Travel Tidbits

Here are some random photos from our road trip. Things I can't see fitting into a "regular" post except maybe "each of these things is not like the others", to paraphrase Sesame Street.

How frustrating is this? Riding in the car and getting a rogue tab that refuses to do its job. I used my handy-dandy Leatherman tool to beat the can into submission.
Too bad it was dark when I found a place to sleep my first night out. I chose the Dutch Motel, then the next morning saw a beached steamboat across the highway at the Scottish Inn. Maybe that was the motel. I'll never know.

This "love you" was in the sand outside a New Mexico rest stop.  I have nothing to add.

Ameranth and Anna- just a pair of rebels!

This crack is one of many resulting from the drought in Texas. #2 had to put a board across one of the larger ones near his house.

I just like this speckled cow. She had the biggest horns, and definitely kept her eye on us when we got out of the truck. I kept an eye on her as well!

A little too happy, you think? This was just in Utah and we had at least another week ahead of us. I wonder why we didn't get a happy face from Sally? She may have been ignoring us, or just checking on Bertie.

The cow in the picture just had a calf and the cracks are mostly gone.
