Sunday was our fourth wedding anniversary. We stopped to enjoy poppy fields in a couple of places on the way down to Bisbee on Saturday, then spent the night in the historic Copper Queen Hotel. Didn't hear any of the three ghosts alleged to inhabit the hotel, but slept well!
It was nice to get away and enjoy poking around Bisbee, enjoying each other's company and the fact that we got through the cancer year and came out the other side with flying colors, we're enjoying where we live and what we're involved with ... and we get to share daily laughs and joys.
Spring is with us ... again. The beautiful blossoms covering the tree in front of the house perished in a late burst of snow and frost. Everything's back on track now, but a lot of fruit probably got nipped in the bud, literally.
The Grant County Art Guild is starting to get active again for the 2012 season and we've got pictures in a show at the library and in a new, ongoing venue at a local hardware store. We helped put on a reception the day before St. Patrick's day and it went quite well.
The Guild was also involved when a camera crew from KOAT-7 in Albuquerque came to the Hearst Church Gallery in Pinos Altos in the process of doing a special on the Hearst family history. That got us all atwitter!
A trip to Las Cruces to pick up a new lens for my glasses gave an opportunity to visit with an old NPS friend and tour the plaza area of Mesilla ... a very pleasant set of shops. We'll probably be going back there for Christmas shopping.
So, we're getting through the month pretty well, staying busy. I'm going with another Friend to Paloma, Mexico, on Wednesday and then, on Thursday, we drive to Phoenix, fly to Seattle and visit Drayton in time for this birthday on the 3rd. While there, we also plan to see grandson Seth in Bellingham, tour Seattle and take a two-day jaunt around the Olympic Peninsula, just Sandy and me. It's been about 45 years since I've been in the Puget Sound area, Sandy's never been there and neither of us has ever been on the coastal side of the Olympics. Plus, we get to have supper with a couple of old NPS friends while we're in Port Angeles. Back home on the 4th. More then. TV
