Nearly did a double take this afternoon when I saw Kelly heading for the motorhome with an armload of clothes. She followed that with some dishes, shoes, & an assortment of odds & ends destined for travel to the southwest. That just kind of makes things officially official. Hadn't expected her to do that for another month yet.
Last night I blogged about the little western town of Chloride & to-day we had a nice email from some folks living near there saying if we ever travel that way again to stop by & they would give us the nickel tour of the area complete with history. Mighty nice of them western folks I'd say. The same day we were in Chloride we had also been to another small western town not far away. Monticello was even smaller than Chloride & it's houses were arranged around a central square much like a fort might have been. It was deliberately built like this as a defense against Indian attacks. For our visit to MONTICELLO click HERE & for the photos click HERE.
Before leaving Truth or Consequences that morning on our search for these western towns we had stopped at the MOVING WALL MEMORIAL dedicated to Vietnam veterans. You can read about the wall & how it was inspired by the Memorial Vietnam wall in Washington by clicking on the capital letters. This wall travelled from State to State years ago & now calls Truth or Consequences it's home.
Yesterday afternoon I took my health card out of my wallet & waved it in front of my sore right knee & said, "if you don't get yourself smartened up by Monday morning Mister I am going to call the Doctor & have you looked at!!!!" I noticed a big improvement in my knee when I woke up this morning:))
I wonder why bad stuff is always cheaper than good stuff. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around. I was at the grocery store in Goderich this morning looking for a box of healthy cereal. They had rows of huge jumbo boxes filled with Captain Sugarballs cereal. It would take 2 people just carry one box out of the store. Probably on sale for a cheap couple of bucks. I guess people take that stuff home & fill their kids up with it. Next on the shelf was some natural fiber & fruit cereal guaranteed to make you live till you die. The tiny wafer thin box was so small it could have fit in my shirt pocket. I bet you would have had to mortgage your house to buy a box of that stuff. Why are things like that anyway. Have I exaggerated this little tale.......well ok, maybe just a little:))
Also had a nice email this week from Lori at Bayfield's prestigious LITTLE INN. Seems they would like to use some of my photos & I was more than happy to oblige. Thanks guys:))
