Sand at the Ranch

Friday was a much better day. About a dozen hours of driving from Santa Fe, NM to Oklahoma City, OK. The Indian casinos have slowly dwindled down. And the sage brush has turned to flat green lots with the round hay bushels. Haven’t really seen any of those old red […]


Sand in the Southwest—PART II

Yesterday was a bad day. The first of all misadventures that didn't end up with any decent stories. I missed my event with the Travel Bug in Santa Fe, NM. Bad calculations, forgot about the time difference, stopped four times to attend to the signs, and didn’t have the right […]
