Go west young man....go west

Well boy howdy, the old Billy Bob is run slap out of stuff to talk bout. But that's happened in the past and I end up writ'n a book.

Yesterday I got all excitis (excited) bout load'n up the rest of my junk for the 1400 miles trip to Deming. That excitement didn't last very long. I got plumb sick. No not puk'n sick, but BP and energy sick. I said, "what the hell, why ain't I got no energy"? That weren't but bout 30 minutes of run'n back an' forth to the garage tote'n stuff to be deposited in "Sally da house" when I said that. Check my blood pressure and sure enough, it a little high....144/85. Ain't no way to fix that but to take one my pills....what I been conserving for the last month. Conservation don't always pay off ya know. Kind of like conserv'n water in the middle of the desert. Ya don't take no shower till ya smell like a goat. Or ya only wash dishes when ya run out of forks.

Attempted to check the tire pressures on "da house" yesterday. Holy crap, this ain't gonna work. The pressure thingy don't fit....gotta do something. Me and Robert work for bout a hour or so put'n them flexible extension thingys back on the tires. Yes....now I can check the pressure. Will they leak??? Only time will tell.

Still ain't decided how I'm gonna go to Deming. Am I gonna stop off somewheres and smell me some flowers? Or am I gonna go straight through do'n a hunnert mile a hour? I hate hav'n to make these kind of decisions on an empty stomach. But I'm ready either way. Wanna ride along???

  3. Make decisions on an empty stomach? Too bad you're so far away - I could give you a big slab of cherry chocolate cake! If it was me going from GA to NM I'd do it at a hunnert miles an hour and skip all the roses in between. I like New Mexico but I don't know about this time of year.

    1. But, but, but what about T..T..Texas? I gotta go through Texas to get to New Mexico and you know how beautiful Texas is.

    2. Texas has never been beautiful when I've been there. Maybe I should say I've never been to the beautiful part of Texas. I've spent a couple of weeks in the Dallas/Ft Worth area years back, and had to drive around Dallas a couple of times since, which certainly isn't the beautiful part. I keep hearing that the hill country is beautiful so I guess I should give Texas one more chance one of these days.

    3. Come south of that area, you'll find it. My hill country. It's about 3 or 4 hours down.

  4. 144/85 - I would be satisfied with that. I think my doc wants to add just my meds so he has me keeping a daily log for the next three months.

    1. Even though 144/85 ain't what I would call extremely high BP, it's much higher than what I'm used to. It does make a difference.

  5. I have a feeling that the answer will hit ya right between the eyes before long!

    Right now Texas ain't too bad, for those of us that got a little rain! Cooler than it has been, that's for sure!
