ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept.. 16

Nebraska, after my first observation from my motel, turned out to be beautiful. When I took Noodle for a walk at my motel, the smell of manurer was really strong. Why not. The motel bordered a field. Poor Noodle had to walk on stones, there was no grass. He managed but for what I paid for him at this motel, he should have had grass. But there was a magnificent sunset.It was blinding as it went down behind the corn field. My room had a picture window view of this field . That made up for the poorly designed dog walk. Today I saw a bill board for a store that carries anything that you need in camouflage. I also passed a Cabela's  main store, in Nebraska. If you have never seen a Cabela's catalogue, it has everything for a hunter, a fisherperson, a camper. One year, We surprised two of our Grandkids who were in  the car with us, driving back to Chicago from Estes Park, Colorado, by stopping at that Cabela's  . They were overwhelmed .Guns, Knives, archery, fishing equipment,tents. I still shudder at the experience. Noodle has learned that if he whimpers ,just a little, I will stop at a rest stop. I don't mind because it is a good reminder for me to take a break.  He just likes his new adventures. I did see one accident. I couldn't figure out which way the car had been going, but I don't think it was a fatal accident. That does give the rest of us a wake up call. I had a little challenge going from one Interstate to another Interstate to  another Interstate. But I did it. That really gives me confidence since I have such a poor track record with directions .  I just slowed down, read the road signs and did what I had to do to get over 5 lanes of traffic for a left entrance to I -70. Now we are tucked in for the night. The only place around that delivers is a Pizza place that I don't agree with politically or otherwise, so I am eating mini bell peppers, humus and Ritz crackers that I have in the car. It could be worse.I think that I am on Central time now. What ever that is.
