I am going to begin here by asking My Buddy ‘Zilla a quick question. I must tell you, and ‘Zilla understands full-well that ..
I DO NOT ASK TRICK QUESTIONS.
Here we go.
” ‘Zilla? What do you see below my friend?”
“Cap I see a telephone.”
” ‘Zilla, you just earned, a hard-to-earn, ‘ATTA-BOY’ ! ”
I will NOT ask ‘Zilla the following question.
“Why is having a telephone ..”
“Here in my room at the Santa Fe Inn in Pueblo, Colorado, a big deal?”
It is a big-deal to have a telephone in my room here ..
BECAUSE !! At Ye Ol’ Downtown Motel in Trinidad, Colorado ..
I DID NOT have a telephone in my room at the above motel in Trinidad, CO.
Happiness sure can be different things at different times can’t it?
Where was I ? .. Where was I going here ? .. Got It.

Yesterday, Saturday the 20th of May, I had a very, easy-duty, 85-mile drive up here to Pueblo from Trinidad. It took me just under 2-hours.
A few photos I snapped ‘along-the-way’ to show you what Southeast Colorado looks like along the Interstate 25 corridor.
I must have snapped 10 photos to get the one below.
Into Pueblo I arrived and went straight to my motel.
The Santa Fe Inn & Suites, Pueblo, Colorado.
Knowing-The-Ropes, I got here at 3pm, so I was very early for my check-in.
“Yes Sir! We have your reservation! Smoking room! Upstairs on the 2nd floor.”
Knowing-The-Ropes, I got here very early for a check-in, because, if you show-up late-in-the-day or worse in-the-evening you have either little, or absolutely NO CHOICE of which room you will get.
“Your name please?” .. “Melissa Sir.” .. “Melissa I am not able to climb stairs. I do NOT smoke, never-have-never-will. What can we do here?”
“No problem Sir. I will do some ‘juggling-for-you’. Juggle Juggle Juggle. Got it Sir. Downstairs. Right next to the office here. Handicapped Parking Space. Newly and completely renovated room.”
“Lord God in Heaven Above, why exactly do all of these good things keep happening to me in my life?”
“Melissa. You are wonderful.”
“Thank You So Very Much Melissa.”
“Sir you are most welcome. Anything I can do to assist you please dial ‘0’ on your room phone.”
I did not say the words out-loud but I thought to myself,
“My God! I get a phone in my room?”
Into my room in Pueblo, Colorado we walk.
Are you all sitting-down so you don’t fall over and hurt yourselves? The above room here in Pueblo cost me twenty-nine cents ($0.29) a day more that the below room in Trinidad that was tiny and had no telephone.
“Oh My God! I have died-and-gone-to-Heaven.”
“Careful My Little Captain about what you are saying.” /God here Captain /
Notice below, if you will, the stuffed, easy-chair, in the right corner of the room.
“Hello Dad. Come on over and sit down with me for a minute-or-two.”
Notice my feet in the below photo! As I sit in Mister Easy Chair above!
“Dad. I will be your ‘table’ for you to sit at and for you to enjoy your breakfast of Raisin Bran Cereal, Ensure Chocolate Drink / Water, Kashi Food Bar, Unsalted Mixed Nuts and your vitamins.”
“Very nice Mister Easy Chair!”
A closer look at some of my amenities. Nice table for my laptop. Large, flat-screen T.V. Microwave. Refrigerator. Ironing Board with an iron.
Love .. Love .. LOVE the counter space.
Another question for ‘Zilla.
” ‘Zilla. What do you see in the below photos?”
“I see a ‘nifty’ laundry room Cap.”
” FREE, NO CHARGE, ‘Zilla!”
“Died and .. ” .. “Watch it My Little Captain!” / God here /

Oh My! I am so hungry I could eat a horse!
You all will never guess what is right-next-door to my motel.
MoMo Japanese Restaurant.
Looking at MoMo’s (on the center and / or the right) in relation to the Santa Fe Inn (on the left).
MoMo Japanese Restaurant.
Inside we go to experience the very nice ambiance at MoMo’s Japanese Restaurant.
The below photo shows my table and the stripped-lighting as the sun shone through the venetian blinds.
Now you understand the stripped-lighting-patterns on my delicious meal as you look at the photos below.
And now, the piece de resistance (the main course of a meal), Beef Teriyaki with Vegetables and Rice.
It equaled any of the best meals I have enjoyed in some time. I was ‘starving’ and the preparation of the entree was outstanding.
And now? Over-And-Out for now.
I hope you enjoyed this mini-odyssey! This mini-tome.
With Joy and Gratitude For My Many Blessings!
