I loved Odessa as a kid because it had Water Wonderland. I loved me some WW.
As water parks go, Water Wonderland would definitely land on the shithole side of the fence, so I think shithole is a pretty fair descriptor of Odessa. Don’t feel bad.
As an aside, my mom told me the other day that she was friends with the guy who wrote Amarillo by Morning and that he’s dead now.
Also, when we karaoke that song, it’s “Armadillos Get Horny”.
Two useless fun facts about stuff you don’t give a crap about. ☺
You are welcome!!
