MOON AND TWO YÉÍ

I’m having computer issues tonight, so there won’t be much in the way of words. Hasta mañana. Or, in Navajo, Näkemiin.

 

SLOW NIGHT IN MEXICO CITY

SLOW NIGHT IN MEXICO CITY / iPhone 6+ / Snapseed / FrontView

Late again. Missed that old midnight deadline. Came home from a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends at our daughter Kimberley's and got caught up in a project that I had started earlier in the day. Didn't realize how late it was getting until suddenly it was four minutes to pumpkin. Oh, well! I guess it won't hurt anything if two of my posts show the same date.

Late, too with my wish for a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I leave you with a favorite quote that I find appropriate not just for this one day, but for all days:

Let there still be, to the last, gratitude, unbounded, heatfelt gratitude, for having been granted a spell in this world of wonders.

J.M. Coetzee / Age of Iron


Hasta mañana.

Pity the poor, dreary eyed night manager who has to deal with tired, irritable travelers, determined to get the lowest possible price at all hours. You still see these little mom and pop motels, built, probably, in the 30s or 40s. Many are now owned by immigrants from the Indian sub-continent. Just like their cousins, the chains, though, no matter how many stars; they all serve mainly to increase my appreciation of Betsy.

My own last night in a motel was in a pretty nice Palm Springs motel about three weeks ago. The next morning, as I schlepped my gear down three floors, it occurred to me that I had not slept as well as in Betsy, the gym showers I frequent are all as good as or better than in the motel, and I nearly always manage to find much better wifi connections. It did have a private balcony with a view mainly of rooftops, and I only had a brief chance to enjoy it. with Betsy, I get a choice of views, in many directions, and changeable on a whim!

TV has become more of a nuisance than something to look forward to at the end of the day, leaving the swimming pool, which I never seem to have time or inclination to use, and the one real advantage, a laundry room. I still had to go find change, though, and when you figure in the cost of the room, that was one expensive set of clean clothes.

Oh, yeah, I slept through the “free” continental breakfast. I don't think I missed much, though. Betsy is definitely the way to go from now on for Ol' John Juanderlust!
