Met Up with Sighthound. by tucsonmike on 22 October 2006 10:50pm
 
She stopped in Tucson for the night with four of her Saluki dogs. (They are a lot of fun). It was a pleasure meeting her and I look forward to a continued friendship. She will be back on here Tuesday.

It must have been great meeting her and her lovely dogs.

That's very cool!

Hey, Mike, how far is San Antonio from Tuscon? Is it prohibitively far? I'm 95% sure I'll be visiting my son at Lackland AFB in early December.

Okay, please allow me to take that last question back. It's only 2 large STATES away. I'm so embarrassed.

Helen took me to a really good deli and I had a Reuben! And she was not creepy. :^)

LOL! Cori. San Antonio is a two hour flight from Tucson. I do have cousins there, however. I'll let ya know. I might have to use vacation time.
Well either a two hour flight or ten hour bus ride. I can stop in El Paso and see my friend. (Before she moves to Toronto to run off with the rock star).

Fab! A Palinite powwow, there's nothing better. I wouldn't trade my meetings with Soph, Thomas, Jake, Lyn, Tony, Phyll and Missy for anything :)

Got back home late last night. Racked up another 3,000 miles on my truck's odometer. I've travelled the American Southwest for over 50 years and yet its beauty never ceases to amaze me and the resiliency and humor of its inhabitants in dealing with an extremely harsh environment is always inspiring. The prize on this trip went to Joseph, a charming, if drunken, Navajo with a fascinating philosophical bent that I met in the parking lot of Earl's in Gallup, New Mexico. (For travellers, Earl's is a "must-see". It's a classic diner but Native American artists are invited to bring around their goods to the tables. Tourists can buy wonderful stuff for half what the traders charge and the Indians get twice what the traders pay them for the goods, a definite win-win situation and one of the most honest interfaces between Anglo and Native American cultures that I've come across.)

It was wonderful to meet Tucsonmike and Elaine in person. We had a great time at an Ethiopian restaurant; Tucson has definitely evolved from a "wide spot in the road" to a multi-cultural city.

And the salukis really enjoyed being able to romp in the Charton backyard (although Lucy, the cat, was NOT amused by this canine intrusion into her territory.)
