Readers Write- That West Texas Thing

Reader Vickie writes:

I am enjoying the hell out of your blog. Reminds me of when I was a child and discovered the western desert with my Daddy via the farm to market, ranch and oilfield roads.
When I was about 8 my Daddy took me down to Ozona on a rig he was working on. Going there we traveled the major highways and Interstate 10. But coming home, oh that was a different journey all together. We traveled up 90 and left the highway at Pumpville, TX. and took unpaved and oiled roads all the way up through the canyons and flat top mesas. We bumped and chugged along in his old Chevy pickup as he expertly navigated the back roads. It never crossed my mind he could possibly get lost. We stopped near a stream and feasted on cans of Vienna wieners, a chunk of longhorn cheese wrapped in red wax and saltine crackers. Just me and him and the wondrous craggy landscape and the blue, blue clear west Texas skies.
Sometimes he would let me drive real slow while he walked along beside and chucked pieces of mesquite from along side the road into the back of the pickup.(BBQ Chicken!) We walked and explored and brought home tons of arrow heads, fossils, old whiskey bottles and some old barbed wire of which the old man was an expert .

West Texas girls are special.
