Hotel Paintings

I'm at the point where every town we pass, I think "I could live there."

I'm at the point where every hotel painting I see, I think "That could be a good job for me, painting pictures of garden gates and checkered tablecloths."

I'm at the point where I want to do just about anything but sit in the car, or repack dirty clothes into my suitcase, or try to make my hair look decent. Scratch that one - I gave up on grooming a few cities back.

My daughter's roommate Libby said, "You two look amazing."

I think she means we look frightening.

I just smiled at a little girl in Starbucks, and she hid behind her mother's leg.

Hi both...been meaning to catch up ... how's things in 'God's own country'. Hope the economic turmoil hasn't sucked all the dollars out of the punters pockets and you're managing to upstage Ms Palin (god help us!)
Love and kisses Roy and Michelle xx

I gave up grooming in 1967. Now you know why my mother has never forgiven me.

anonymous, if only you knew! He is a dear cousin/friend of mine, with a penchant for writing dramatic messages...he'd told me months before that he would be there - it is so impossible to do personal calls & invitations on tour, and some people never figure this out. But he is family, after all - so he forgives me and I forgive him for his complaints.

Roy and Michelle, we'll be back soon! Kim and Rosie, thanks for offers of solace/grooming implements. It's our last night in America - I'm too inebriated to write an actual post. I can't wait to get home!

kids hide from me all the time. I don't know why.

Sometimes their dad's do too - with good reason! Love me a DILF...
