My two recent encounters with Space aliens



Of all the salt and pepper shakers I have owned in my life these are the best. I bought them a few weeks ago at a roadside trading post. The clerk put them in a box. 

But I felt that it was not right to keep such a magnificent treasure hidden away. I am sure that you will agree that this piece of Americana is too incredible to not share with my fellow Earthlings.

Oddly enough, I was passing by a store the other day in Cottonwood, Arizona, when I spotted yet another alien. It bares a striking resemblance to my salt shaker creature. However, judging by the shape of its head, I think it’s probably from different planet.

This alien is much larger than the first — far too big to conveniently hold salt and pepper shakers. To be perfectly honest, I do not know why it is even there. Of course, there is a possibility, albeit slight, it is an actual Space alien. Those big eyes could very well contain spy cameras.

I am beginning to feel that it is no coincidence that I am having repeated alien encounters. If I should disappear from the face of the Earth, you will know that I finally got my wish to explore outer Space!

And while I am on the subject of Space aliens, why do they always have such big eyes? I believe it’s because they live far from their sun, so they are dealing with a pretty serious lack of light.

Ok, where is that roadside trading post with the salt and pepper shakers? Gotta get some next year when I take off (not in my spaceship, but RV).

It is at Pichacho Peak, about 20 miles north of Tucson on I-10. They cost about $11. What a bargain!

Here is a little video I did for fun on the place:

You want our money but you sure don’t make it easy to contact you! Shouldn’t it be on the home page? I don’t see it.
I want to buy a Tpms system but I could not find it on your pages.
So I went to rvtiresafety, Marbles web page and I found an article “Best Tpms” did it say anything about the best system, no just what to look for
Do I have to buy one of each brand and test myself? I thought that is what you do? Unbiased reporting.

So where do I go to contact you?

Hi, Harry,
It sounds like you’re looking for a recommendation for a TPMS. Here is a link to one of our advertisers, TireTraker. We don’t advertise for anyone or anything we don’t believe in, so we can recommend this brand of Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Thanks for asking. Have a great day. 😀 —Diane at

Harry. I try to make my blog “company neutral” as some believe that if you mention products you are beholding to the retailer. In my case I am not involved in the decision of who advertises on the blog.
My email is at the bottom right of each blog page and I am willing to offer my opinion on some products when I have data and/or personal knowledge of the products.
Now in the case of TPMS I bought my TPMS from Tire Traker years ago. I have tested a few but not all different systems. I have found the Traker TPMS with their Lifetime warranty to be reliable, easy to set up and it provides reasonably accurate data.

Hope this info helps clear up any confusion.

Please note the recent change of the URL of my blog from a .Com suffix to a .Net suffix
