Driving Miss Dixie – Day 2 & 3

Posted on November 29, 2013 by Marna

photoWhile the drive to Blythe Wednesday was awful, it was still a smart decision instead of driving straight to Phoenix on Thanksgiving.  Dixie and I logged 157 miles and intended to eat and keep going.  But I got talked out of driving to 6000′ at night.  So, I drank more wine, ate turkey while Dixie flirted with five men that didn’t scare her.  The best part was the hotel – her first time in a king bed – and she behaved just like a child.  Jumped on it and flipped her toy up in the air and kept running into the pillows.
