So Cool, No School!

We only got about a half inch of ice, then an inch or two of sleet and snow but the kids got a three day holiday. Back to school tomorrow.

Colorado Check-Up

While spending the work-week in Bloomfield working at the Milagro plant and staying in Farmington, New Mexico, I managed to sneak off to Colorado and snag a quick visit with Joe and Becca. We had a lovely, if way to short, visit - delicious dinner at Tequila's family Mexican restaurant and wandered along Main Ave, Durango looking in shop windows and checking out the great bookstore. While browsing in the bookstore, Joe found a cute puppet and checked him out while Becca was attacked by a stuffed dog. It was wonderful to see B and J and I can hardly wait to hear the news about the next baby in the family. Boy or Girl? Either way, I am sure he/she will be adorable.

Weather in NM was nice while I was there, sunny and 50's during the day. Several of our group managed to sneak out of the plant an hour early to visit the ruins in Aztec Wed. afternoon. The ruins are preserved as a National Monument and were a wonderful treat. On our way home Friday afternoon, we spent an hour at the Petroglyph National Monument just outside of Albuquerque. The petroglyphs are cool but you just can't see all 2000 of them in an hour visit.

Next trip out, I will have to stay an extra day or so and get a real visit. Thanks for meeting me in Durango guys.

Turn the World

Dream a dream; make it happen. I raise a toast of great appreciation to those with the strength of their conviction to stare down the barrel of overwhelming odds to do what's right.

PreSpring Cleaning

Getting disgusted with the look of the WOR back yard, I took advantage of the nice weather Saturday to get started on a big clean up.
It took about 30 minutes to get a truck load of brush and then a couple more loads before giving it up for the day. Before you know it I'll have enough for a nice bonfire!

Wane's World

While viewing the waning moon tonight I figured it was worth a photo. This was shot with an old 1.6 megapixel Sony Mavica and processed with an ancient Adobe photo editing program.

Big Moon

Howdy Folks. Heard on the news today that today's full moon would be the biggest of the year. Last month's was the biggest in 15 years. Hope everyone's 2009 is off to a great start.I've been up to my neck in computer malfunctions but beginning to get a grip on it. Sure appreciate all the folks who made it out to the 'abbreviated' tree burn last week.
We've now got several unopened jars of salsa of varying degrees of heat waiting to be tasted. You bring the chips, we'll open the jars! I hope to be more diligent in posting on a regular basis. I hope that if you've got something to add you will not hesitate. 51 more weeks.

The wind was blowing, the Fire Department paid a visit and it was getting cold. Time to throw on the first tree. That honor went to the BA Orbans. Happy New Year to all!
