Dead and Dying Little Town
Not Ringling as the Jimmy Buffett song goes, but Robert Lee, Texas. Kman and I were there last weekend to visit with family and I snapped this Joad-ish abode photo.
(Note, someone was living in this quaint little house, but no one we knew.)
Both comical and sad - the heart-shaped shutters someone thought would spruce the place up...a coat of white paint would have been the better value!
Here's the tune, Ringling Ringling, though the accompanying video is of dying little towns in Missouri - could be the same photos of most small Texas towns.
