Today’s challenge is to find a random photo (without really looking) to post. Then make up some bullshit (or truth) about it.
Cousin Itt from the Addams Family?
The photo was actually taken at the Salton Sea a few years ago whilst on a road trip to Palm Springs. It just cracked me up standing there looking headless.
Did you know palm trees are not really trees? They are more closely related to grass than trees. There are all kinds of scientific explanations that bore the crap out of me. Trees produce bark. Palms to do not. They are covered with a weird spongy material. I’m sure the weird spongy material has a name, but I really don’t care. Science lesson for the day. Over.
I spoke with Anneke this morning. We are planning a nice road trip when she comes to visit. So far, we are covering Dana Point, Catalina, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs. Exciting! She is planning the itinerary. She does that well and enjoys the challenge. I just want to GET THE HELL OUT OF DODGE!
The weather has turned cool. We know it’s approaching winter when we think about wearing socks in the morning.
It’s tough living in paradise. (not a random photo)
Off to the salt mines.
