Goode people

Glenn Goode’s custom fiberglass company in Walnut Bend boasts a 22-foot cowboy statue highly reminiscent of “Big Tex,” which burned down Friday during the State Fair of Texas. Goode said his own cowboy is no longer formally called “Big Tex,” but was modeled after the 52-foot animatronic figure and was established in 1971. Also seen here are Goode statues of Jacqueline Kennedy and a pair of “Big John” figures based on a Tennessee grocery chain advertisement.
