Behind the Legion Post

No surprise here: I walked around the back of the American Legion to see whatever I could see. And I found a little array of chairs and a nice tree shadow. It was worth the 142* extra steps.

*Estimated amount. I actually have no idea.

Stop at Cow Dog

The stop sign’s shadow adds a subliminal message, maybe, to the front of the food truck.

On a side note, I did not eat there, but only because it was closed.

Pipe rail gate, almost invisible

A sliver of a pipe-rail gate anchors the desert, while clouds slowly build.

But it doesn’t rain.

Empty Saddle (Club)

I sure hate to see this place go. I’ve had a few beers there in my time.

The Time-out Chair

I found this at the back door to the Brewster County Courthouse; I assume it is where the unruly employee(s) have to sit when they get put in time out. It’s in the shade, and the trees are pretty and the air’s fresh, so it’s probably a nice place to sit. Even if you are in trouble.
