I have found the best fried chicken around. Yes, the best. The best was at one time in my home town of Pensacola, Florida at Hopkin's House. But, alas, Hopkin's is no more and the chicken is gone. Then there is Babe's Fried Chicken in Burleson, Texas, 10 miles south of downtown Fort Worth. It's a family style restaurant where you get yummy fried chicken and unlimited sides and biscuits. I get to go to the mecca of chicken goodness once a year after the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference in Ft. Worth. It's a tradition for everyone to go after the conference and a good tradition at that. This year I showed a part of me that few people see and became a Babe's Hokey-Pokey superstar. I was honored. I cna't wait for next year.
