Sarah and I

My wife Sarah is from a small town outside of Shreveport, LA called Waskom, TX. This is the prototypical Texas small town, complete with multiple Baptist churches, a highway rest stop that doubles as a Catfish parlor, and a three person police department.

Sarah's brother and wife

This is Stephen and Nicole, my future brother and sister-in-laws.

    Definitely my kind of town - The "Cracker Barrell" of catfish and a friendly guy named Stephen. Who could ask for more!

    I think Waskom has more than 3 cops now. Stupid speed trap

    This is it! I've filled my tank twice at the Texaco in Waskom on I-20. The first time was 1994 on my way to Vicksburg. The second time was 2001 on the way to the Everglades. I deliberately chose the same stop in '01 because of the fill in '94.
