TEN THINGS I'VE LEARNED ON OUR WESTWARD TREK
(3115 miles and counting . . .)

10. You actually can groom your nails with a Swiss Army Knife.

9. You don't need reservations at the Grand Canyon if you have a persuasive husband.

8. I have no desire to eat bison.

7. Sandals with heels are inappropriate at the Grand Canyon.

6. Chocolates melt in the car. :-(

5. I have no desire to eat rattle snake.

4. Females require 5 times as many bathroom breaks as males. (I don't know why I never realized this before.)

3. Whoever invented the auto DVD player deserves to be filthy rich.

2. It is possible to memorize the words to an entire movie.

1. When chocolates melt in the car, smart husbands replace them.

Wow. You summed up your entire vacation in ten sentences, and we felt like we were right there with you. You must be a writer. GRIN.

I enjoyed it.

We stayed at the Hyatt in Santa Clara this weekend, and Sethy (my youngest son) told me on their trip through Nevada with their dad (at scary hotels) that they didn't have new soap to use in the showers. It was nice to have new soap (Do we get to use it?) he asked at the Hyatt.

Oh I'm still sick about it. LOL Can't wait to see you home, D, but enjoy every minute!

Oh man, Denise, we're going to have to educate you! Bison is delicious! It's like the tenderest beef you've ever eaten.

Kristin, we stayed at one dubious hotel. No, it was a motel. LOL There was no choice unless we wanted to drive another hundred miles through mountains in the dark.

Ane, I'm sure bison is delicious, but I have a mental block about certain meats. Don't even get me started on fish . . .

I can relate to the motel and the chocolates. We had reservations at a nice hotel in Albuquerque, but when the AC died in Gallup, NM, we forfieted the nice hotel and went for cheap in Gallup- yuck is all I have to say!

And the chocolates- ah yes, we stopped at Harry and David's on our way home for some yummy chocolate truffles, but they didn't make it. It was very sad. At least I had eaten half of them before they melted!! LOL
