DUBLIN DR. PEPPER

 For years we have always driven right through Dublin, Texas and never stopped at the original Dr. Pepper Bottling Plant.
 A couple of weeks ago we were headed home and decided to stop.  They give guided tours of the plant and the museum.
 It was very interesting and we loved all the memorabilia that was all around.
 There is only been 10% of the owners personal Dr. Pepper advertising collection on display in the museum.  They recently acquired property across the street from the plant and just this past weekend opened up the new museum with all of the collection on display.
 Now we will have to make another trip to see this huge collection.
 This formula of Dr. Pepper is still made with Imperial Sugar.  Yummy!
 Funny thing - we stopped in Stephenville on our way and purchased an old Coca-cola thermometer!
Mr. Dr. Pepper might not be to happy with us!  If you ever get the chance to stop you should.

Onto junkin' news.  We recently acquired a huge estate and are working diligently on sorting and cleaning.  Hopefully we can show you some goodies in the near future.  Lots of work to do and it is sooooo hot!   
Soon.......Susan

It sure is hot, but a cold, REAL Dr Pepper sure could hit the spot!
