Everything is Bigger in Texas 9/365

Well, at least the boots are.  These boots hold the title of biggest boots in the world apparently.  Oddly enough they are located right outside of a mall here in San Antonio.  They have been there 37 years. 

One day the creator of the boots (Bob Daddy-O Wade) was contacted that the boots were on fire.  They weren't.  It turned out that a homeless man was living in one of the boots, cooking his dinner with Sterno, and using the shaft as his smoky chimney. "I don't know how long the guy had been in there, but they probably should have left him," said Bob. "It would've been a great attraction." Kind of a cool home, really...a giant pair of boots.

How did he get in and out of those boots? I would love to see them in person.

It's amazing how much the city has changed even since I was younger. It's grown like crazy!

Every place in Texas seems to be growing. I'll always be a Texan, no matter where I roam!
