Pops

It rained and rained, and heavily rained during all of my drive through Oklahoma. Sometimes, you just need to make a stop. I turned off the interstate and drove east about five miles and found Pops.

Guess what Pops sells besides gas and souvenirs. At Pops I purchased some Coke.

Okay, they are not all Coca-cola, but in the Southern United States all soft drinks are referred to as cokes.

I also learned while looking at the souvenirs that I was on Route 66. If it was later, I could have a lunch at their diner.

Klingon Adventure

During Kur’Den’s recent travels through the Universe, he used his communicator to send back fascinating images from his adventure.   Below are the photos:

Since Kur’Den’s day of birth was about to be recognized on Stardate 70989, I remotely accessed his Klingon log file, a.k.a. Facebook, and obtained an official picture of him.

I then proceeded to combined the adventure pictures with the official picture.

Meet Kur’Den, Tuq BelmoH Yotlh!  Sorry, Captain Kur’Den.
