We were having a discussion about going out to eat recently. We do it a lot in Amarillo. I get it. It's a convenience not to have to cook. It's a lot more fun not having to clean up either. Plus you can get food that you don't cook at home. So you get to try new things.
To just think that we left behind the time in our holiday season to give thanks. We did that. We spent time with the family. All that time with food, fun, and family included pets that may or may not have done something to get in trouble.
The kids in Amarillo headed back to school on Monday looking forward to the Christmas break that is just ahead of them. There is a lot of magic in the air this time of year. The Christmas tree may be up. The lights are on the house. The Christmas inflatables fill the yard.
It all started with a simple closing of a restaurant on Halloween. OK, some places give their staff off for some holidays so maybe this wasn't so crazy. That one closed day didn't necessarily mean things were not looking up for a restaurant that a lot of us loved.
