Back in town
Miss D. and I went up to Amarillo yesterday. I was invited to speak to a local school class about my experiences in Africa, and what it was really like in that continent. Their textbook was riddled with errors, and their teacher knew that I'd be able to set them straight. You might say so . . . some of them looked rather shocked to learn of the true state of affairs. I hope I did some good.
The journey up and back was relaxing. The grass is green and flourishing along US Highway 287 at present, so the view is pleasant - not dry and brown as it will be later in summer, when the heat fries everything to a crisp. (Wichita Falls has a cycling event called the "Hotter 'n Hell 100" in August, which is well named and sums up the northern Texas summer very well!)
We're back home now. I queued up several blog articles to post automatically in my absence, so I hope you were duly entertained. Regular posting will now resume.
