They've got some pretty, pretty buildings there, don't they? I like the yellow dry cleaners' with the red awnings. It's so cool when an everyday-type business resides in an unusual building. The world needs more of that.

lisa, there is "lots" to see in Corsicana. The dry cleaners buildings reminded me of the rollercoaster that used to be in the Oriental Corner section of Astroworld(!). It's funny how memory works.

I can't imagine why something called "bile beans" didn't catch on, pine blogger....
