Disappointing. . .

Much to my disappointment Friday evening I found out that The Beacon, a dumpy, low-roofed roadhouse near Terry has been closed.

It has been a long time since I went there and the last time I have vague remembrances of drinking Jim Beam with a crusty old bastard named Pepper. I can drink a variety of liquors without large-scale impact, but whiskey is not an agreeable option. I think I slept in my truck for a while until I finally meandered my way home.

I guess all good(?) things must come to an end and I am sad to see another long-standing, true roadhouse saloon disappear into the foggy haze of history.

Goodbye Beacon.
