This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. It is a long way to the New Mexico place. A really long way. Why? This Texas place is ridiculously big. Bigger than my attitude and that’s big. But not bigger than my handsome. You already knew that despite the tail that always seems to try and hide my face. Seriously.
Now. We know that this Texas place is hot. We know it has a cactus or million that bite your butt. We also know that it has wine and rivers and streams and bluebonnet flowers that should grow butter as per Deputy Digby Pancake’s suggestion. It has some things I am not too fond of, but things I love. But alas, I am going to have to leave them in Texas.
So although Texas is a place I would dearly love to be, I have to leave. When I woke up this morning and looked out the window of the Big Blue Treat Wagon RV, I was sad that we were getting closer to crossing the state line. I thought about all the other states we have left behind and how many states I have looked out this same window at.
Did I appreciate all those states and even all of the things that weren’t my favorite? What do I remember about each one? The good or the bad? It is kinda like that with exes. And well, all the states we have visited are now my exes. I changed my number though, so don’t try and call. That means you New York. That means you Georgia. And all the rest.
It seems that we don’t know what we’ve got till its gone. That is a true story. It’s almost like when you see my corn dog tail and I walk away and you realize you may never see another one. And you won’t.
I want you to think about something. Because that is my job. Look out YOUR window today. What if this moment…right now…was the last time that you would see this view? What if this was the last time you would hear that bird or see that tree or see your house? Would you remember the bad times or the good?
Our schedule since last May has been full of many goodbyes. And every week when we wake up in a new place, it is exciting. But the goodbyes are hard. And we want all our exes to know…all the states and the rescues so far on this trip…39 to be exact, that we remember you. All my exes don’t live in Texas for sure.
Everyone look out your window today and tell us what you see. What would you miss? What would you remember? And try not to think of my corn dog tail. I know it distracted you. Kinda like exes. They try to get ya back. But sorry Texas, we have to go. New Mexico is calling. It has my new number.
We hit the road today for another 300 miles in another Texas camp. Then we should be in New Mexico by Wednesday! We can do this!! Are you ready to come with us?
