Road Trip, Day 4, Pt. 3: On the Road Again

Billy Bass Adoption

After our intense morning museum experiences, we had some fried catfish, oysters and shrimp at a charmingly eccentric seafood place where they apparently find ways to decorate the walls by asking customers to bring in fishing items (fishing hats, lures, pictures of the "big catch"), give them a free meal in return, then hang them on the wall. The most entertaiining of these was a giant wall full of Billy Bass plaques, which are moving, singing fish replicas. Many are dressed up, painted, and given names. Every once in a while, one or several of the fish break into song while you are eating. We then drove across Arkansas and into Oklahoma, arriving at the home of our former Buffalo friends Jonathan and Amy Stalling.
