We like serendipity

I had planned to leave Oliver Lee yesterday, pick up the replacement for the compromised credit card a friend so graciously forwarded to me to General Delivery at USPS in Alamogordo and head westward once again. But I couldn't confirm online that it had arrived on time and since I didn't need to leave on any schedule, I signed up for one more night here and took a nap. We like naps too.

In time I opened my eyes and what should they slowly focus on way out beyond my toes, filling the aperture of the windshield - two horizontal red stripes. Could that be the rig I think it is?

I think that's Skylark

Yep, that's Skylark. Skylark is a well known Lazy Daze RV, home of Andy Baird, moderator of the Yahoo Life With A Lazy Daze RV discussion group. Andy is the guy largely responsible for my being here today and it's about time he knew it.

We like serendipity.

That was yesterday

Today Andy's friends Kate and Terry pulled in with Cholula Red and set up across the way. I may be here for a while.

This is Easy

Naturally, the common people don't want war, but after all, it is the leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. This is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country.
