While driving to the East Texas Yamboree, in Gilmer, Texas, I saw a deer off to the side of the road. The doe seemed to contemplate running across the highway. I could see her muscles tense as she started to run in what would have been a direct line for our car. She tensed up, ran, and then seemed to think that running into a car wasn’t the best of ideas for an overcast Saturday. Just one of those surreal moments where I could see things playing out in slow motion and couldn’t do anything about it. Thankful she decided to veer off.
The East Texas Yamboree was fun. We met up with some friends and watched the parade. We saw:
- Harry Potter (JK Rowling)
- Mary Poppins
- Julia Child
- Beverly Clearly
- Mary Kay Ash
- Joanna Gaines
One of the local cowboy churches even had a float with Moses and Jesus on it. Harry Potter and Jesus in the same parade. Only in Gilmer, Texas can you celebrate yams and Jesus. And tons of American manufactured cars. Parade might as well have been sponsored by Ford.
How has your weekend been? Drop me a comment below.

Sounds like you had fun. I had a Pickleball tournament. Won one game, lost 4. It was a great experience and fun to do something new.
