Luckenbach

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas, with Waylon, Willie and the boys....

We weren't feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys, but we did manage to make a couple of stops in this Texas town of, count 'em, three this week.

When you get to Luckenbach, one thing is pretty obvious. There's not much to Luckenbach. The center of town is the General Store. Once upon a time it also served as the town Post Office. But, this town hasn't had a Post Office since 1971. Today the General Store is pretty much just a souvenir shop.

The General Store features some fine displays of apothecary of yesteryear. We picked up some Teaberry gum. (And, yeah. Now we remember why nobody chews Teaberry gum anymore!)

The Luckenbach Dance Hall is home to live entertainment most nights. This weekend it's hosting a Blues and BBQ Fest. Sounds like lots of fun to us!

And, this would be the Luckenbach Mall. That's it. Just the hat store!

When we stopped by with Mike and Leslie the most active thing in town was this rooster. It seems like Mike struck up a special bond with this feathered friend.

We never did find Waylon or Willie. But, here's proof that Leslie and Mike made it Luckenbach.

And, so did we.


And, on today's trip we introduced Paul's sister Susan and her husband Doug to the place.

And, we're pleased to report there ain't nobody feelin' no pain.
