... flat plains where the hills can be seen on the horizon far, far away.

Today we visited 2 modest homes of George H W Bush. His first was in Odessa when he and Barbara moved back to Texas. They lived in the second home until George W. was 8 years old. It was a walk down memory lane of toys and decor that both Jim and I remembered from our childhood in the 50's. It is interesting to see family photos and to hear stories of the Bush children growing up and ...

The wrap up... Have been in Recovery mode! Our Thursday daytime was spent at the MOMA. Note to self, probably not the place to go during Spring Break, quite a crowd. A lot of groups of tweens and high schoolers, obviously on their school break learning trip. Also a new exhibit by Bjork adding to the crowd. We opted not to go to the Bjork exhibit because of the line to go in. We still saw a lot of lovely exhibits and the permanent collection has some of my favorites. Of course ...

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. We will have to see if I have wifi for the next few days. We are going to be out in the middle of nowhere...I think. =)

World famous and a must have while visiting Louisiana. Similar to Krispy Kreme, and just as delicious. Elvis only made one commercial in his lifetime. It was for Southern ...

At Sea

... up for cornball factor. At dinner, the waiter MADE us order two desserts each because its vacation yes? then we went to the tiny casino and lost some money and watched old white people dance. It got a little rowdy late. The term 'death by line dance" pretty much sums that up. A rocking boat maybe not the best place for the electric slide. Arrived in Casablanca at 5 am. Yes I was awake and watched the harbor police lead us ...
