We have bunnies at our site. I saw five of the cute little buggers grazing on the green grass of spring, right next to Shorty. It's interesting to watch how they "freeze" and possibly think that you can't see them. I've felt the same way, although it was in my younger years.
Today on the way to a laundromat in El Paso, Lynn spotted one and saved us about five miles each way. It's virtually new and is an excellent place. A buck a load to wash in a standard washer and reasonable prices for the larger ones
The wind had picked up while were in the wash/dry mode. No surprise there. It's blowing from the California Coast into the Mid-West and bringing unseasonal weather to much of the nation. Is the climate really changing? Looks like it to me, and I spend a lot of time watching the changes. I'm glad I'm not a Polar Bear, especially since I can't swim. Things look bleak for them and others who live on the lower shores of the world.
We stopped at another Dubya Store and got a few supplies and headed home. We read the afternoon away and just finished dinner. Enchilada Casserole made with Black Bean whole-grain chips instead of tortillas...a tasty treat! Yea, salad too...
I dug the ol' guitar out yesterday and exercised my fingers a bit. The tips remembered it this morning as I played a bit more. I'm really not getting anywhere, but do love playing what I can. I've been threatening to take a few lessons in the summer break, but don't know if I'll follow through. It's a great hobby, howsomever...
We're hoping to get a permit to visit the open, unguided area tomorrow. It seems to be more difficult than I'd ever imagined. There are about only 6-7 rigs here and they allow 70 folks per day. I believe it is so restricted due to the fact that it is a Sacred Site to the Native Americans. I can appreciate that, but surely would like to see some stone paintings and petroglyphs. We shall see.. More on that tomorrow.
