New Braunfels Chili

Another Chili image
Can’t resist some times, and I don’t always grasp the concept of pop art, in as much as some of my skills probably lie in that area. Lay there?

Where’s the grammar guide when I need it?

This is the Red Monday category entry, side street — like most little towns in Texas — everything is a side street — Comal County, New Braunfels, TX.

The town was, at one point, just intended as way-station and jumping off point.

Strange, or not, to find heavy German influxes around industrial water sources, a little more than a hundred years ago.

    I believe lie is correct. You use lay if you lay something down.
    Nice sign. The eagle has an unusual-looking head.

    Even with degrees and all, I’m still learning grammar.

    The eagle’s head is probably German, before the last century, but it could also have a “Mexican Imperial” sense, too. I’m unsure of the antecedents.

    The scroll just contains the name, “Gebhardt’s.”

    Probably original.

    Actually it is over 165 years ago that German emigrants founded New Braunfels. New Braunfels was platted and planned, from inception, to be a center of trade and continues to be so today.

    The logo you reference was trademarked long ago and the original settler of New Braunfels – Willie Gebhardt, developed the recipie for chili powder while working a the saloon.

    Forgive the German gentleman for having learned English as a second language and celebrate the chili.

    New Braunfels has much to offer!

    I was just fascinated with the artwork like that.
