Here I am in rainy Albuquerque. Flight was completely uneventful; very standard stuff. Didn't even take too long to get through security, although I'd deliberately worn flip-flops to assure the shoe problem would not bother me. Everything stuffed in tote bag, and I was good to go. I hope x-raying my camera didn't hurt the film.

I saw another raven this morning, he let loose a "rawk!" as I was mowing the back yard and I looked up as he jumped off the roof of the office building down the block and gracefully spread his wings and soared away. This time, since it was 9:30 in the morning, I was not at all uncertain of what it was--definitely, positively a raven. They seem to like the top of that building, and I wonder if they have a little rookery there, since they seem to appear in the early mornings. I ought to sit out in the evenings and see if I can see them coming "home." I am going to take these ravens as good signs of wonderful portent, because good things seem to have been happening since I first saw the original grouping (parliament?) waybackwhen (July 15, when I saw seven ravens--seven days later, I got the word I was a finalist in this contest. Weird, eh?).

rahirah is sleeping and I have commandeered the laptop. It's a cool thing, but the inset keyboard is kinda weird to get used to. Especially the space bar.

We had a late dinner in a little diner-looking New Mexican Mexican place (New Mexican Mexican is a distinct food experience very much all its own, and extremely yummy), so sillymagpie, we've had sopapillas. I had a stuffed one with shredded chicken and green chilies for dinner, and a basket of them with honey of course came with the meal, although rahirah said that Sonoran style carnitas are better than the New Mexican style ones she had tonight.

Anyway, as I was saying, the flight was uneventful, and in fact much shorter than I even expected it to be. We barely got in the air before we were landing, it seemed like.

Oh, sillymagpie? When you stop by the house tomorrow, could you reach in the freezer and take out the by-now-frozen-solid bottle of water I'd stuck up there to get cold for the trip? I forgot it. Since it's just water, I don't expect it's burst or anything, and if it's not cracked or anything, just stick it in the fridge. T'anks. :)

Now I think I'll sleep, too. Tomorrow!

Best of luck to you! I'd love to see NM one of these days...

It's really very nice here. Like a smaller version of Phoenix (or the way Tucson used to be, kinda), only much cooler. And Mountains. Lots of Mountains (the real kind). :)

I'm reading this after having been to your house to feed and water the critters, so unfortunately I didn't know to take out the water. I'll try to do that tomorrow when I stop by to pick up Barb's keys and car to get you at the airport.

I envy you the good sopaipillas. Sigh. I could live in New Mexico, if I could find a job there.

The Mom is watching reruns of the Laurence Welk Show. If it weren't so comfortable to use the laptop in here, I'd pack up and leave. Gah. I can't understand the popularity of that show.

We'll probably see you before you read this. :)

I could live in Albuquerque just for the radio stations. Mainstream country stations that actually play real country, too. It's just like they used to be!
