There’s a place called “Pelon’s Tex Mex on the southwest across from Stubbs on Red River between 8th and 9th.

I was checking my five dollar Lotto ticket when my husband walked into the room. He told me that even if we won (I bought the ticket) that he didn't know what to do with 65 million dollars and that I could buy the cheaper tickets that had smaller payouts. I explained that I purchased one five dollar ticket for Friday night which was up to 65 million this week but was won by someone else and a three dollar ticket for both Wednesday and Saturday which is a different game than the Friday's ticket, that I spend eleven dollars a week and that I know what to do with the money.

I then informed him that I would start a few charities, mainly to help cats, children and other animals. He told me to carry on with my purchases. :lol:

Last night we ate our dinner on the deck of our motel (common space not our private deck) and had a bottle of wine with the meal. After we ate the owner came out with her own glass and joined us as we finished off our bottle. I retrieved my guitar from the room to sing some songs and she went back to her space and brought out a magnum of chardonnay and we had a little party. Her husband arrived from a Las Vegas weekend JU and we continued on. They wanted to keep it going beyond anything that made sense as we wanted to get up early to leave town so we turned down their offer of more wine bottles. Coincidently one of my tunes was Two More Bottles Of Wine from Delbert McClinton via Emmylou Harris. An excellent time was had by all.

Standing on the platform I saw a derelict kind of guy on the opposite platform fishing under a vending machine hoping to swipe out fallen coins with closed umbrella. It was a sad little scene until I noticed that this guy needn't be derelict but could possibly get a job with Cirque du Soleil. Now if I were the guy I'd need to sprawl out, lie down on the dirty platform floor to sweep the umbrella into the inch, inch and a half space under the vending machine. But this guy was an acrobat. He was standing with his back to the front of the vending machine and bent so steeply forward he was bent in half. Looking backwards between his legs he swept the umbrella with one hand and could see immediately what he had swept out. Sad to say he found nothing but it really wasn't much effort for this pretzel man. This free show made my day.

Today we stopped at the Hoover Dam since it was on the way and it is very large. The security is in place for such infrastructure so pulling up to the gate we were asked if we had any firearms. We said no of course and then one of the officers asked if that was a guitar case in the back. "Yes". Please pull over. So I had to lay it on the ground and open it up to reveal it really was a guitar and not a Thompson machine gun. :lol:

Over the past week or three, I've been wondering, why the shit do I still hang around this place? Why the steadfast refusal to bail?
Thanks to T-Berry for the wonderful reminder by way of his memories of Raph. This place is special, even if the only life left is in the archives. You people are special (well, most of you), even if the vast majority fucked off long ago.It's been so long for some of us, it's easy to forget or take it for granted. I'm glad I sent T-Berry a sad text today.

We had a cricket invasion in Austin yesterday - some weather phenomenon brought them in in droves and they were gathering round shopfronts on strip malls and turning walls into twitching black masses. Some businesses had to close until they had gone. We were in Target last night and there was a cricket hopping around in underwear and I took it outside. It jumped out my hands as I got outside and sat on my shoulder. The first thing I saw outside was a young boy jumping up and down on all the crickets going ‘look Mummy! Look!’ And she said yes dear, ha ha. Then she caught my eye and my shoulder and screamed pointing like Donald Sutherland in the Body Snatchers. Bizarre.

I should add - the cricket was in the underwear SECTION.

Last night in Williams, AZ we walked to a Thai restaurant and on our return to our hotel we passed a route 66 themed restaurant with a guy playing guitar to the people eating outside. I told him I had a guitar in my room if he was ok with me joining him but my guitar had no pickup like his. He said I could play his guitar if I wanted to play a song so I agreed and ended up playing Everybody Loves Me by Alejandro Escovedo. He liked it so much he told me I could play another song but I decided to pass although I really should have agreed. He was playing classIc rock tunes so I was happy to bring something else to the evening.

Today while eating at a picnic table at the Grand Canyon an elk with a large rack ambled by within about 8 feet of me. The weird part is he was on the pedestrian walkway coming from the local magistrate office and he continued on passed me staying on the walkway until it ended and then kept going into the brush/trees. We are not supposed to approach wild animals but I guess they can approach us. He didn't seem interested in me, just on his way to whatever.
