A Country Breakfast

Circle Y Saddle

We don't have many restaurants here though we do have Montes, which is a Mexican diner that's not far from the Courthouse Willie Nelson helped rebuild when it burned down in the '90s. Willie, and Waylon, are not Illuminati stooges or part of the sinister NWO conspiracy that put up Denver's new satanic airport, at least as far as I've been able to work out. But that's a digression.

The Mighty .303

I like to go to Montes on Monday for breakfast and get Huevos Rancheros, corn or flour tortillas, I don't care, and strong coffee. Nothing fancy, but pretty good for all that. The staff were playing some kind of Latino dance music, kind of funky for breakfast, but whatever, and the table next to me was full of these workers who'd pulled up in battered 2500s. They were discussing the comparative merits of Madonna singles, "Well, I reckon she was influenced by Groove Armada, and I don't like that," type of thing.

No Hunting Today

I was planning on hunting some rabbits after breakfast but was rained off. It's all going on in the countryside, I tell you.

Ride on,

I never knew that Nelson wrote Patsy Cline's “Crazy”, nor that "[s]ome claim that it is against the law in Texas to mention Abbott without also mentioning that it is Willie Nelson’s hometown."

Great story on why he's beloved:

Coincidentally, I made something like that breakfast yesterday

All about Mr. Nelson 'round here, though some people, in this town, feel that "he smells". I wouldn't know about that.

Well done on the breakfast! Will check out the link.

I love your saddle picture LSP! Could I 'borrow' it for my blog?

Your breakfast sounds tasty - certainly beats Cornflakes.
