To finish up Thursday's adventure I need to recap my visit to THE THING (click on the link to learn more about the THING) Actually the roadside attraction is pretty typical of many along the highways of America. A huge gift shop filled with authentic Native American artifacts (most of which point to the fact that there is a large tribe of Native Americans living in China). Once your shopping itch is cured and for the paltry sum of one dollar US you can head through the swinging door and into the world of wonderment. Actually there were some things that made the dollar investment worthwhile. Here's what I saw.
Arriving at THE THING
A section of the museum with antique vehicles.
Early RV power.
An old roadster.
A military truck.
Some really old guns.
A little desert 'pider.
Lots of wood carving.
and THE THING
Hard to photograph.
Interesting little rocking chair.
A pioneer room.
And more of the room.
Lots of driftwood art and some old rusty stuff.
Altogether I would say I didn't come away thinking I had just wasted a dollar. So I guess it was a successful visit to THE THING.
On another positive note the gut reduction continues to meet with success, today I moved to the last notch on my belt without turning blue and on the diabetes front I stopped taking the diabetes medication the first of May and this mornings reading was 97. Weight loss and walking seems to be doing the trick.
Today we have an afternoon ballgame and then I've given myself the rest of the afternoon off. Moving west tomorrow.
