Travel Log: part 4


There were two little cowpokes driv'n a pink caddy around the place one morning. With cow dogs and barn cats scattering in all directions. The cowpokes were laughing, spinning hookers, and generally having a great time, they made you smile just to see how much fun they were having.  Someone asked why they were driving a pink barbie caddy, and not a manly camo jeep.  The answer, because it was the grand girls (now out grown) and runs just fine. Besides, the little guys are tough enough to handle it.


The gathering of the clan was interesting, so many from so many far flung places. Touching base with roots that run deep.  Those that have stayed with being stewards of the land, and those that have served our country in other ways. The bedrock of our being.

Three states later, Dad and I made it back to N Calif. in time to celebrate Independence Day at home...

  1. I like the photo, below of the cowboy hatted, AV8R glass wearing, Brig, camo'd into the flag.

    And thank you for the travelog. I'm glad that your father was able to make the trip. These things are important.

  9. It takes a real man to drive a pink (or fuscia) car - or even a car instead of a truck! :-)

  12. LL: He hasn't been lately. Season opener here was July 16th. He went down to the ramp to check on the action, there were 30+ boats out...
    too hot, and too many boats, we will wait til it slows down a bit.
