From the “Who knew?” files

Whataburger World Headquarters is barely a mile and a half from my (brief) childhood home in Corpus Christi, Texas, the only place I lived as a kid that I haven’t since revisited.

I think I’ve finally found an excuse for a road trip.

    Funny… I did a brief childhood stint in Corpus, myself. 1980-81, I believe.

    I do remember the Whataburger chain being at the forefront, but I don’t guess I ever toured their World HQ. You’re right — that merits a trip back down thataway.

    I loved Corpus; wish I could’ve stayed there.

    Turn on Dorthy [sic], climb onto Gollihar, and that’s half the battle.

    Per Zillow, the Old Manse is a whopping 840 square feet, which throws a monkey wrench into my memory bank.

    Drive to New England and get some fried clams instead. Yum.
