See, I'm a bit of a dreamer at times. I like to think about things that would make life easier, and better.

Sure, I dream of winning the Powerball or something like that to make it all happen but that's just not realistic.

However, there ARE some realistic ideas I've come up with, and seen others come up with, that would make life super enjoyable and some of those mundane tasks easier to get through.

One of the things that I came up with a long time ago was a drive-thru at a convenience store. This was when I was living in Colorado. Then I moved to Amarillo and what do ya know? There they are all over the place. So kudos for that one.

Another idea I saw was brilliant. How would you like to have a laundromat...with a bar inside?

Now that's a concept I can get behind. Look, we don't ALL have a washer and dryer at home. When you take your stuff to the laundromat, it's quite possibly the most boring thing on the planet. You throw your stuff in, and then you just sit and wait.

Now imagine if you could throw your stuff in the washer, then sidle up to the bar and order a cocktail? Laundry may take a bit longer, but it surely would be more enjoyable.

How about if you went to the grocery store and rather than walking around, looking for everything you need, you could take your grocery list, insert it into something and your groceries popped up in front of you five minutes later?

I get that we have the curbside and all that, but it still takes time and inevitably SOMETHING will be missing or wrong. If you could get your groceries in five minutes and know everything was going to be right, however, that would be absolute money.

What do you think Amarillo didn't know we needed until now? I'd love to know.

Say You're From Amarillo Without Saying You're From Amarillo

Amarillo is a pretty quirky place. We've got the Big Texan, the weird signs, and (obviously) the famed Cadillac Ranch. But more than that, there's a distinct culture of close-knit community, eccentrics, a thriving arts scene, and much more.

The point is, living in Amarillo is a unique experience. Because of that, it's really pretty easy to tell who's a native or a long-time resident. And I can prove it.

Here's a couple of ways you can say you're from Amarillo.....without saying you're from Amarillo.
