Ruthie On The Road, Update

The doctors gave me more bandages and medicine and put me in a cab back to the shelter.

I stayed in Denver and recuperated for four days before taking a cab back downtown and boarding a Greyhound bus to Grand Junction, Colorado.

There I checked into a Motel 6 for two more days before walking back up to the ramp and sticking out my thumb.

I didn't get very far that day but I did discover a VERY NICE motel in a quiet little town on the Colorado border.

The lady there, who ran the place, reminded me of a stereotypical Italian grandmother.

And for $42.00, she put me in a large, comfortable room with a full bath, a 27" TV, a microwave, refrigerator, large, fluffy towels, carved wood furniture and a king-size bed.

I picked up the phone, ordered pizza, salad and an ice cream sundae and soothed my burns in the tub.

I liked it there so much that I ended up staying for three days.

And with this post, I now catch up to THIS one.
