statue was awesome! Then we headed toward Dallas TX to find a cattle drive in frozen action. Incredible!


Naturally, we headed to Dealey Plaza which is where Dallas was founded and infamously remembered for the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, our 35th President. Those of us who lived through that period will never forget and pray it is never repeated.

On our way to Abilene TX we stopped to look out side a Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum. The gorilla is made of auto parts and the three dinosaurs are made of chrome auto bumpers! One baby dino was made of car junk. Caged in a glass trailer were some very large lions made of 35 miles of wool for the 2012 London Olympics.


Arriving in Abilene we headed to see the world’s largest buffalo skull and spotted several weather vane buffalos! Having gotten ourselves into a cheerful mood we stopped by the Dr. Seuss Park just a few blocks away. Check out Horton and Tickle. Are they looking at a Who?
