Lots of people complain about how boring the drive is through much of Nevada, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.
Don and I are easily entertained, so we've never minded the flat drives or dusty scenery. But it all does seem more lonely and dreary looking, during these pandemic days. I worried about the hitchhikers, in their masks.
It's good to see, many states had signs and reminders about Covid. But not all signs are very pleasant.
I'm looking forward to post Covid days and post election days, when we no longer have to feel jolted by words and worries. Navajos for Trump? Who is paying for that sign?
Driving through Roswell, I felt a little lift from current worries.
The aliens and spaceships gave me a nice chuckle!
Our very best surprise on our drive, was when we found the Musical Highway, not far from Albuquerque.
We had heard about the odd creation, a few years ago. We knew that rumble strips had been placed, to help create a musical sound.
But I searched the internet and learned that the sign had been removed and the musical road was no longer maintained.
We searched anyway. The sign was gone. (this one is from internet) We found the spot by mileage and slowed to 45. I squealed when I suddenly heard the road humming to us! "Oh Beautiful for spacious skies..." It was there! We turned around and drove it 2 more times!
Our Favorite Squirrel!
The Musical Highway made me giddy, but seeing good old Ms. Pearl the Squirrel made me grin. We were on TX 71 about 2 hours from home, when we drove by Berdoll Pecan & Candy Co.
I took a window photo as we flew by. You go Pearl! Since this pandemic began, our 14-foot lady, has been sporting masks of many colors.
What a nice greeting!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
