My unexpected, but really great work-related "Tour of Texas" took me to Wichita Falls and Sulphur Springs. I managed to drive from Austin and back to Houston without getting on an interstate covering over 1500 miles. I got to meet new people, see new parts of our beautiful state, visit a few old favorites and try some new barbeque.
|From Dublin, Ireland, to Dublin, Texas - Home of the Dr. Pepper bottling plant|
|Stanley's BBQ in Wichita Falls, Texas|
|My sampling from Stanley's. I got a chopped beef sandwich, cornbread, potato salad and onion rings.|
|Potato salad was smooth and creamy, more like mashed, whipped potatoes. It was my favorite and tops my list for potato salad.|

|I love Texas's old courthouses! - Sulphur Springs, Texas|

So, with my whirlwind tour of West and North Texas complete, it was a long drive back to Houston. Next up...Houston, Texas Football, Baby Showers, and the State Fair of Texas.
