#WOMBATSDOAMERICA 2015 Day 23
Blogging our recent US trip day by day, a month after the event.
2nd December – Snow
We awoke to bright sunshine bouncing off white snow, and the wide Missouri in the distance. A cheerful, smile-making experience after the adventures of the day before, ploughing through a dark blizzard across America. All was calm, and the blue sky promised at least some warmth, and a recuperative day.
We spent some time photographing the brightness, following deer tracks in the virgin snow, and playing with the dogs, Ranger, Sam and little Cha Cha. We made short trips to Al’s Oasis, and over the bridge into Chamberlain, where we bought a pretty brooch for Mombat. The shopkeeper remembered us from last year, when we’d bought my mum a necklace there. Friendly people live in Chamberlain.
We rested goggling at American television – there was news of another mass shooting, but also bad soaps which (to my shame) I started to get into, a cookery show which involved contestants cooking dishes while riding and pulling a rickshaw, and the oddest ads. I was fascinated by the side-effects on ads for drugs. “May cause blindness and death”, “If erection lasts for more than four hours see a doctor” Blimey.
