Golden, Texas

19 Mar

Such a small town but tons of things to look at. Who would have thought to use bicycles to make a fence? There’s a tall authoritative looking building to the right of this bike-fence that looks like an attorney’s office but I really don’t know what is in there. I should have stopped in. Time was flying by as it normally does when I have appointments. Golden is one of those little treasures you want to stop by next time, get out, walk around, and talk to the locals.

Want to take a guess as to the name of the newspaper in Golden back in the early years?

    I love your blog and that fence. Who would have thought to use bicycles for a fence. You are right. I would love to explore this town.

    If word gets out about this fence there will be pickers going there to buy all those bicycles.

    i wonder if those bikes are for rent. as for the name of the newspaper, how about the ‘golden press’ or ‘golden rule’ as befits this christian community?

    Loch ness monster in a lawn…I love that! It took me by surpise when we stumbled upon it driving through the town. Who would have gone to such trouble?

    Plaridel, you got it: Golden Rule was the name of the early newspaper.
