On the road again.
It's been a long week on the blacktop. I drove to Lawton, Oklahoma, on Tuesday, drove to Wichita Falls, Texas, and back to Lawton on Wednesday, returned to Wichita Falls and spent the night with relatives in Flower Mound (a Dallas suburb) on Thursday, and drove back to Pensacola via Shreveport, Jackson, and Mobile on Friday. The route from Wichita Falls to Flower Mound (a city name that I simply cannot take seriously) proved precarious at times, as wildfires raged on either side of the highway for much of the trip. Fortunately, the smoke only caused visibility problems for a brief stretch of road a little west (or east?) of Decatur.
