In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.

The Irony Of It All

The space shuttle Endeavor being wheeled through Los Angeles and past the famous Randy's Donuts sign at 805 W. Manchester Ave. in Inglewood. You can't make this stuff up. The space shuttle meets the donut hole! More information here. You gotta read it! I especially loved this quip at the end of the Wikipedia site:  

"In the film 2012, the donut sign can be seen rolling through the streets during an earthquake."
