Just in front and to the right is a cement pad that was the floor of a home which burned about three years ago. It belonged to a local vetenarian. It was the victim of a grass fire fueled by our famous Texas winds. About 5 other homes were lost. I don't think the phone booth was more than a conversation piece. Yes, the city limits of Amarillo are only about a half mile up the road. You're right; it does look lonely sitting there all by itself. However, there is a home just to the left and about 100yards away that the fire missed.
