Only in Texas

While traveling, we see some really interesting things.  We travel mostly in Texas and Arkansas.  Since I’m an Arkansan, I’m often amused by the things you can find in Texas.  We’ve stayed at a few hotels where you can make yourself waffles for breakfast.  Only in Texas can you find them like these!
