Janet on tour

Having dilly-dallied around the West for two thirds of our road trip across the States, the time came for us to pick up the pace and put some distance behind us.  It’s all a bit of a blur but, as I recall, it went something like this…

El Guero Canelo Sonoran Sammie hot dog….5 out of 5 bacon dipped and dripping mega smootches. A Best!
