I have been wandering a desert for the last week. It is very much like walking in sand, your shoes get filled and heavy. Each step just seems to be followed by one more step. The direction is vague and the destination  unknown.

And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”   Robert Frost

Ah, what a strange weird trip it has been.

It has been a very trying week. We went to Monahans Tx to get several spring sports photos done. With the oil boom on in west TX., if you can find a hotel, you just plain don’t want to pay what they are asking for a place to sleep. A room at a hotel that two years ago cost us $75 now is over $300. So we took our little hybrid  travel trailer and stayed at Monahans Sandhills State Park. A nice facility and it always allows me a reminder of my childhood days in West Tx.

We got there on Sunday for work on Monday. We awoke to the early morning sounds of high wind gust and snow, yes snow blowing in horizontal alignment with the wind. The day ended up being a total wait things out in the trailer and hope we did also go horizontal in the 70mph gust. All work was blown away with the wind.

Tuesday fared a little better and we got one photo session done in an albeit blustery afternoon.

I then awoke at 4:00 am on Wednesday with the flow blown flu. Everything for that day had to be canceled and I slept 20 of the 24 hours. I managed to muster enough to get the trailer ready for travel and hooked up on Thursday and we followed the wind a 100 miles to home.

I feel cheated, I hate to lose that much time, every year the inflation on time seems as disproportionate as motels in West TX.

The wind was a blowing but I never found an answer my friend.
