Larry (left) invited me over and treated me to a delicious steakhouse dinner, and I was particularly grateful for the shower/laundry/etc after the recent wave of damp, hot, and humid weather. Also pictured are Larry's cousin Al and Al's daughter Emily, both really kind and friendly people.
The title of this post refers to being west of the Missouri River. The air is much drier today (praise to your deity of choice!) and the land just looks like the West. I have a tough time capturing landscapes on my phone camera, but I'll post a shot as soon as I get a decent one.
