Today I drove from Albuquerque, NM to Joplin, MO — a distance of some 800 miles.
800 miles a day and pretty soon you’re racking up real mileage — and not just on the car. I’m simply exhausted. Closing my red, sore, eyes makes me see moving traffic.
I’m still hoping against hope that the “clipper” storm in the Midwest peters out, but I’ll find out tomorrow.
By the way, I took a picture when I crossed the border from Oklahoma to Missouri. It looked interesting, but I had no idea it was this wild!
I wouldn’t have believed it had I not seen it on my own camera.
I mean, my eyes may play games with me, but surely cameras don’t lie.
MORE: Finally, some music to die for!
Here’s another great oldie I heard earlier in the car that’s still ringing in my ears.

(It’s “Adam & Eve” by The Mystics, recorded in 1958. Paul Simon joined the group a couple of years later.)
