First, on the fourth, WE went to Judge Roy Bean’s place. You western fans might know him as “The Law West of The Pecos”.I will make another entry covering that.
My last appointment was delayed by a text message from the Dentist. ‘I have an Emergency could I see you an hour later.’
So an hour later we met with her she seemed subdued a little. Sherry said, “I know you are excited about your vacation on Padre Island next week.”
“No, that will not happen now, my father passed away last night, He lives 8hr drive into Mexico. My sister is flying in from Dallas and we will leave out. But first,” then her smile came back, “Let’s get this dental work done.”
Me in the dental chair with my dentist.
The work got finished I am very happy. She took a personal check for the work. and we left. This time coming out of Mexico there was a big back up and we waited an hour in line.
Thisis what I-10 looked like once we reached it, I told Sherry I love driving out here:
The trip was going great the land and territory looked like this:
Have you ever thought that most places in the world you can never see an entire train at once? Well out west you can. The above is not a good example because the RR track was too close to the road. But when it is about a mile off the road you can see the engines at the front and the engines at the rear.
All of a sudden the traffic stopped. You know when you see two miles up the road and no end in sight of the jam, something bad has happened. It was an hour of so before we reached the wreck.
The first thing was saw was a Tractor and trailer facing us:
Another Tractor & Trailer just behind facint the other way. THEN:
That is a car under a flatbed smashed like a can. We could not find out what had happened, but it would be a miracle if the folks in the car survived.
We had a good trip the rest of the way, but we knew it was going to be late getting here to El Paso. Near midnight and we dislike setting up after dark. But we managed.
The land scape nearing El Paso:
I was hoping you could see the mountains in the back ground. They were hazy and beautiful.
I like these barren mountains, they are so rugged they are pretty.
I saw a dog in the sky, but by the time Sherry was able to get the picture, It was Pinocchio.
It is late here after midnight, near one am. To morrow off to New Mexico….
Thanks for coming along.
PS: I got these two vehicles as we were leaving Del Rio. (Excuse the mis-spelling, I know, you always do! LOL)
I nearly missed them and haven’t dressed the photos up. tired.
