We won!

Hi everyone, I'm still not back home so I can't post photos of my trip just yet. I'm in San Diego were we saw Leslie Hall perform last night. Well, today is my birthday and I got the biggest, best gift I could possibly dream of... having Hillary win Texas!.... and Ohio, and Rhode Island! (Thanks Maria!) Chili and I absolutely LOVE El Paso! I can't wait to go back again! People had told me before I went that El Paso sucks... they couldn't have been more wrong! First of all the architecture is to die for! All from the 1900's with elaborate facades, gargoyles, columns, gilding, etc. Our hotel was incredible! Giant tiffany dome, crystal chandeliers etc. But the best thing about El Paso is the people...El Paso is the friendliest city I've ever been in... hands down! We made lots of new friends we look forward to visiting again! El Paso is Hillary country! We felt like we were in Hillary lalaland, and of-course the Hillcar was a hit!
I'll post photos tomorrow. Oh, did I say we saw Bill Clinton speak and he signed our Melmac plates?

Happy Birthday AGAIN.

I'm excited about hearing how cool El Paso is, as I haven't been there since hitchhiking through to Mexico in the early 70's, and I thought I might swing through on my way home this time.

Need to talk to you about it when I get closer.

It was a beautiful day... thankyou Chili, and thank you all my friends! How lucky am I to have such wonderful friends!
