Marathon (Texas) Carathon by Michael Tobis

Michael Tobis, the photographer and climate scientist, is another potential member of the West Texas Old Boys Association of Lower Canada College, which doesn't actually exist but would, as far as I can determine,consist of MT, Lorne Matalon, and moi.
Even Hondas do acquire texture and, dare I say, patina out there in Brewster County. Next time in Marathon, dinner at the Gage and a visit to the Dan Picasso garage.
