Visiting Elida

Recently I took a trip with some friends to take in the countryside and the small town of Elida. There wasn’t much action in Elida if you didn’t count the tumbleweeds and one nosey but kind senior who crept after us in her car until we chatted. We didn’t glean all that much information from her but Wikipedia later informed me that a notable native of Elida is former Texas Tech Red Raiders baseball coach Larry Hays. Larry now teaches women’s softball at Lubbock Christian University but perhaps he thinks back to his Elida days from time to time, maybe he visits and gets his hair cut at the Elida Beauty Shop?
