Day 3, Winter Murder Tour

Loooooong day. Started in Oklahoma City in the early morning darkness, and ended in Albuquerque. In the darkness. With a trip to Kansas and Colorado in between. It started in almost total darkness, save for flashing red lights in the distance. I thought perhaps a UFO was about to snatch me. Nope. Just row after…

Day 2, Winter Murder Road Trip

Memphis to Oklahoma City. Unfortunately, I had to drive through Arkansas. Sorry to any and all people from Arkansas, but your state is not for me. Nope. Nor my dog. I actually enjoy driving through Oklahoma. And I must say, the Fiesta Mart just outside of OKC is my new favorite gas station/McDonald’s/Mini-Mart. Why? They…

Graceland at Christmas

I have now been to Graceland three times: once with my mother, cousins and aunts in the summer of 1979, once with my mother and Justin (during his 8 year old Elvis phase), and tonight. Have I been by Graceland at night before? Yes. At Christmas? Not until tonight. What a wonderful and magical place…

Day 2 Murder Scene

Day 5: Oklahoma!

Grass! Green grass. Green grass EVERYWHERE! Drove eight hours from ABQ to OKC. Got in early, took a nap and then took Miss Eleanor to the OnCue Dog Park. Home of the two largest dog statues in Oklahoma. However, prior to arriving in Oklahoma, I made a pit stop in some place called Shamrock, TX.…

Cactus? Cacti?

I have no clue, nor desire to know this, but I do wonder if cactus is the state flower or tree? So many cacti. And they are a protected…something in the state. Never want to see another cactus again. Nothing personal, just not my thing.

Day 2&3: So. Much. Beige.

I made it to Las Vegas after 40 years in the desert. Ok, it was more like four hours in the desert, but you get the picture. Vegas was fun. Did you know that by Nevada state law, prostitutes/escorts/call-girls/whatever you call them, can not quote a price for services over the phone? Melissa, you may…

Day 1: Moses….

Today was bad. Started off bad and looks to end up…not so good. So why did I name this post “Moses?” Simple, the drive from LA to Phoenix is nothing but beige, barren land. It went on forever and ever. And ever. If Moses wandered around in the desert for 40 years, well, bless his…
