Ah, well. The vacation is over and it's time to get back to the real business of keeping the roof over the head and the bodies fed. What is left is a series of memories of people, places and things which will last forever. Or as much of forever as I might have left. :)
Pictured below are my traveling companions standing along the sign advertising the existence of "The Grill" in Groom, Texas. We'd had lunch, there, which was good, and we were feeling full, and happy, if not really, really, warm. Groom is in the Panhandle region of Texas - which is flat as a pancake and just as hot as the griddle that MADE the pancake.
This picture is taken facing a little farther to the left, encompassing the rest of downtown Groom.
Groom is home to 600 souls. I have no idea where they hide them.
