Doh! They got me!

So, its another fun filled week of travel. Today on the way to Monahans, I got caught in a speed trap. Luckily, this Pineapple can be quite charming (and the fact that one of the Pineapple Cousins is a trooper doesn't hurt) so I was let off with a warning. Whew! I wasn't even going all that fast, just about 5 miles over the speed limit. I guess they like to set up the trap right about where the speed limit changes from 70 to 80 to get some good ones.

Monahans was quite uneventful and I didn't even see anything that was interesting enough for a picture. Boo hiss. On the way back to Odessa I saw several things but the camera was in the back seat. I did see the sign for the Monahans Sandhills Park. I remember going there as a child and having a picnic. I guess it is a great place for that if you like "sand"wiches. Oh, ha ha!

No worries, I should see all sorts of interesting things tomorrow when I go to San Angelo. I bet you thought I would be going back to New Mexico. Well, so did I. But things change ever so quickly in my world. Maybe I will come across a Concho while I am there. We can only hope.

There's a place in Texas where you're allowed to drive 80?

Slow down, Pineapple! We don't want crushed pineapple surprise!

Yes, in low population areas there are places you can drive 80. I was only going 75 in a 70 when I got pulled over. I was just keeping up with traffic.

Traffic?

OK. The other cars.

What's a Concho? And you know, you can uhm stop to take a picture. Taking a shot while doing 75 mph tends to make the photo a little blurry.

A concho is a shell. They found mussels in the river here and thought that the pearls they make might be of value. They are not. But if I see one, I will take a picture
