Floydada: 4 of 4

(All the way back in the last century, my son, Nathan, was ill*, and as a result our family participated in a Make a Wish trip. His friend Dennis went with us on the trip. We went on the annual Wish Flight, where kids from all around the country were flown to Dallas, then to Orlando, via a chartered plane. Nathan and Dennis decided to amuse themselves by pretending we were going to Floydada [a small town on the Texas High Plains], rather than Florida. They videotaped various participants in the event – the CEO of American Airlines, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, flight attendants, etc. – talking about how excited they were to be going to FLOYDADA. It was funnier, maybe, than it sounds, but I have a warm place in my heart for Floydada because of their crazy antics.)

Floydada, Texas
