In the last post I, very wrongly, bad bad me, placed Natchez in Louisiana. No, that is not the correct answer, I am the weakest link. Wet noodle, whip me now. Natchez is in Mississippi. If you are old, like me, I know when you spell Mississippi, you probably say this in your head, “em-eye-crooked […]

Oak Park!

It’s oaky, it’s parky, it’s Oak Park, our final destination on the Amazing Epic Eastern Road Trip of 2012. I guess Oak Park is considered a suburb of Chicago, but it doesn’t resemble a suburb in the way I think of suburbs – planned communities with houses made of ticky tacky. It compares more favorably […]

queen mum’s Turn You On tour

The Turn You On Tour of 2012. It’s all a blur now. The queen mum drove us to Ausable Forks on the Ausable river, the one that flows to Ausable Chasm all in an effort to find picture taking turn ons there and along the way. If you like the word ‘Ausable’, there ya go. […]

Self Portrait Friday

A day late, but I have a good excuse. We went to see Emmylou Harris at Gruene Hall last night. Self portrait doesn’t necessarily mean a face has to be involved. That’s my hand. It’s worthy. Hands are worthy, especially when they’re holding a glass of wine. This was taken at Driftwood winery in Dripping […]

Our road trips almost always involve hooking up with family or friends or both. This trip we stayed in LA with Good Friend Irene, she of constant motion who has very recently packed up and moved to Denver. Only 18 hours from Houston. Piece of cake, says I. While staying with Irene in LA, we […]

‘Bout time for a brew

Looks like this is going to be the longest, drawn out trip story ever in the history of long, drawn out trip stories. I’ve been out of blogging mode and in serious gardening mode. We’ve got a vegetable garden now and a compost dealeo. It’s all about sustainability so when the frackin’ Cylons attack, we’ll […]

We made it past the poo and the dust bowl, skirted San Francisco and headed to Mendocino. Our first visit to this small town on a cliff in 2004 left us wanting to return. In fact, the picture I used on the ‘About LtD‘ page was taken in Mendocino as we waited to watch the […]

La La Land

We drove I-40 to Barstow, CA and then headed down to Los Angeles. I didn’t take pics of the drive, time didn’t permit it. But, it’s really an awesome drive near the AZ/CA border. You come around this bend and drive into a canyon between two small mountains. Huge wind turbines sit atop of the […]

Water tower leads to lighted breasts

Water towers. I like them. I wish more towns would put some effort into making them interesting and artsy. Alas, it’s just a water tower , why bother, right? I suppose that’s how most people think. Yet, every once in a while you’ll see one with a smidge of character. Thus was the case in […]
