The Lope: In Appreciation of Female Travelers

In Appreciation of Female Travelers

Today is Valentines Day, and Ace would like to send special thanks to some of the women who help him travel.

First, to one he hears his main driver call "mom." Here she is in Oatman, AZ on Route 66, discovering that feeding the burros is easier than getting away from them.

Mia, with the setting sun off the coast of the Baja peninsula, and sharing the fun of Route 66 at Eisler Brothers' General Store in Galena, KS.

Patsy at the Chinese Garden in Portland and the Mennonite Relief sale in Hutchinson, KS.

Barb, for always knowing where to eat and how to get there - seemingly within about ten minutes of her latest move - and little Natalie, for showing me that a child is not an "it."

Deborah, Dallas Googie guide extraordinaire and sci-fi maven, who's condo is a feast of art, science fiction, philosophy...and six cool cats named for Hitchhiker's Guide characters.

Rayne - our sarcastic Pre-Raphaelite dark faerie pirate wench.

And to all the women who comment, email, send suggestions and pose with Ace for us...Debra Jane, Angelique, Jo, Nicole, Stacy, Debbie, Elissa, Kathryn, Phyllis Renae name just a very few. Happy Valentine's Day! It may be a largely trumped-up holiday, but we love it anyway.

What a lovely tribute! I'm flattered to see my name on the list. I hope the dogs & I can finally meet Ace & you in the Fall. -- dj /

mom & mia?

I'm glad you have a wench in there. A list just isn't complete without a wench.
