Thanksgiving Dinner!

Rather than cooking/cleaning up and dealing with the left-overs, we went to the Cimarron Cafe Thanksgiving buffet.
It was a lovely meal and best of all no work!
I chose a non-traditional dessert, a chocolate mocha pie, just the right small size !
After eating we walked around the small town of Ridgway [population approx. 1300] and wandered over to show our Aussie visitors the old Firehouse. 
The gentleman who lives there offered to show us inside the original Ridgway Jail, built in 1909. 
This building was actually in use until 1978........
I can't imagine anyone being incarcerated here, no doubt it was temporary, but it must have been a very cold place in winter!
We saw much more this afternoon but it will need to wait for another day, information overload!
