I have the perfect job (my real job, I mean – the one with a paycheck) which enables me to travel to various small towns across the Texas high plains to visit our agency’s offices. And, every now and then, take a few photographs.
This visit was exceptional; in this town, our agency leases the ground floor of an old building. After our real work was done, we explored the vacant second floor of the building.
Good thing I had my camera with me that day….
In contrast to yesterday’s post, at least this signage is legible. But that doesn’t necessarily make it understandable.
Am I right?

There is a lot of information on the front of this place. Unfortunately, I have no idea what any of it says.

If you like compound words, you’ll just LOVE this place: the Shallowater Trustworthy Hardware store. And, as a bonus, it’s just across the road from the Goodpasture grain elevator.
The town is named Shallowater. The town-namers were pragmatic folk; in addition to Shallowater, we’ve got Plainview, Levelland, Brownfield, Littlefield. Of course, there are also several Lakeviews, none of which do; so I guess some of them were wistful instead.
