Where The Socks Match The Rocks
Triple B at Bozinski Point
(actually Zabriskie Point, Death Valley)

My daughteer Deena came up with that line: "Where the socks match the rocks." When I was growing up only old men wore black socks (with sandals!) and I can't make the transition, because in my ancient mind—it's dorky! But my kids assure me I'm the one who looks dorky now!
And, so it goes.
I look at this spot every morning when I wake up. Well, actually, I open my eyes to a poster of Zabriskie Point on the far wall.
The hat on the left dates from the mid-eighties and the one on the right, from the 1880s, and yes, it is an original Boss of The Plains.
