Anyone who has ever spent any time in Abilene (or any other small city or town), knows what it’s like to have a love/hate relationship.

There are certain things that one may only experience if they get Out of Abilene. Those things drive you away – even if it’s only temporarily.
There are other things that could only come Out of Abilene. Those things may bring folks back or keep them here – not to mention provide fodder for Texas-sized braggadocio by our expatriates.
These pages contain meanderings (and maybe even some news) about things that have pushed me Out of Abilene as well as the things that come Out of Abilene and keep me here.
Expect lots of culinary/foodie pursuits peppered with some travel writing and photography (often related to the culinary world), current events and what it’s like to live with nine neurotic bird dogs (another reason I stay here).
