Hick sent me a couple pictures from his trip out west to see his brother. None from Area 51. Can you believe it? But they DID go there. And also here:
What do you mean, you can't read it? You know how Hick takes pictures! Tiny subject in center, surrounded by surroundings. It's the Little A'Le'Inn. Hick said it's about 40 miles from the closest town. I wouldn't be surprised if you could see that town in the vast space surrounding that sign. They went inside, too.
Not sure why I find Hick's photos to be so... how you say... BORING, and devoid of human interest. I guess he's a just-the-facts kind of guy. Anyhoo... of course Hick had a story about their visit here.
"We was sitting inside, and saw two ladies drive up in a fancy Mercedes. They came in and Bro said, 'Hey, I'll trade you my scooter [he rides one for medical reasons] for that Mercedes.' The lady said, 'I'm not sure you really want to make that trade.' Turns out the tire on the other side of the car was flat! It was one of those run-flat tires. It has hard rubber in it, so you can drive on it until you can stop for a new tire. There's no spare. She had beat the sidewall off that tire, driving on it. She said she called Triple A, and they were sending a tow truck. But they might have to tow her all the way back to Vegas. That's about 150 miles. We said there was a town 40 minutes away, and she said she'd tried that, but they didn't have the kind of tire she needed."
Leave it to Hick. Go all the way to Vegas, and have a story about a flat tire.
