Adventure Awaits at the Ruins of an Abandoned Zoo in Cisco, Texas

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property. We are already thinking about some springtime or summertime activities or road trips. One such road trip could take you almost to Abilene in the western part of Texas in the little town of Cisco. This town was once home to a small zoo with what was home to the world's largest man made pool at the time. It has long been abandoned but locals have taken to the area to clean it up and turn it into a walking trail for all the see.

Woodson News: Happy Mother’s Day

My mom is special. She once walked away from a purchase of a stuffed animal kitty toy because the clerk was rude. She never made any “normal” meals; we had Chop Suey, Beef Stroganoff, lasagna, and spaghetti. (Some may think spaghetti is normal, but not my mom’s; hers was homemade and the best in the world.) Once, she almost stepped up on a horse, but at the last moment thought better of it and descended the stairs we had built. Once, when I was four, she made me get out of the car in the parking lot and direct her out of her space. Another time, she was Peppermint Patty in a play; I hung on her every word, during every performance. She would have gone to school and fought my battles, but she let me instead.

Chicken-fried Steak, Just Like Mama Made

My mama was a wonderful woman but she wasn’t much of a cook. She could slap together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for a lunchbox, but when supper came around the primary go-to dish was something my brother, Billy Ray, and I dubbed “Ma’s Mush,” essentially a can of pork ’n’ beans mixed into some ground meat. (Though I have to admit I loved it then and will sometimes stir up a bowl today. It’s pretty tasty when you dip it with corn chips.)
