    Talking Attention Fellow Rednecks....

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ORIGINAL-GILLEYS...QQcmdZViewItem

    (11/21/05 - KTRK/PASADENA, TX) - A piece of Houston history is going to the highest bidder. The originial Gilley's sign is up for sale on eBay.

    The sign drew millions to the legendary Pasadena honkey tonk in the 80s. You saw it in the movie Urban Cowboy with John Travolta. And if you didn't go there, you may have passed by it from time to time.

    The sign boasts all that Gilley's had to offer -- the mechanical bull, mixed drinks and beer, Tex-Mex and a recording studio, not to mention live music and plenty of two-stepping.

    The starting bid is $500. We'll let you know how the sales go.

    Now that's what I call a lawn ornament.

    The price is now $6,300 and the reserve has not been met. God only knows how much this thing is going to cost.

    Sure thing Max, I'll just melt it down first so it fits in my big bag. We can reassemble it from the picture when I get there.
