Standing on a Corner Down in Winslow Arizona

October 16, 2006 @ 8:01 pm | Filed under:

I think I am now on a mission to title every other post with song lyrics. Just so you know.

I haven’t actually stood on any corners in Arizona yet, though. After our Hair-Raising Adventure, which cannot be described with thumbs alone and must therefore wait until I reach the New House (hint: it involves vomit, plane tickets, and a pack of junkyard dogs), all I could do was deposit us in this hotel, which has plenty of corners but not the kind you stand on.

I suppose I should be glad we made it 2,417 miles before anyone threw up in the car.

Before that, though: Loretto Chapel (breathtaking despite the touristy entrance fee), Sandia Crest, and the NW NM visitor’s Center (possibly the cleanest bathroom in America and a cool video on volcanoes).

    Oh, no! I don’t like the sound of the junkyard dogs! I’d take vomit in the car over that …. But, you’re almost there!

  2. Mary G says:

    isn’t there a song about junkyard dogs, too? Maybe instead of writing books, you could start writing song lyrics — especially after this trip!

    Hang in there — you’re almost to the Ocean….

    Vomit in the car. My car-sick son does that sometimes. Oh, Blech, blech, blech! You need Febreeze and lots of it. Blech!

    Oh dear! I hope things calm down. Loretto Chapel with the Staircase? It’s a shame it’s a touristy place now…but I really want some day to see that. It made such an impression on my mother when she saw it as a young girl.

    It’s a line from a Jim Croce song: “…bad, bad, Leroy Brown, baddest man in the whole [dang] town. Badder than old King Kong, meaner than a junkyard dog.”

    Oh dear, oh dear. I hope you all had a restful night! You can do it — not much further now!

    The cleanest bathroom in America has been discovered

    Just in case you were wondering….

    I think you’ve all done very well making that long of a trek. Just think if you had five children who all had major car sickness. 🙂

    California, here (you) come! We’re super excited to finally meet you all in person! God bless you on this final leg of the journey.
