Greetings from a rustic gas station in a tiny town south of Weed, California! I was perusing the wood bundles, when I noticed this spooky little guardian angel, cuddled up in a fleece blanket pile on a Chevron hat, meowing his face off.


When I tried to strike up a conversation about the feline friend with the attendant inside, she just sighed, like a disappointed mother, and said, "Well, he sleeps a lot."

Emily Nokes is our tour with her band Tacocat. But she's still Slogging, because she loves you. Expect more random tour posts like this in the near future.
