Commercial Break

Melted Pyramid
Melted Pyramid, originally uploaded by Miloflamingo.
Having spent the morning cleaning up the grass at the paddocks, I decided that it was entirely too hot for any serious activity so my daughter and I took her friend into the desert to examine pyramids. 3 pm on an August afternoon may not seem like a great time for desert driving, but it was gorgeous. A strong breeze cooled us just enough, no sound at all on the air. We ambled around looking at nice rocks. One of the pyramids that I wanted the girls to see was this one that was constructed of millions of mud bricks. Gradually, it is collapsing, but right now it is just amazing.

Badonkablogger would LOVE to visit the Egyptian pyramids. Somehow I feel I would get killed if I ever went there?
