This post is from February 2014, when I thought $3.05 a gallon was a pretty good price for gas.
Today, it's $1.79. "Almost makes me want to drive to town more often," she said never.
Me: Get dressed, Smooch. We're going to town.
Smooch loves to go to town. I do not. Taking her along for the ride
makes the trip a little less painful for me, and it's definitely the highlight of her week.
Smooch: OMG! You're going to let me drive today?
Me: Stop being such a grump and smile for the nice people, Smooch.
Smooch: No. I thought you were going to let me drive.
We stopped at the first cattle guard for a portrait.
Then we stopped at the mailbox. Isn't this exciting? Smooch thinks so.
Then we stopped at the gas station. Regular is $3.05 a gallon here,
which doesn't seem too bad in the grand scheme of things.
The man at the pump next to us said, "Your dog looks so happy in there." To which I smiled and said, "She is."
Smooch is one of the lucky ones...many dogs in New Mexico do not get to ride in the cab.
Our next and last stop was – you guessed it – the Walmart.
Me: Don't you worry, Smooch. I'll be back as fast as I can.
Our errands were done and we stopped at the same cattle guard for another picture.
Funny how the sky is always bluer the closer we get to home.
