New Mexico to Texas

As you can see................... It has been a pretty uneventful day. After a fine start this morning, we made excellent time down interstate 40 heading toward Amarillo, TX
Somewhere just outside of Albuquerque, Teka made her big break of the day and promoted herself to riding in the front seat on Dad's lap. I guess that is OK, as long as she doesn't think she can ride on my muzzer!
And then just outside of Santa Rosa, we saw a whole line of cars like these driving along the freeway. Muzzer and Dad got all excited. Muzzer forgot to take photos so these are "borrowed" from a Route 66 website. This caravan happens every year, and it a real traffic stopper. Er, traffic slower, because we all had to get in line to drive around them while they waved and yelled at us. Sure were friendly folks in those funny cars
We went to the bank in Santa Rosa to sign some papers to make some money go "by wire transfer" to pay for the house in Tennessee. Me and Teka got to sit in the bank with Muzzer and Dad. Teka got us tossed out! She was very noisy. I apologized on my way out, and the tellers loved me.

We hope you are all having a good trip! Our pawrents drove all the way from Phoenix to Georgia. It took them 3 whole days. They are wishing you an "uneventful" trip. They say that's the best kind.

Stay safe!

Aire-hugs,

Gussie,

Ever the social fixer and smoother-over of Teka's faux paws! I bet those tellers were sad to see you and your money go!

Goober love,
