Slug Bug Ranch: Most everyone has heard of or seen the Cadillac Ranch off I-40 near Amarillo, Texas where several Cadillac automobiles are buried nose first in a line. Over time the cars have disintegrated and visitors have spray painted the Caddys on every surface possible. However, there is another ranch down the road between Amarillo and the Oklahoma state line in the tiny town of Conway, Texas. Again, just off I-40, is the Slug Bug Ranch. There are five VW Beetles buried nose down next to an old, run down, shell of a former gas station. Again, the Slug Bugs are spray painted just like the Cadillacs.

Ahhh … a belated Valentine’s Day to you all. Flowers, chocolates, hearts, cards, muchas smooches. Luuuuvvv. Hopefully good romances and kindnesses renewed. And, for you husbands who forgot about it … I hope that couch is comfy. 😉
One of the greatest joys of priests and ministers is the blessing of marriages … brides coming down the aisle embodying scripture, “She was radiant with perfect beauty…” (Esther 15:5), and the congregation musing approvingly of the insight of the groom: “Do not deprive yourself of a wise and good wife, for her charm is worth more than gold.” (Sirach 7:19)

Sparky’s: Sparky’s opened in 2008 and is now like a museum for giant statues. The interior of the building features more unique Americana art work and decor. Note: Sparky’s green chile cheese burgers are the best! Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com
