PS.  My hat’s off to the kids of this town, who are either very respectful or are running much lower on white-out and imagination than I am:

I totally didn't do this. Mostly because I have respect for public property. And I didn't have any white-out.

    Giant Chicken Stolen

    A 10-foot-tall chicken was stolen last week from a poultry farm in Windham Township, Ontario. The fiberglass rooster had been guarding the farm since it was imported from Texas in 2004. Thieves broke the $3,000 chicken and made off with it, leaving its feet behind. An anonymous caller reported the bird’s whereabouts, and police found it in a backyard in Milton. The homeowner, 36-year-old Brent Smith, was arrested for fowl play possession of stolen property. The farmers, Sonia and Frank Dierick, are hoping that an auto body shop may be able to reattach the big bird to its feet.

  116. If I ever get married, I’m wearing that Juanita shirt.
    I think it expresses beautifully how I’ll feel walking down the aisle.

  117. Kids are just not as creative or busy with texting their friends sitting next to them. With some paint and imagination, this sign could be the only Texan “HISTORICAL DICK WALK”. Don’t worry. With the church just down the path, it would be a short one.

  118. I think I know that town. Haha! I believe I’ve driven through there or a town like it because as you know, it takes forever to drive anywhere in Texas and the map is dotted with small towns like this one. Do you recall the name of the town?

  120. Your BLOG is great. But on , “And that’s how you know you are in Texas”, what really happened? The truck is in the same place.

  121. I do know that town. It is every small Texas town, ever. Somewhere near the Historic Ditch is a Dairy Queen. Guaranteed.

  122. I’m pretty sure my home state of North Dakota has ditch walks. Or at the very least, grain elevator tours.

  123. I’ve been there! At least, I’ve been there if it’s in Menard. Otherwise, if it’s some OTHER Ditch Walk somewhere else in Texas, then I haven’t been there.

  124. If that sign were out here in SoCal, it would have been marked up long ago and with far more than “bitch walk”. Kids here are very, ahem, creative and far less polite than kids there in Texas.

  130. I have to say that the Historic Ditch Walk is amusing, for sure – but OMG – you got a book quote from Neil freakin’ Gaiman? OMG – Neil Gaiman read your book and loved it? I would probably just decide that was the point in my life where I had accomplished everything possible and just be done.
