The Excitement of Santa Fe.

When I travel I am at the mercy of the speed of the Internet on offer as to the effectiveness of the blog. I was doing two things at once on Wednesday and lost the contents of a couple of my blog preparations.XXXXXX Oh well, its just one of those things. Lisa and I spent…

A gem of a day.

The vista from our hotel is  magnificent. I see  a vast blue sky, and the mountains surrounding the city of Albuquerque. Bright colored balloons are dotting the horizon as they float quietly through the invisible air. Its going to be a pearl of day again today. Its a contrast to the dark wet days of…
