I drove 10 hours from Oklahoma to Gallup, New Mexico via Interstate 40. Some of us pettes may remember that parts of Interstate 40 contain the historic Route 66, the "Mother Road" that connected Midwest Culveria to the West Coast.

Alas, the Route 66 we knew, with its quaint up-to-date shops and bistros, is being handed over to commercial tackiness and shabbiness. However, New Mexico is less affected by that, and Gallup has nifty places that are wonderful for ladies to enjoy the flavor of Southwest Culveria.

I spent the night at the Hotel El Rancho, and it's wonderful. Rooms are named after pre-Eclipse kinema stars. I got the Irene Manning room, which has a large patio. Perfect for hosting a cocktail gathering.

In a few minutes, I will pack up and head towards my destination. I will not be able to attend this week's class at Virchers as I will be driving. Please send everyone my regards.

Rayati,
Miss Spyker

Rayati, all!

I've arrived on Saturday and rested for days. Thank you for the well-wishes and prayers for a safe journey.
