Thanks Louise!

I was depressed last night so I called Lifeline.

Got a call center in Pakistan .

I told them I was suicidal.

They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck

We have been vacuuming and dusting off and on all day. We have a small house, so you can imagine the amount of dust around here. It hasn't rained in so long, that the dirt just blew in through every tiny little crack and crevice. We had a strong wind Sunday night and it just blew all night and half of Monday so that the air was filled with dust. We haven't seen anything remotely like it in the eleven years that we have lived in Deming. Floyd says it is because it hasn't rained in such a long time. I mean we had to change all the linens on our beds, in the bathroom, curtains, etc. It was awful.

So now Floyd is cleaning the front porch which isn't any worse than inside. I have lots of laundry going, so will talk with you all later.

Good Report

Floyd saw his eye doc this morning and got a very good report. He was so happy to be able to read the eye chart so easily :).

Something in the news: Did you see that article that was in the London Times? DISNEY COMES TO IRAQ!

There is an investor in California that is building an entertainment complex like a Disney Theme Park in Iraq, just outside the Green Zone where he has leased 50 acres of land. He is building a zoo, a museum, a concert hall, an amusement park with rides and a skatepark. The entire project is costing him $500 million. The $1 million Skatepark will open this July. He says he will employ thousands of Iraqis and it will give the children a place to go. He plans to build hotels, restaurants, also. Actually, if the above link doesn't work, just google Amusement Park in Iraq, and you will find it. It's all over the web.
A "funny" thing: OJ wants to be a Trump Apprentice. hahahaha

Well, Sierra County has pass a Spaceport Tax so now the only thing left is for FAA approval.
Construction should begin soon. They contractors have been working on the Infrastructure. Let's go Spaceport America!!!!

Back from hospital

We just got back from the hospital where Floyd had cataract surgery. He is doing good and goes to see his doc at 8am in the morning. He feels good but has tons of eye drops to take.

Beautiful day here in Deming. I expect to take a nap later today since I got up at 5:30am and that is very early for me, as I am a nightowl.

Needless to day I was very pleased with Hillary's good showing in PA. She is so tough and I really admire her because for whatever reason, the media has been very hard on her and I don't think the Democratic Party has been very supportive either. I hope she wins and sticks it to 'em!

Today was like a summer day. High was 88F with lots of sunshine. We have been enjoying our warm weather. I spend a good portion of my day on my front porch swing watching the birds and reading my books. We have been seeing Hummingbirds for a couple of weeks now, they like our red honeysuckle flowers.
Pecan trees in Deming!

New Restaurant

While we are waiting for our Apaches to get Reservation status for their land, we can have some pie and coffee, lol. Actually, we could get a 16 oz. ribeye if we wanted to.

Lovely day

Such a pretty day today. We went for a drive in the country, pass our old home and in that general area. Also we went further out to see how the new crops are doing. Saw onions and alfalfa, but that was all. Things are planted, but we couldn't make out what they are. Also, saw a new Pecan field. New Mexico grows more pecans than any other state. It once was Georgia, but Atlanta has grown by leaps and bounds and that whole area was pecans. Texas is second in pecan production.

We have various errands to run tomorrow so we will be out and about. Just now I have a cake in the oven, so I had best be checking on it. It is a chocolate layer cake, and I am going to frost it with white cream cheese frosting. :-)

Have a good Monday!

keyboard messed up.

Yesterday I decided to wash my keyboard. I didn't put it in water, but I did spray it with windex. Apparently my keyboard preferred to be dirty because it would not work after cleaning, so I had to go buy another. I hope my old one works once it is completely dried out. Who knows??

That idiot Bill Richardson says that every day he talks with the Presidente of Mexico and has been promised 100 federales on the border in the town of Palomas, Mx. The Border Agents say that no troops have arrived even though Richardson insists that they had been sent. I think the Border Patrol ought to know if Mexican Troops are there!

What's for dinner?? I have some cajun Boudain Sausage, and, some stir-fry veggies. Also, I think a few french fries would go good, hmmm. Quick and easy stuff! We have ice cream for desert, that's what Floyd likes and I will have some conchas.

I'm going to finish my books by Carolyn Hart and return them to the library tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to find Stuart Wood's latest. Also, I am going to look for Diane Mott Davidson's latest culinary mystery. The books about sleuth Goldy Schultz are very entertaining and contain some really great recipes. My other favorite culinary sleuth, is Faith Fairchild, written by Katherin Hall Page.
