    just checking out the site…great site…I enjoyed meeting you and your boyfriend and the Trinity Site…just wanted to make sure if you’re still in town to check out Owl Bar…if you haven’t already.
    They have some cool newspaper clippings right in the entry way and great stories about the explosion…best of all, the greatest chili cheeseburger I’ve ever had, and I’ve had my fill.
    Safe travels.

    ps I’m the anonymous interviewee guy with the camera

    take care

    Hey there, anon interviewee 🙂 Glad you stopped by. We did eat at the Owl Bar on the way back. The chili cheeseburger was wonderful, and the pecan pie a la mode was sooo-blime! Saw others who’d been at the site (it must be THE requisite stop en route back to Socorro), and, well, *I* became an interviewee, too. For a documentary about the Manhattan Project.
