I went to visit my parents new home south of Dallas. The VA is in Waco and they go there often. Waco is one of the bleakest cities I’ve been too, and I’m sure is even more oppressive in the summer heat, when everything just withers and dries up.
Until today, I’d been underwhelmed with the food I’ve eaten in Dallas, though not surprised. It’s not like I think of Texas as state with refined culinary tastes.
