We left Ozona,TX this morning... Stopped for lunch At a Micky-D's along the way. When we left we almost walked into a big whirlwind.. It was throwing junk everywhere, MacDonald's trash, spinning around all over. I could feel the sand hitting my face, then It went on across the street... I wanted to get a photo but wasn't fast enough, getting the camera out!!
Man..... Texas is a wide state. We spent two days crossing it...
Finally, we got through it and went through El Paso ... There are some beautiful places there and some real shabby places....I got a few photos going by.....
OK, not long after passed the State line of New Mexico... First stop was a potty break. Phew! Oops! Back into potty places. The first rest stop was beautiful... It had a courtyard & a fountain. (photos below). Only one draw back... See sign in photo.
I say, you tell them & we will get searched... Our car is packed to the gills.. I could just see us taking all that crap out & trying to put it all back... As we get closer Vern sees an officer with a dog.. who going crazy! We decided to just wait to see what he's going to ask. The car in front of us goes right through... Now our turn, the officer says " OK ...thank you Sir" & off we go.. As we pull out, we see two Spanish guys pulled to the side, being searched... Mind you, being search by Spanish Cops... So Spanish cops are profiling, Spanish guys!!! Looking for drugs!...lol
So all our sweating about fruit was in vain... They were looking for DRUGS.... We also noticed that all the cars they let right through were old White couples.... Is that considered profiling????? Then not far down the road the two guy they stopped came flying by... Hummmm, were they clean or did they pay them???
