Carol and I are camping in Ogallala, a small town in Nebraska. Named for the Oglala Sioux tribe.
Back in the day, the town was quite a doozy as a terminus for cattle drives. This became possible only when the Union Pacific connected the town back to Texas. Ogallal was also a stop on the Pony Express and later along the transcontinental railroad. Yee Hah!
There’s a tourist trap called Front Street that has a bar and restaurant. So naturally we had to go. Walked right in with TiVo in tow hoping no one would say anything. Carol carried a blanket so we covered a chair and had him sit right up 🙂
When the waitress came over, I asked about wine and she gave the classic response: ‘We have red and white’. Uh oh.
So I ordered a vodka martini and the waitress turned to Carol who said: ‘I’ll have a beer’. I only hear those words about twice a year. LOL
