Floydada hasn't anything noteworthy to mention except for maybe the difference in opinions as to how the town acquired it's name. There was a sign on the outskirts of town proclaiming Floydada as the pumpkin capitol of the world, so its got that going for itself.
I toured their downtown business district.
Mind you, this around noon on a Saturday.
It had this apocalyptic feel to it as I drove around.
I say this in no disrespect. This is a very common sight I find in all the small towns I visit.
Consider too, this is the county seat for Floyd County, Texas.
I like the wording and style of lettering here.
It was closed as was every other place of business (most for good)
except for a drug store and auto parts store.
What brought us here was their little park.
Here I admired the simple hand-done lettering.
This park is among the minority in the fact they provide electricity and water at each pull-in.
Even more so, the first two nights are free. Very rare.
Even though we didn't need or use their electricity, water or dump station
I still say "Thank you, Floydada".
Take note little towns, you provide a place like this and I will come.
