A vegetarian in the Southwest

To be honest, I started writing this blog post a few days ago in a text file and for whatever reason, I forgot to save it and I was forced to restart my computer so I lost the draft completely. I don't have the energy in me to rewrite everything word for word. I will… Continue reading A vegetarian in the Southwest

Pilots need to use the restroom, too

This is a story about how pilots are human, too. They also need to use the restroom during flights just like the rest of us.

Roswell: they sure do believe

When Bryce planned our Southwest road trip, he knew from the beginning that he wanted to stop in Roswell. "Just for the morning?" I asked. "Yeah, we'd be there just for an hour, tops," he replied. OK, sure. Might as well go check out the home of the "UFO incident" since we'd be in the… Continue reading Roswell: they sure do believe
