Come Join Me...


........for several doses of boring, a, splash of water, some KFC and a burst of Hollywood!!




Let's get down to brass tacks and do the exciting stuff first, shall we?




When Grandma J posted last, she was in Las Vegas New Mexico....anticipating an early morning departure to Albuquerque to meet up with her favorite person in the entire state of New Mexico.






 Now I get why the call New Mexico The Land of Enchantment!   HOLLYWOOD!!

I have been trying to rendezvous with this beautiful lady for eons. Last year I was planning a road trip to Denver via Albuquerque, but it fell through.  I was so disappointed, and Hollywood was breathing a sigh of relief too.


We had a nice meet up at Starbucks. It was a perfect morning to sit out on the patio and get to know each other. Well, I think Hollywood had Grandma J's number ages ago, but Grandma J found Hollywood to be very bright, funny and witty.

PJB and Crusty were both crying like banshees when Grandma J got back in the car because they didn't get to meet Hollywood.

Lets get to the boring, with little commentary because this wifi Grandma J is using cost by the hour! Did you know that anything that keeps you in your room isn't free when you're at a hotel with a casino? They no longer have coffee in the room either....it's free in the casino though.









This is what half of the 512 miles were like between Albuquerque and Laughlin NV.






Again, and just so we don't get confused, someone had a sign that said, "this is not paid for with stimulus dollars".





Here we are, crossing into Arizona, which looks like New Mexico




Flagstaff.....I love this place more than anywhere else. Going too fast to get a good pix.




Crossing the Colorado River, arriving in Laughlin Nevada.




Harrah's....where Grandma J lost her arse  stayed.Now on to CA.

Safe travels, my friend.
