We made it to El Paso in record time. Elsie did alright, but was glad to get out of the car. We found her in the hotel window...hopefully no one from the "no pets please" hotel staff saw her. We had a small birthday celebration for Gale with balloons and cupcakes. The old ladies we're showered and in their pj's by 8pm. It's a party here! Pictures to be posted sometime this weekend.
