The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

What to do?


Sinbad was acting odd and I wasn't feeling like driving on to the deserts further south all that much.  Should we continue on or head for home?  With this decision to be made on mind my that morning, I just kind of went through the motions of touring the museum.  Inside the lighting was not all that great for picture taking as you can tell from this photo of the Hopalong Cassidy bicycle - blurry.

One of these sold at a Bonhams auction for $4750

I think this stagecoach was in a John Wayne movie.


I stood here for quite awhile imagining Humphrey Bogart sitting behind the wheel.

I left the museum and returned to Sinbad asleep in the Little House on the Highway.
We decided to just head for home taking our time in doing so.
As it turned out that was a good decision.

  3. That is a wonderful car, I can see Bogie sitting behind the wheel with his sigaret....
    Glad you made it home in time for Sinbad. Have a nice Christmas together.

  4. Fantastic! The stage coach reminds me of two that were in the carport of a house we rented in Rennick Missouri while we were waiting for our house to get done being built.
    Hope Sinbad feels better!

  9. I remember seeing a bicycle with saddlebags in a store when I was a kid. Don't remember if it said Hopalong Cassidy or not.
    I hope Sinbad is okay
    Merry Christmas!
