Eat Local...

Craving a mid-afternoon pick-me-up; and spotting a Dairy Queen... I suggest "Does anyone want an ice cream?" (Does anyone ever not want an ice cream?) to which Will replys, "Can't we find something local?" Oh yeah, we did agree at the start of this trip that we would try to avoid chain-food-restaurants... So, in George West ("the story telling capital of Texas" according to their roadsign) we take a quick turn into "R&M Diner" promising "Homemade Food" on its tired old signage. Famous for fruitcups and snow cones, the sole propriator also offers two flavors (strawberry & vanilla). I take mine over some heavenly peach cobbler! Mismatched chairs, handwritten menu board, country music blarring on the radio - we definately aren't in DQ-anywhere-USA for this afternoon snack!
