The Grand Canyon

I'm in Tucumcari tonight; in other words, I didn't make it very far. I didn't go to the Grand Canyon, but I did see several Kaibab squirrels with Dr. Spock ears. I'll find a pic for you; you just have to see them.

I stopped in Gallup today, missing the All-Indian Nations Pow Wow by one week. I'm bummed. Gallup is the best place in the world, I think, to buy Indian jewelry or crafts. The craftspeople often come in from the reservations and sell their wares. I spent a few hours mogging through the jewelry and craft stores. It was really fun, but it put me a bit behind.

Tomorrow I go through the Texas panhandle then into Oklahoma. If you ever go through Oklahoma City, just a few miles off the freeway is a memorial for the children killed at the Murray Federal building. Swing by and see it. It's heartbreaking.

Well, I'm heading to bed. Until tomorrow, thanks for the prayers. I almost crashed into an idiot Audi driver today who thought he'd dart in front of me. I missed him by a hair and your prayer. So until tomorrow, sleep tight.

Geez I wish this trip was taking you through TN and your way back to MO but I know we are "over" just a bit too far.
Stay safe through the TX weather. It's been rough out there....
Still praying for your safe journey.

Drive safely. Glad that you are safe. You can't trust Audi drivers.
