A slice of small-town Texas life

Several days ago we had called friends from the RGV to see if we could meet for coffee somewhere along our way. They invited us to overnight at their place in Fritch TX, so we accepted. We arrived at Noel & Carol’s a little after 3:00 pm on Sunday and enjoyed a wonderful brisket supper with them, their daughter-in-law and their grand-daughter. We had a really nice visit around the firepit that evening catching up on all of our summer trips and getting reacquainted again. Only a Texan would get the firepit going on a 97 degree day!! Just kidding, Noel – it was fun! Breakfast this morning was a very entertaining event at a local restaurant. We’re sure enjoying these tastes of small-town America again and truly enjoy Texan’s own brand of humor! After a side trip to see the Lake Meredith Reservoir, we hit the road about 11:00 am and headed back to Hwy. 83. We stopped at the Childress Dairy Queen for snacks and then continued on to Abilene where we stopped for the night at the local Wal-mart parking lot. We picked up some chicken and salad for supper and called it a day.
