Looking at the large picture I was going to ask wnat that fuzzy thing at the top was, but looking at the thumbnail again, I realized it's a badge clip. A case where lower resolution actually helped. Very Happy

Will we see a new chapter when you get back? Wink OK, ok... so Blue Flames isn't yours, just hosted on your site Smile . I'm so backed up waiting for various authors' chapters that I'm going back to paperbacks for a while.

*chuckle* I suppose it says something about my interests that my main item of interest in Roswell would be the Goddard museum that, I seem to remember, was there. Roswell is where, in the 1030's and 40's, Robert H. Goddard conducted his rocket experiments and managed to develop very similar basic designs to what the former VfR did in Pennemunde.

Day 1: "Base Camp" (the house in abilene)

2:00 a.m.

We arrive and are greeted by the nateives.
A strange bunch they are. All shapes and sizes and all carring silver containers of strange liquids. As not to offend the natives I accepted a container of the liquid and began to drink it. To my supprise its not bad.
The natives apparently have demesticated the local wildlife and one of the creatures climbed into the back of our vehicle at there command.
The elder female that first greeted us that I call "little dimples" dew to her size will be our guide on the remainder of our trip. But for now we rest. Maxx being the courious one ventured into the dwelling to find a place to rest first.
That dern cat is always sleeping.

9:00 a.m.

We wake up and are escorted to a nearby village that has sum folk like ourselves. We are fed at a local diner and Maxx goes into a local store to grab sum light reading matrial. I return to base camp with the little dimples to transfer our luggage into the natives transportation. Maxx stays in the village with the elder male that I will call "Dody" to learn lere language and to skip out on moveing lugage... dern feline.
Apparently the natives prefer to keep there lugage all in one container... well the couples do. That bag reminds me of the school bag I carryed for Professer Kayngi's class. only much softer.
I recieved news that Professer J. Price will not be accomaning us. Apparently the university pulled his funding on this expidention.
I was at least glad to see my old friend agine.

Day 1...

Volunteered to drive to Abilene... somewhere in Texas... the place is so darn huge.

Around halfway there, Tex was snoring, and i was laughing whenever he'd choke on his own spit, and kinda mumbled, it was amusing, but then i got sleepy.

We always stop at a Love's gas station either for a subway sandwich, some drinks maybe a tinkle, in this case, we got BEEF JERKY!!! *yus* some energy drinks, and a wizz in the electric fence.

After the first sip of them drinks, everything seemed to move at 1 mile per hour.

I can't remember much, other than i woke up today around 9 am.

Coors 101 kindly provided a copy of Chateu du Mont Criste. Or The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dúmas.

And i stayed with the elder Harms to sandblast the Dutch Oven, it was fun, and i discovered a new way to exfoliate my skin.

We stopped by a hardware store, always the curius one, i found some long flexible poles that looked like the ones used by the Blue Man Group to make the whoosh sound in their songs... but i remembered the infamous stunt i pulled at walmart last week... where i accidentally hit myself in the nuts with a pool noodle... so yeah. Put the pole back. please.

Drove by a friend's house, Bryce is his name... he reminds me of Hawkeye Spittoon from Dallas. Fish knows him, pretty decent for a white folk.

Oh yeah, came home, and Tex was drinking a BUD LIGHT... what kind of self respecting redneck drinks Bud?

Yeah... thought so too.

ok, time to put some anti bacterial ointment on my face, that sandblasting session left me feeling stingy.

Hey at least we got the dutch ovens ready for the peach cobbler.

I rock.

End of Day 1
After another tribal ceremony we finely turn in for the night...
As I now contanplate todays events into this explorers log Maxx resumes reading his book that he got from the village. During the tribal ceremony I sumhow upset the elders youngest daughter. I will not go into detale but the feeling is mutal between us. The tribe that I know know as dafokawwes all turnd in earlyer than us for the trip ahread. From what I gather we shall be travleing 4 hours from base camp then another 3 from there.
I al supprised there wagon like carrage could hold all our luggage and equipment.
I would continue with todays but I find myself drousy. I suspect btampering with the food. Eather way I shall turn in for the night. leaving with a Vacation Hiatus status.

Day 2

We left base camp arround 8 a.m.
Little dimples continues to entertain us with her music... the sounds remind me of lemar monkies being set ablaze and attacked by crabs.

Dody keeps teaseing Maxx abot mixing up lemons with limes... althou its an honest mistake when in a forin land. The elders youngest daughter that I have come to know as "Lil Beeh" the nickname of one of my 3rd cousins. Lil Beeh is now speaking with me mildly but there is still tention in the air.

1:00 p.m.
We finely arrive at our half way point earlyer than predicted. An hour early. While little dimples and dody get us rooms at the local inn.
Strange town this is. Apparently when I was napping on the trip how ever much I could with that racket we had crossed the border into the country of what I can translate NuMaxico. The roads are fare and the locals dont look to bad them selves...

Maxx went upstairs to our room and found a present on his bed when he got out of the bath. Little dimples had left a note on the bed with a package of earplugs. I could not read the language but knew what it said. I am mocked by the tribe from my first night...

We had steaks at the local establishments and here I sit in the back of the Inn's pub wrighting in my journal. I suspect the next few days I will not be able to wright dew to the ammount of work that needs to be done. but I shall wright as soon as I can about the days to follow.

Ahhh youth.

As i dwell further into the delicius book the Harm's kindly provided, i can't help but to realize how much of a good book it is, Kay you done it again.

Tex is weird. But its fun, we just had a fart contest in the room, no resulting injuries where recorded, but i guess that, if we had a sound recorder, we may have been able to use the samples for guitar tuning.

Laid in the hotel's spa for about 20 minutes, then dipped in the pool, the temperature shock was interesting, i did it several times, just to see what happened.

For some reason i think that cell phones must be some kind of.... life preserving things... or even more addictive than frak* heroin, i've never seen anyone attached to one for so long in my life.

Interesting but amusing story of the day...

You know Lance Armstrong? a real Texas hero... well... story made short, Tex's mom almost ran over him.

Best trip ever.

period.

Ok, my gut tell me that the hospitality suit has food, and Tex will pay when he goes to sleep.

MWAHAHAHA! Pass the broccoli >Smile
