April 7————555 miles——–6:30am…..As we ease out of the parking lot and up to I10 to get on westbound, a slender, skinny woman is standing at the exit for the Eastbound exit and is the most pathetic homeless that i have seen in a long time and she has a small dog to keep her company and is feeding him a corn chip for food. Completely filthy and absoutely on her last leg, scabs all over her face and has that no hope look on her face that makes me take a second evaluation and I tell Daddy-o that I must call for some aid to this lost soul……..911 gets me to the El Paso police and they turn it over the sheriff as I explain and they have an officer on the way…….I can’t drive away sometimes, this one got the best of us.  Get this girl some aid!  hopefully she would take whatever she was offered……………..fuel………
