Yeah, what can I say, I've been super busy on the weekends packing and stuff and there IS a dorky giant pair of cowboy boots outside of one of the malls near us, but I just haven't had time to get over there!
So since I hate Texas anyway, this Alaskan girl will give you a picture of something her hometown (Palmer) is famous for (photo courtesy the Juneau Empire--I told you I was a cop out!)
Giant cabbage!!! My hometown was carved out by a ginormous glacier (that you can still walk up to and mess around on) and when it receded leaving the valley Palmer sprung up on, it left the soil rich in glacial silt which, coupled with the long daylight hours in the summer, is great for growing giant cabbage, potato farming, and marijuana. It's estimated that one in four homes in my hometown has at least one of the last plants mentioned in that list!
We've only got a week left of internet access before we get the heck outta Texass so I'll be mum for a bit on the assignments.
But don't worry, once we get re-settled I'll be back at it!
