Too long, too verbose, yada yada yada…

Ok already! Alright already! What the heck already? What is going on? How to please all?

Do not some of these folks that say things such “ I don’t like blogs that use the ‘I’ word all the time! ” Am I supposed to talk about them, the others, or personify the third tree down the wash as a human that talks to me, plays kick-the-rock and does hand limb stands? It is MY motorhome, MY dog, MY campsite, MY teeth or lack thereof.

Yadda yadda

Yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda!

Is it too much that I personify Barth the Motorhome, Annie the Dog, Darth the Scooter, Ranger the Truck? Am I supposed to chatter endlessly about what Jimmy Sue down the road is doing? Yeah, that would be interesting. He watches TV all day. Perhaps I should transcribe the discussion that Jimmy Sue has with his TV. I haven’t seen him outside in four days, but I don’t smell anything yet!

And then there are the ‘Reading your blogs is like reading the New York Times. Too many words, too verbose. Hell, I never get to the end, so why do you bother to write an end? Just stop in the middle”. But then what would the middle-jumpers do? They would be confused as to how to jump over a non-existent middle to get to the end.

There are three common things about these two complaining groups of people. A) they would not click on an Adsense ad if their life depended on it, and B) they would never, ever leave a comment or a shout, and C) …you are damn lucky – I forgot what C was.

I do hope that this was not too long – too short – too much about me or that third tree down the wash.

But I really do not care. It is not your blog, it is my blog, my journal, my opinionations and my rants!

[And I am sure that there is someone ready to point out that opinionations is not a word. It is in my private  Scrabble dictionary. I like creating perfectly good words. Of course I could have used opines.]

Desert sunset

I love sunsets in the open west. Sunrises too, except that one has to be up and about rather early.

This sunset is certainly not the prettiest that I have seen in the past week, but it is the one that was captured.

Love it or leave it.

Bacon lovers beware!

A couple of weeks ago I scooted to Blythe, CA and back, taking much of the day. Upon return it was learned that a fellow parked perhaps 1/2 mile from me decided to have breakfast of bacon, and after putting the bacon on the stove decided to go outside for a moment to chat with the nearby neighbors or some such action.

The net result is depicted in the following two images. I missed all the excitement. No one was injured.

Gives me remembrance of the times I that I have boiled the coffee pot and egg pan dry under similar situations.

Forty-five mi. ride to Lukeville

Today as scoot started away from the camp site, I flagged her down and grabbed a ride. We went to the Organpipe National Monument Visitor Center and onward to the MX border at Lukeville. Forgetting a passport, I did not cross the border.

I did ask about parking at the service station to walk across, for future reference. The attendant said to park it right beside the service station and he could keep an eye on it.

“Hello, Jose? Jesus here. Catch a ride up here, I have an easy mark for you! My usual percentage.”
