It's not often that I get the opportunity to announce a new business coming into the Lawton area.  And it's so appropriate since we have been discussing this very subject for the last few days.

The subject, Carwashes.  There has been much debate over who has the best car wash in the Lawton area.  We may never know, but what we do know is there will be a Brand New Car Wash soon in downtown Lawton.

Welcome to All American Car Wash, adding a new location in Lawton, and conveniently located at the corner of 2nd and Gore, formerly the Center of the Universe, or at least adjacent to the Center in the former Nissan of Lawton, used car division.

The building has remained empty for a few years, possibly due to COVID, as the City was locked down for a good while. There will be no shortage of new car wash opportunities in Lawton, as we currently have two under construction, and new ownership at the Shine Car Washes at the corner of 52nd and Cache Road.

I for one am thrilled to have a new automatic car wash moving into the downtown area.  I prefer the ease of driving my car through rather than stand in the Oklahoma Wind to wand wash my car.  And with the recent ice/snow/slush week, believe me, my little red needs a good washing.  Though I will have to wait for this location of All American Car Wash to be constructed and open for business, it just can't come soon enough for me!

John Wayne: An American Experience museum Ft. Worth, TX.

If you're a fan of the Duke you have to make the trip to Ft. Worth and visit the John Wayne: An American Experience museum. It's located in the Ft. Worth Stockyards at 2501 Rodeo Plaza. The gallery below isn't even close to half of what you'll see there. With 10,000 square feet and several rooms, the exhibit has everything from John Wayne's early childhood to his final days. You can get up close and personal with all the costumes, wardrobe, and props that John Wayne used in his films and throughout his career. Along with all the great displays throughout the exhibit, there are quotes from the Duke, interactive video and audio sections, and most, if not all of the walls are covered in photo murals and picture collages of the Duke.
