|West on I-40 through Amarillo...|
|As I was going west on I-40 in Amarillo I passed the Big Texan where I would soon be enjoying my lunch. Those early morning biscuits had about worn off and a powerful hunger began to take shape as I was passing by Big Tex. But I pressed on toward the Cadillac Ranch...|
|Continuing west from Amarillo on I-40...|
|I turned back to the east at the first junction past the Cadillac Ranch then pulled over at that place...|
|I'm very fond
of this work by
Fredrick Remington entitled "An Old Time Plains Fight," hanging
in the Big Texan.
Another painting that I'm quite fond of (not hanging in the Big Texan) comes to mind when I see the Remington above - "Breaking Through The Line" by Charles Schreyvogel...
|Rachel took care of all my luncheon needs...|
|I went with the puny little 36oz. "Houston Cut"...|
|I purchased Singing Cowboys by Douglas B. Green in the gift shop. Douglas B. Green is better known as Ranger Doug, of Riders in the Sky. This is a beautiful book and I keep it proudly displayed inside Bigfoot...|
