...but this time in the other direction. Throwback Third Thursday (#tbtt) looks back to August 2012 when my dad and I made the trip from CA to TX via Route 66. I picked my dad up in Austin yesterday and now we are completing the circle taking the southern route back to CA so Paughey can join us at home for the holidays! It hasn't been the same the last couple of years without him there. We'll see if this trip is doable enough to be repeated in future years but it will be A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS having him there this one!
