Hubby and I were up on Aspen Skylift and this was a lookout point...See how high we were? 11600ft. Nice view. When I got through shooting photos, I looked down and saw the teddy bear that had been lodged into some rocks...I felt so Sad. Whose child did it belong to? Don't know but I said a prayer. I could almost feel it's presence...the longer you stood there, the sadder you felt. We left.
Hope you all are having a good week...Headed over to check on what You have to say!

Well, we are finally home from our eight day trip to Ruidoso, New Mexico. Beautiful country but an area that caters mainly to people who love to fly by the seat of their pants off mountains with only a pair of skis and two sticks...oh joy. There's the museums...The Space Museum which was interesting, Ft. Stanton, which was Also interesting...The Apache Indian Reservation, which REALLY upset me. With all the casinos around the area (3 or 4) I guess corruption has no nationality. Lots of poverty on the Res....
But, the main point of the trip was to check out the Condo accommodations of Hubby's Mom and Dad and to spend some time together. They have a time share and you can spend up to three weeks anywhere in the world. This is our third time to NM in less than three years so really nothing new for us to see. We ate too much, read a Lot, ran up and down roads...shopped a little. I found a T-Shirt. Oh yes, I did! How much you say? Try 27 bucks...no thanks...so we went to a casino instead where I lost 40 bucks the first day and quit...Good Girl! Hubby's Mom Won 117.00. Second day, and last, I Won 135.00 (and quit), Hubby Won 150.00 (and quit) and his Mom Lost all of hers. Hubby's Dad claims he lost One Dollar...He's a suspicious character anyway so who's counting?!
There were deer galore that would come straight up to you if you Really wanted them to. That's a bad sign. Simply means, people have been (say it WITH me) Feeding them! Morons...Good way to get killed. We ALSO had, Bears. Oh yeah...Our bedroom was on the street side...so were the trash cans...starting at about 11pm they'd come a raiding. Trash Everywhere the next morning! One night they even came up to our second story DOOR!! Geeeezzzz...Oh well, all ended well and we woke up at 3am Friday, threw our luggage into the truck, Hubby's folks climbed in the back and off we went. Nine hours later, we were Home...Nice. Excedrin...a coffee...and bed.
So, that's pretty well my story about our adventure...and yes, I'm sticking to it. Hope you all were Good boys and girls while I was gone 'cause I didn't bring you a darn thing....Hahahaa....WHAT?? You should have SEEN the prices!!! Oh, and I took more pictures but I don't want you overloading...

Just a quick check in... The weathers beautiful and I must say, we are certainly getting enough rest time. Larry's folks are 86 & 84 so we don't get around too much. Hope you all are well... Sorry that I can't check in much to see what's going on in your worlds. I'll make up for it when I get home... Have a super day!
The photo is Hubby's Dad...

Sam got her braces removed this morning but I didn't get a chance to get a photo of her new smile. I pick her up from school though at 2, so I'll get one then...She's SO pleased. Hope you all are having a good Wednesday...I smell coffee...I'm going in for a cup!

I never had to have them so I really don't know what braces "complaints" are all about but I am SO glad I didn't! She was in pain at times....but she was also determined. I'll try to get an "after shot" soon.
Hope you all are having a better day...I think I am. Night all....
