... in Texas. It pwns In and Out burger.
It's bittersweet to be so close to home.
I miss the kitties. I miss my own bed.
However, I did NOT miss the awful awful Texas heat.
I will miss exploring the US and the adventures of going to so many places that we've never been before, but we will be back, eventually, so there's that :)
Tomorrow is the last night before we'll be back in Houston.

... God for that, because from where I was, it looked to be the size of a tennis ball. Having seen enough I head back, torn on whether to tell Randy what I saw- not that he's a sissy about these kinds of things (wink wink, nudge nudge). I tell him and I'm sure he thought I was exaggerating; just wait, he'll see. As we drive into Canyon to find the WalMart, Randy almost hits another one of those giant spiders- that's right, it's big enough that you would see it if ...
