Oct 6, 2011 - Looking at Horse Properties

Awful. Awful, awful, awful. That's what I have to say about nearly all the houses I saw today. Bosque Farms was a town I'd read about for years. What a disappointment. I didn't see a downtown area, just a long strip of businesses that can't afford to keep their buildings in shape. You can have horses on a half-acre property. Poor horses. They weren't hurting for food, but there was nowhere for them to run, to "be a horse," as a friend put it. Don't get me wrong: Bosque Farms had some beautiful homes and streets of modest houses that owners...

Oct 5, 2011 - A Little Fried

I hate to say it, but I think I'm fried. Instead of looking at horse properties I went to Old Town Albuquerque. It's Balloon Fiesta, and every square inch of real estate was decorated with balloon banners, flags, mobiles, signs, and even a real balloon (I think). The balloon-themed clothing, toys, and tchotchkes were never ending. I went to Old Town so jeweler Christin Wolf would polish a pendant I bought from him in 2000.

I was supposed to be checked out by 11:00, wasn't I? Yes, I was. Mortified, I told her I'd be out in an hour. I hope I didn't wreck her whole day's schedule. To prove I was sincerely apologetic I tipped $10 on top of the $50 cleaning fee. Starbucks, then rain. I didn't bring an umbrella and forgot to borrow one from my friend Gloria, in Prescott. An overload of...

Apr 21, 2008 - Another Day of Driving

Monday morning we had breakfast at the hotel and we were on the road before 8:30 A.M. Joyce took the driving chores and I played with a navigation program on the laptop. After another short stretch on I-70 we again hit the 2 lanes highways and angled down to hit I-25 at Trinidad, CO. It did not take long after getting on I-25 until we were in New Mexico. We crossed the line just before 1250 local. We stopped at the first rest stop in NM, got to the building that housed the restrooms and there was a sign, “Temporarily Closed.” There was...
