Flying "J" Ranch Chuckwagon Dinner and Show

 After returning from the Trinity Site the other day, we hooked up with friends, Chuck and Sharon, for dinner. Of course this wasn't just any ordinary dinner, it was a Chuckwagon dinner and show, up in the mountain town of Ruidoso, NM.

 The dinner and show take place at the Flying "J" Ranch. They have set the place up as an old western town, with plenty to keep you entertained while waiting for dinner to be served. There are several shops with all kinds of goodies for sale.

 And this is what happens when you tell Sheryl she can't buy anything from the shops!!!

 Sheryl found this original RV, needs alittle work, but all in all not bad.

 There is also a gunfight in the street to keep you entertained. Best part is, they add alot of comedy into all their routines, which helped make for a fun evening.

 Our friends Chuck and Sharon.

 After dinner, the show began, it was interesting to see, the same folks who worked the shops and served dinner were also the entertainment. We were pleasantly surprised at how good they could all sing and perform.

Even Granny came out for a surprise performance!!!

We had a great time, of course after the fact it dawned on me, I was so hungry, I forgot to take pics of the dinner. The dinner was served Chuckwagon style on old metal plates and drinks in tin cups. The brisket was so tender you could cut it with your fork, plus beans (I got an extra helping just for Sheryl.....lol) fire baked potato, biscuits, rustic applesauce and cake........yummy!!!

We got home around 10:00 after the hour or so drive down the mountain. It sure made for a looooong day after getting up at 5:00 for the Trinity Tour, but we had a great day. Again, if you are ever over this way in southern NM, check out the dinner, it's a great time and great dinner.

So, until next time, keep Lovin Your Life as we do ours!!!

Really like that fixer-upper RV, it's right in my price range.

Sorry you had to cool your heals in that jail, you forgot to say "Yes Dear". Bet you won't make that mistake again! ;c)
