A little bit of this and a little bit of that. And, of course, a lot of Boston Terrier.

Day Two - or The Sacred Cow Does Texas
Okay, that's supposed to be the Texas star and various flags, including the state flag, in the background. What matters more? Picture quality, or that The Sacred Cow was there as well as Thelma & Louise?
We were there, we swear:
The day started out with me waking up before our alarm (which ended up being good, because I had forgotten to set it - I have no idea why that happened). We drove through Louisianna (on elevated highways above bayous-what an incredible road system.) up until about noon when we crossed over to the Texas stateline.
What a state this is (although a big one, as it will take us two days to get thru it!). Beautiful big sky and clouds:
And sights, (can anyone tell us what THIS might be, or mean?):
(I personally found this one to be the most intriguing, but haven't had time to look it up! You Texans are fantastic!)
And what is this place? We saw billboard, after billboard about it:
And then The Boston Lady and The Maven got a little bored and took weird pictures of themselves (hey, it was a long day!):
But, then we saw this:
Nice windmill shot by Thelma through the windshield. And then cornfield after cornfield:
We are in the outskirts of San Antonio tonight watching The American Idol final performances. Hey, priorities, people. Tomorrow we will get up a little later and then visit The Alamo before hitting the road again. We hope to end somewhere about 6pm (hey, we need to relax a bit before the Idol results!) which will probably be somewhere in Texas, a lovely, large, exhausting state.
This will be the view from our rearview mirror, but we will see a lot of different things in front of us! Mainly New Mexico and Arizona.
Thelma and Louise, out. (And The Sacred Cow)
P.S. special shout out to Orlando Grandma who provided us with some ""tip" money. Has already come in handy on Ferry, unexpected tolls and almost used at Harrah's in N.O We left disgusted that they wouldn't accept anything less than a five dollar bill - all those quarters I had!. Just proves the point that it doesn't pay to gamble. But we were able to tip pizza guy tonite!
