Today’s sights: Superman; an executioner with hood and sword; a bustier-ed, tutu-ed, high-heeled, red-horned blonde devil; a carousel; a ringtailed lemur (authentic, not costumed); a  fried chimichanga (also authentic); little green men in front of nearly every business establishment (who’s to say?)

Today’s most delightful sight: A covered wagon (cover looked like plastic) pulled by two beautiful brown mules, out in the middle of nowhere

Today’s most promising sight: The Hardback Coffee Cafe, to be investigated tomorrow

Today’s saddest sight: Me, on learning the pool closed at 10:00 p.m.

Today’s biggest surprise: David handing me the keys and saying, “You drive.”

Today’s most bedraggled sight: Me, after driving for eleven hours

Today’s most chagrined sight: Me, after realizing I didn’t bring the cable for transferring photos from camera to laptop

Today’s most ridiculous eavesdrip: “How long have you been kissing her with the same mouth with which you kissed me?” (TV show about Daytime Emmys)

  1. On the main drag in Sedona
    there is a hamburger joint/cafe
    in flying saucer motif! Huge
    purple alliums out front
    complete the theme.

    The library looks fascinating!


    1. I would LOVE to spend some time in Sedona. I’ve driven through a couple of times but didn’t see the flying saucer cafe. Sure would like to do some wandering out there.


  2. How do you drive for eleven hours Kathy? In England that is impossible unless you go round in circles or very slowly. What a marathon!


  3. Heading for West Texas, you just point the car and drive–not a lot of twists and turns. For those of us in Central Texas, just reaching a state line can be a cause for celebration.

    Thanks for visiting and commenting, John. I hope you’ll be back sometime.
