It must be the Holidays. The line at Louie Mueller Barbecue was too long – almost out the front door. Lucky for me, the BBQ is so good there. Today’s lunch was moist brisket, turkey, beans, bread, pickles, BBQ sauce, and iced tea. Yummy.
Here is a Pixlr edit of a photo I took in Taylor, Texas a few weeks ago. This place is a groovy looking bed and breakfast called “Pecan Manor“. I like experimenting with the watercolor style in Pixlr, and the original photo is below for comparison.
I had a wonderful opportunity to volunteer at the Shepherd’s Heart Food Pantry in Taylor, Texas this morning. They were super friendly and helpful people if you find yourself in the area with some free time to donate to a good cause.
My real reason for visiting Taylor, Texas today was the Skatepark Fundraiser put on by Project Loop. Over 150 artists contributed art on skateboards to help raise money for the kids of Taylor to build a skatepark. What an innovative way to put some funds together! The favorite skateboard art amongst the younger set was the “Operation” skateboard that lit up the patient’s red nose when the operation hit the guard rails. I had to fight the kids to get a photo of that board. My personal favorite was the moon man jumping asteroid craters. “SK8 or DONT” 🙂
The Taylor Train Station is a good place to catch a sunset and to wait for your train to arrive. The train tracks run parallel to Highway 79, and on your way to Taylor, you may get the opportunity to race a train locomotive that is pulling several rail cars behind it.
Downtown Taylor has several antique stores to check out with finds like this lamp.
“Please form line.” I got lucky today. Zipped right in and ordered my brisket, pork ribs, and beans. The food was awesome, and the line was short. Louie Mueller Barbecue is the best!
