My reflections this morning are of a whimsical nature. When we drove through the Mojave desert and Antelope Valley the other day, I thought about my blogger friend Graham, who blogs from Namibia. He travels frequently and on his travels he runs into all kinds of wonderful and creative expressions by the people of Namibia, be it road signs, farm signs, old abandoned trucks that have been redone into flower pots, and so much more. Of course he also runs into antelopes and a variety of wild animals and birds, as well as donkeys, horses, kids, and dogs of every shape, size and color. As we drove, I thought wouldn't it be fun if something or someone were to show up by the side of the freeway! Antelopes are long gone from here, but maybe a fun sign or something. And then I remembered this truck, which looks identical to the African ones you may see on Graham's blog. I found it a few years ago on the side of California Highway 58, the road that leads from the desert to our town. So I'm posting it again, just for fun!
You can find Graham's blog here:
