McClendon Villa September challenge Day 25

If you would like to play along, you can find more information on the challenge here.

Day 25 – What is your hometown known for?

A simple lifestyle, farming, clean air, natural disaster, destroyed.

Corn, wheat, soybeans, alfalfa, bugger slough, Wakenda Creek,  Rhiemer’s pond, The hog lot, the old jail house, the railroad tracks, barefoot children walking on dirt roads to nowhere, no crime, friends, family and home.

Oh yea…it was the birthplace of the Backyard Poet. I think I’ll go put a sign up on the highway that reads…”Former site of Wakenda, Birthplace of Jerry Brotherton…The Backyard Poet” just to freak out those two cars that will drive past it next month.

  1. HA! When I read the question I thought “The town is known for Jerry!!! 🙂
    So after I read your answer, I laughed! Great minds think alike! 😀

    Sounds like your hometown was know for some wonderful things. 🙂

    Years ago, driving through Muleshoe, TX I saw a sign saying that the actor Lee Horsley was born there! 🙂

    HUGS for you and your wife!!! 🙂
