Wait… it’s been over a year??

Well dang it all to hell. It’s hard to believe I haven’t posted here in over a year. That’s a long time. Unless, of course, you’re comparing it to the entire history of time. In that case, it’s an insignificant speck of dust on the hair of a flea on a Chiweenie in the middle […]

Got oxygen?

July came around and we hi-tailed it out to Denver to visit GFIrene – the original American nomad. She who has lived all over the dang place. From Houston she went to LA and now to Denver. It’s a right, easy drive – 45 to Dallas, 35 to Salina (rhymes with vagina), Kansas, take a […]

Emmylou plays Gruene

The Gargantuan Epic Eastern Road Trip of 2012 was over, and we were spent. We slugged around for a couple weeks but then had to hit the road again to go see Emmylou play at Gruene Hall. No, you do not pronounce it “groan” or “groany”. It’s “green”. I wouldn’t want you to em-barrass yerself […]

Oak Park!

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 […]

Repost of the guest post: Yosemite

I had to take this post down a few days ago because I was getting a ton of pings off it from China. Like, totally a lot. Everyday there were hundreds of hits on this post. It was really annoying. So, I’m posting it again. Unfortunately the comments didn’t save but the general consensus was […]

Greetings from Asbury Park

We left Gettysburg and drove another three hours to visit the queen’s niece, Crystal. Let’s see, the queen’s niece, hmmm…would that make her a duchess? She is very duchess-y, kinda like Fergie. The duchess lives outside Trenton in one of those cute, northern Jersey towns.  The day after we arrived she drove us to the […]

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 […]

Ladies of the Canyon

Ok, they’re not really in ‘the Canyon’, or at least what I think ‘the Canyon’ refers to. But they’re sort of close. That counts. I think it counts. It’s crowded in the Canyon these days. I’m sure it’s not quite what Joni Mitchell experienced back in 1969. Yikes, that was 42 years ago. We’ve had […]

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 […]
