My World and Ruby Tuesday Train and Grain

visit Ruby Tuesday


My little town has a festival called the "Train and Grain" because that was the prevalent industry here we are growing some what fast for me but...
The Chamber of Commerce sits right beside the tracks and has Three train cars to tour connected to the building-- and grain elevators behind it
The signs say A City on the Right Track


There are flour mills along w/ others

Many local businesses are named for the surrounding area

and are owned by sweet local people who know who you are

Even the architecture of our wonderful Dentists office reflects the theme

I have lived here 21 years and have been very happy.

It looks like a place where you can knock on your neighbor's door to borrow a cup of sugar. It looks so peaceful in your part of the world.

It's fun to visit a place with strong roots in the local soil. I can see why you are happy there.

Looks like a nice place to live. I love the shot of the grain silos.

Ralph said...

Those are massive grain silos. Massive, that is, to someone who lives in a world without silos, at least in Connecticut. Not many trains, either up here. Everything is bigger in Texas, as they say. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Nice tour of your world! The red and green train would be perfect decorated for Christmas.

Marcia, this is a lovely post, the very reason I like this meme so much. All of us who post our more personal surroundings become fiends and care a little for each other. Living in a big world lie living in a little town where we are too.

Love the "Whistle Stop" sign - it's very folky without being kitschy. Good Ruby Tuesday story - thanks for sharing with us!

:D

It looks like a wonderful place to call home. Our town is not as small as it once was, but I still like it much better than the large city (Dallas) where we have lived before.
Like you, we've been here 21 years.

I like to visit your World.
What silos! I didn't know that your area was an agricultural region.
I love this house with so much charms.
