bad news good news

Today we drove from Las Vegas home.  Ming drove us.  We stopped in Keene and saw the Cesar Chavez museum.  We looked at the Tehachapi Loop.  We didn’t take pictures–sorry.  I saw a tortise by the side of the road, but Ming didn’t see it.  We drank slurpees and didn’t talk much.  I dozed for […]

Nellis

This morning we demonstrated at Nellis Air Force Base.  There’s me, scared out of my wits. And there’s Ming, cute as can be, the peace faster.  He’s fasting one day for peace.  So we sang some songs, held hands, and stood around for peace for 15 minutes.  Then three guards and a cop approached us […]

antlers

Forgot to say we stopped on a flat big rock to take a rest on our hike, and there was a pair of twigs that looked like antlers there.  I held them to my head, and Ming noted how they were the perfect antlers for me.  I said I would stick them in my ears […]

First Creek, cute breakfast, six-winged angels

This morning we woke up at 4 in order to go hiking in the cool of the day.  It was great.  We saw the sunrise.  We went to a trailhead called First Creek.  We hiked about three miles total. Then we went to our friend’s house.  We woke him up.  His three dogs barked at […]

skip this if you don’t care about my flip flops

We almost bought some bright orange flip flops that were two dollars.  But we thought they would break in about five minutes.  So we bought these other black and green flip flops that were five dollars.  The end!

Las Vegas

This morning we served the hungry again then helped with the dishwashing.  We served bread, which is easy.  With a gloved hand, hand the person whatever bread they want.  There were some bagels today. Then we folded and taped NDE newsletters.  They’re pink.  I did it for about two hours, and Ming did it for […]

Ming and Laura-Marie’s Excellent Adventure

For me, when everything goes wrong – that’s when adventure starts. –Yvon Chouinard Well, we took off for Las Vegas and only made it 157 miles when BOB broke down by the side of the freeway out in the middle of nowhere.  We were on the phone with AAA for 50 minutes as they tried […]

my life in a list

1.  Ming and I had a conversation about what was blocking the pipe–the kitchen sink was plugged up.  I guessed a dead rat or a pot of gold.  Ming guessed hair and rice. 2.  Yesterday at Home Depot we used the self-check machine, and as we left I said hi to the worker who was […]

We’re planning a trip to Canada, just Vancouver and maybe Banff.  Any tips from any reader out there, what not to miss?  I ordered a book called City of Glass about Vancouver and want to look for guidebooks at the library.  Central library opens at noon. We’ll also get to meet two of my good […]
