... in a town called brown wood where we bought new clothes at Walmart. Very tempted to buy an all American wardrobe of ****** patriotic flag tops but restrained and instead bought a pug mug shot top. Had ****** food and huge huge $2.50 milkshakes from sonic diner, a drive in diner, so American. One shake between us would be too much. Carried on driving into the night to austin eventually arriving at our new motel- the country inn where apparently gangsters live so had to keep our heads ...
... him for a gay guy. Also had a chat with a photographer who revealed she had brain damage and now meditates using photoshop or something weird.

Did a lot of stopping at historical markers, discovering that we were on the Pony Express trail all day. We also went through three Indian reservations, clearly delineated by **** everywhere. Oops, sorry, politically incorrect.
Anyway, no blog tomorrow or maybe the next since we're going to the Meredith State Park, not far from here that's on a huge lake, and pretty remote, so we're going to hang other there, since we're ahead of schedule.
