Yesterday (Monday) saw the end of our gathering for this year. Some folks had to leave on Sunday, due to work commitments, but the rest of us gathered for a final breakfast at the Obligatory Cow Reference before heading out in all directions. I tackled their Western Omelet, which was as delicious as everything else on their menu. Their breakfasts are a highlight of our get-togethers, and I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone complain about their quantity or quality.
Miss D. and I headed south to Amarillo, where we met up with Alma Boykin and Old NFO for lunch. As always, it was a pleasure to see Alma again. She’s good people. After the meal, we continued south, through heavier traffic than we’re used to on US Highway 287; perhaps the Columbus Day long weekend had proved more popular than usual for a last pre-winter vacation.
We were followed southward by Ambulance Driver, who stayed at Blogorado for a few hours longer to get in some more testing on a firearm he’s reviewing. He’s now on his way home to Louisiana, and occupying our guest room for the night. The cats are overjoyed to have us home again, but not sure about this stranger who arrived shortly after we did. One can almost see their minds working – are we planning to go away again, leaving them at the mercy of yet another temporary daddy or mommy? They’ll get over it.
Normal blogging will resume today. Thanks for your patience while I was on the road. It was good to see old friends and recharge my batteries.
