THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUTH:

All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER

And then she says to me, "Oh, stop your blubbering. So I'm leaving you for a woman - take it like a man! Besides, there are other fish in the sea."

So I'm going to the sea to see.

In this case, the "sea" being the Horse-A-Round merry-go-round bar at Circus-Circus in Las Vegas, Nevada.

But, your questions, your compliments, your outraged indignation - keep it all a-comin' and I will address your comments upon my return next Wednesday or Thursday. (Unless, of course, I don't return because I've won a million dollars and run off with a cocktail waitress, a Vegas showgirl, or some horse's ass.)

    Thanks for the good wishes. But I'm back, which tells you plenty about the 10 mil.

    Nah, I'm not really "always on the go" - it just seems that way because this is my second trip in just a few weeks time. But prior to this spree I hadn't been away on a "real" trip since May of 2009, and I probably won't go on another one until next Summer.

    In my old age I've found that 4 or 5 days at a stretch is allz I can standz. Used to be I could go "on the road" for 2 or 3 weeks straight. Now it gets old quick.

  3. I can go a few weeks away from home as long as I have comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, safe places to stay, and good food. Of course, that gets expensive so I don't do it that much. But I know what you mean. I used to just take off and sleep in my van or if I was hitchhiking, unroll my sleeping bag in a suitable place or stay with someone--it was almost like being homeless.

    That sounds like fun. I've enjoyed some really spontaneous, low-maintenance traveling as well... in my day. But "my" day has come and gone and I'd now rather relive the memories than relive the experiences.

    For me it's not so much about comfort, clean bathrooms and good food, but more just about wanting to get back to my "boring routine". I'm too old now for excitement and besides, the arthritis probably wouldn't appreciate a sleeping bag just laid out in the dirt in the middle of nowhere like in the old days.
