*sigh* The Close of a Wonderful Vacation

HalfBrainBoy and I have returned from New Mexico rejuvenated. Don’t we look that way?


If we were any more relaxed, we'd be dead...

Yes, life was truly sweet during our time in the Land of Enchantment. We did miles of hiking, scared up a rattlesnake, several little salamander types of things (which I love and took photo after photo of), filled up both our digital cards with photos of each other standing on very tall rocks breathing in fresh air and just being generally happy to be alive.

We did what little driving we needed to do in a rented Prius and I fell in love with that vehicle, let me tell you. If a time comes when I am able to trade in one of the monster vehicles we are currently saddled with, that will be my trade of choice. But since both our vehicles are paid off and we don’t really relish the thought of a car payment any time soon, this is a tough consideration, even with the gas savings.

If interested in seeing more of the photos which I seem to have a hard time limiting myself in putting out on flickr, though I did start out well at only about 20 per day/activity… now that I’m home, the number is steadily increasing… you can head on over to my photo gallery where I have them all put together in our New Mexico 2008 set. If you aren’t a member of flickr (and it costs nothing to join), do join up so you can leave your comments on the photos. I do love me some comments about them (be nice, please - I only love the nice ones. heh) and will leave you a comment back if you leave any for me! It becomes a regular social hour out there. All sorts of fun. I spend more time there than blogging any more. Sad to say. But I have no time for blogging.

This week’s big time crunch is the truffle business. We have our local home town days. And woohoo! If our little bizniz isn’t going to be in the parade! I’m hoping Keith will be home from work tomorrow in time to be the chief photographer of our little group handing out literature and free truffle samples! In 100 degree Fahrenheit (heat index) weather! Can you say truffle soup? ;-p I’m wishing I had some rollerblades and knew how to use ‘em! AND I wish you were all here so I could meet you on the street and say hello. Now THAT would be a fun parade.

Cross your fingers that a twister doesn't come and blow us right off the parade route because that is the kind of weather that is fixin' to pull itself together this evening...

That's the first time I ever read a New Mexico visit recap without one mention of the good Mexican food.

Thank you for your helpful comments on how to fix my template. I only need about 7,000 more hints like that and all will be well. I give you big smooches and hope you post many, many more awesome stories from vacationland.

Hiya, just a note to let you know I've dropped by, and re-entered the blogosphere. Looks like you've been having all the fun the law allows! -robert
