The hospital Sheryl works at had there Christmas party the other night, free dinner, a gift raffle and entertainment, Hey, you can't pass that up!!! Besides it gave Sheryl a chance to smooze with the bosses Dinner turned out to be very good, we didn't win any prizes but it was a good time never the less.
Socializing before dinner.

The venue was the Civic Center in town, much nicer than we expected for small town NM.

Sheryl's favorite doctor and friend. We had a good time as it seemed everyone else did. Thats it for now and until next time......................

Westside Rd, LNF, 19 Dec 09

Saturday, Sheryl and I, along with some folks from El Paso and here in town took a little trip up into the Sacramento Mountains. We all met here in Alamogordo, after refueling, we headed toward the town of La Luz and the La Luz Canyon Rd. After a short drive on La Luz Canyon we headed east on Calico Peak rd.
We made a side trip up to Calico Peak, there was just enough room for our party to fit there rigs in the turn around area and the view from the overlook were great. Then it was on to Westside Rd. toward the southern Sacramentos

We had a diverse variety of vehicles, from Land Cruisers, FJ Cruisers, Jeeps and a Pick-up. All toll we had 7 rigs in the group.

We went in search of snow and managed to find some, but mostly what we found was mud and lots of it!!! Due to the snow melt the road was pretty bad in spots, but nothing the group couldn't over come.

After about 3/4 of the way, we stopped at an old corral for lunch, the corral was pretty damaged by the high winds we had eariler that week.

After Westside Rd. we headed over to Bluff Springs and the waterfall (one of the few in the area) still quite a bit of snow at the falls and the ice on the falls was still plentiful. Made for some good pictures and the kids had a ball playing in all the snow.

Once again a good time with great folks, what more could you ask for!!! No wonder we love our life so much!!!

Last Weekend, one of the new doctors intown and friend of Sheryl's invited us to a holiday party at their practice. It just so happened the party coincided with the cities holiday parade and their office just happened to be on the parade route.
We were surprised at the number of people that showed up for the party, and the Doctors sure put out a spread of food and drinks. Turned out to be a good time.

The other surprise was the number of people that turned out to watch the holiday parade. The parade lasted for 1 1/2 hours, seemed like if you lived in town you were either at the parade or in it!!!

Just a quick update, we have another holiday party this weekend put on by the hospital. So we'll let you know how that one goes, everyone says it a great time also. See ya next week.

Thanksgiving 2009

Thanksgiving 2009, my daughter and her husband invited us out to do Thanksgiving with them in Dallas, ( cooking, cleaning, , stress or houseful in our house) of course we had to say yes!!! They had just moved into their new home and wanted to begin their family traditions and memories with a houseful. The dinner and days were great and the kids have a beautiful home. We didn't take a whole lot of pictures, were just enjoying the days.
Here the girls are getting the feast started (Sheryl, Kayla and Tiffiny)

After a couple of days in Dallas with beautiful weather, we returned home to a bit of snow. This is up in the mountains just east of home. What a perfect way to end a perfect holiday with friends and familiy.
