West Texas

28 Nov

I guess, because it’s Thanksgiving weekend and a time when a lot of my family will be together, I’ve been thinking a lot about West Texas.  I grew up in the Dallas area on the East side of Texas but West Texas will always hold a special place in my heart.  I went to college in the Panhandle and I’ve been going out to this part of the state for holidays for over 20 years (since I was nine, hee hee).

When I was “home” last Christmas, I took a boatload of photos — as I usually do!  Here are some of my favorites that capture the feeling of small town Texas to me.
