ON TO RUIDOSO

By: joealaska, 4:43 AM GMT on February 11, 2016

Thursday morning i head out. But not very far. The destination is RUIDOSO, NEW MEXICO. It is only about two and a half hours away from here. Head north to Roswell and hang a left.

I will stay a week there, then head into Albuquerque Metro. I am trying to coordinate my schedule with CASAS. He has an actual job! And weather is always a factor.

Yesterday I played golf at Riverside here in Carlsbad. #242 total, and #27 for New Mexico. Tod...

CARLSBAD, NEW MEXICO

We drove 170 miles southwest yesterday to Carlsbad, New Mexico. I have been though here before, but never stopped to see Carlsbad Caverns. I had heard about the bats coming out in a swarm every evening. That was what I wanted to see, but I would also check out the cave since I was here.

Well, trubba. The bats migrate during the winter, and they are not here from October until May. A few blogs ago, one of you mentioned the elevators at the cave were o...

JACK STAYED BEHIND

OK, I did not sleep a lot last night. Went to bed early and woke up early. That big cat was laying there on the bed and I gave her a good belly rub. It was about 6 AM and she wanted out, so I let her go. Was not sure if I would see her again.

But I got up about 8:30 and she was sleeping on the recliner outside the door. It was cold, but she was sleeping well, When I woke her up, she stretched and did a big yawn. And she came in for a big breakfast....

Doctor Doolittle reporting from the RV section of The Park.

Regarding the emergency vehicles I saw a couple days ago… Some idiot was driving a big pick up down the narrow dirt road that leads to the RV park. It was after dark, on a road he drove regularly, and he was flying. The speed limit is 35. But it is really a 25 mph road at best, unless you are an idiot. He was approaching a bad spot with a very narrow bridge over a creek with no railings. ...

BLACKJACK

Beautiful day here today in Jacksboro. 67 degrees and sunny. It is only going to get better over the weekend.

The cat project is moving along. I have already had the pleasure of introducing new cats to each other over the years. When I brought Dutch home to meet Fluff in Alaska, Fluff did a lot of hissing and spitting. Years before that, I took FLUFF home to meet another long time cat I had, Mama Kitty. Mama Kitty was more curious than anything. Bu...
