Name:
Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

On the Road 3

On the Road 3
We stayed in Soccoro an extra day because Anna came down with the flu. A couple of days later it was Frank’s turn. Blessed be Immodium AD. In each case it only lasted a day. Weak, we journeyed on. This is written in Kingman, AZ where we will visit the Andy Devine Museum tomorrow morning. Andy Devine was not my favorite western sidekick but he is well-remembered for his gravelly voice and his rotundity. He sure acted in a heap of western films from my childhood and youth. I’m anxious to see what is in the museum. Then we’ll go on to Las Vegas. To gamble?? No, we’ve already done that on the horses and dogs in Phoenix. To watch the Breeder’s Cup on television. Two days of horse racing. Supposedly the best horses currently running. And Zenyatta takes on the boys. We wish her the best and we’ll see how that comes out. You go, girl. More from Las Vegas – maybe.

"Wait for me, Wild Bill!" I'd no idea there was an
Andy Devine Museum, but it sounds like a cool place. Hope they let you take photos.

I'm enjoying the reports, Frank. I'm eager to hear about the museum.

Hope you mentioned that the Narrows Bridge now has a twin.
