Guess Where We Went Today
John has been wanting to take Ole' Blue out on the road. He really wanted to go about 150 miles to Eagle Pass, Texas to a casino. I wasn't sure of riding that far with my back not back to normal but I was saved by the bell, I mean the donkey people. We ran in to them again and we all had so much to talk about. I told them I was sorry I don't remember their name so I call them the donkey people. The Mr. said thats okay I've been called worse. I said oh I love donkeys so it is a compliment. In chatting we found they used to dance as we did and their health isn't what it used to be as our's isn't either. We went to the same dance halls, we know a lot of the same people both there and here in our town. Well today is Wednesday and that is one of their days to go to Whataburger and they were there. We finally got on the road going kind of south west. The sun was beautiful but the land is dry and the foliage is gray. We went to Los Angelos. Yes there is a Los Angelos, Texas. We didn't see any movie stars, we saw three old buildings at an intersection. I had read about an Elvis Presley museum of sorts at a hispanic man's house who was a big fan of his. I was thinking it was at Los Angelos but we didn't see anything like that so I must have been mistaken. Wish I had paid more attention to the location. We didn't see a lot except cactus on big ranches. On one road a buck ran out and ran in the bar ditch along side us. Seeming to want to race us but of course he was looking for a good place to jump the fence. On another road we saw an octagonal house. We had one of our funny conversations about that. John is hard of hearing and he always thinks I say something that rhymes with what I really said. He said that isn't an oxygen house. Oh well guess you would have had to been there. On the way home I wanted to stop at the Big Foot cemetary at Big Foot, Texas. Would you believe they had moved the cemetary? John said no that would have caused all kinds of red tape. Well it wasn't where I remembered it to be so we came home where old coggers belong.
