    If I remember correctly we passed by something with the biggest Jackalope and people were stopping left and right.

    Like your example in Montana...it has to be unique.

    In all my travels, I have always stopped where it offered something unique like the carving of the initials in the wall at your place in Montana.

    I remember a western store in New Mexico where the walls were lined with Cowboy hats/boots not just any cowboy hats but hats from generations of Cowboys and some dated back to the early 1800's. We walked around reading family histories and looking at pictures for a long time. It was considered a huge honor to have your father's gear displayed there...it was like living history for ranch hands.

Oldtimer, I swear you in as Chief of Police. We're renaming Buford to an agreed upon name. All suggestions welcome.

    Gotta disagree Mr. Mayor, we can't rename the place, nobody will come. Just think if they renamed the Hot Dog, it's over 100 years old and selling better than ever. My wife says she'd like being the RN or Pastor.
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    All fringe benifits must be authorized by Helen Waite, if you want your SCI fixed go to Helen Waite!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    The place in Montana was until a few years ago named Lincoln's $10,000 Silver Dollar Bar. Now it's $50,000...people leave silver dollars (since the 50s) and they embed them in the bar and on the walls, ceilings, etc.

    They sell a lot of western style trinkets, and they rake in the bucks. Gas, motel, restaurant...

    .

    Ok then we need a church! I agree, we can't rename it. We need to re-invent it.

    My wife accepts.

    Tonja, you can't be disobeying orders. People get arrested for that!
