Just a nice house with petrified wood in the design.
Volksmarchers on their way back in.
Paluxy Summit Blvd. got our blood pumping. It wasn’t called summit for nothing.

Leg Lamp like the one in the movie, Christmas Story
Just another nice house.
House with a historical marker.
Text from the historical marker: “Early Texas grist mill. Built like a fort — with gun ports and walls 3 feet thick at bottom — to withstand Indian attacks. Constructed in 1860 by Charles Barnard, who (with his brother, George) ran it until 1874. Previously the Barnards had successful trading houses in Waco village and elsewhere. For years, social events were held on the third floor. Cotton gin annex was erected in 1895. Building was a hospital 1943-71.”
Round tower next to the building.
Glen Rose mascot is a tiger. I think these used to be on top of Exxon gas stations with a logo of “Put a Tiger in your Tank“.
