    ... amp; Linda are leaving early tomorrow morning so we went out to dinner tonight. We went to a very nice Italian restaurant. When I say very nice, I mean VERY nice ($$$), The food was very good and I even found something without cheese. Bob said you can tell the difference in Italian restaurants and upscale Italian restaurants-look at the menu to see if they have Spaghetti and meatballs-this one did not! It ...

    ... most everything in the town was closed and when stores are open, there are only about four or five. The town was founded in 1899 due to people moving from the more expensive White Oaks (a ghost town, but more later). In 1909 it became the county seat of Lincoln County, soon followed by incorporation in 1916. When New Mexico became the 47th state in 1912, the first governor was from Carrizozo. It was named for a reed like grass that was plentiful at the end of the ...
