Turtleback Mountain, Truth or Consequences

I've been having excessive amounts of fun in T or C, as always, but I evened that out by sprinkling in vast stretches of time doing nothing, or whatever I felt like. I like to stay balanced.

A friend took me hiking toward (not on) Turtleback. He called it an "easy" hike, so it's now pretty clear he can't be trusted. However, to start and to finish, we had to ford the Rio Grande, so it was worth it just to say "ford the Rio Grande."











  
You're looking down on T or C. Shame on you.














I've been house- and cat-sitting for about three weeks, living the life of Roxi. While enjoying the luxuries of house-dwelling, I've also been able to spend time with friends (especially my good friend, Sue). Truth or Consequences is always a good-time town.

My crush will be returning to the States in four weeks! I don't like to fling exclamation points onto a page irresponsibly, so you know this is big.

I think you and your camera might be able to make any place look cool. Not sure what to think about flung exclamation points.

Thanks, Sherry! I promise to clean up after myself if I fling too many down.

What kind of rally, Jo?

Thanks, you two cuties (and your mom)! I'll take those good vibes.

Did you eat at the Happy Belly Deli? How could one resist a name like that?

Cute name, isn't it? The restaurant may need a management shake-up to survive, and then Bellies will be Happy again.

Geri, I know! You were thinking of grandchildren. I grew up in Florida, but I don't feel its heart anymore when I go back
