Day 6 Archer City Texas to Dallas Texas

Lovely night’s sleep in the Desert Rose Room at the Lonesome Dove Inn, and a delicious breakfast this morning – French Toast with fresh fruit. We visited Buildings 2 & 3 of Booked Up, just to make sure we didn’t miss anything, but didn’t buy any more books. And then we headed south to Dallas, a huge modern city which was founded by JR Ewing in 1978 … wasn’t it? I wouldn’t really know, ‘cos I don’t watch TV much.

We’re spending 2 nights here at a Motel 6 a few kms from the centre of the city. Until recently, this Motel 6 was a Howard Johnson’s motel, so it’s a bit more upmarket than the usual Motel 6 – fridge, microwave and safe, but sadly no bottle opener, so we had to use Greg’s multi-tool to open our bottles of Mike’s Hard Lemonade (5% alcohol). We visited a Half-Price Books store and Greg bought a few language audiobooks, I bought a couple of McMurtrys (cos his own bookstores don’t sell any of his books).

Tomorrow we’re visiting the Texas Book Depository and the Grassy Knoll
