... busy on a Sunday afternoon!
Back at the motel, 6pm - time for a beer. Walked for an hour (first we headed for a Mexican bar and restaurant but it was closed on a Sunday). We passed about 20 (or more) fast food places, but not a bar or restaurant in sight. So we bought a 6 pack at a service station and walked back to the motel.

To the red country and part of the gray country of Oklahoma, the last rains came gently, and they did not cut the scarred earth. The plows crossed and recrossed the rivulet marks. The last ...
