Ruthie On The Road, Update
-ALL PHOTOS BY RUTH RADER-
I spent quite a bit of time on the road, from Christmas Eve up until last night. I snapped the photo (above) when I was sitting behind the driver on a westbound bus in Idaho. (What?! "Westbound"?? Just where are you now, Ruthie?) Wouldn't you like to know? *Smile*
I like that photo so much that I didn't even try to edit it. It's one of the very few shots that I've ever
taken that I like just the way it is.
It's been quite an adventure, scooting around Utah.
I especially enjoyed eating biscuits and gravy while in my bare feet and jammies at Karen's house in Sandy, Utah. I also loved my mini-vacation at the Super 8 (which I highly recommend) in South Jordan, Utah. The room included a big, comfy, overstuffed rocker and a very nice flatscreen, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and other perks for a reasonable price. It is a hotel with interior corridors that are great to use when doing laundry.
I left the hotel yesterday with my friend Lisa, who lives with her family in Provo, Utah. We made a mad dash through the morning rush hour traffic to make it to the first bus on time, in downtown Salt Lake City. In the middle of everything, Lisa stopped for gas and then the darn pump quit. After a few crazy minutes, she got her rig fueled and brought me to the front door of the bus, right on time.
It was just too cold to hitchhike, yesterday! So I rode buses back through Ogden, Utah to Pocatello and Mountain Home, Idaho to...well...where I am now.
And now, today is all about thanking my friends, Karen and Lisa, for everything. You both are superwomen in your own right. I'm very thankful that I met you both.
Yeah, yer not too bad for a couple of jack mormons. ;-)
