Severe Winds – Day 2

Boy, did we get the big winds the second day of this wind front!  Sandia Peak in Albuquerque had winds of 99 MPH – Yikes!!! Large trees were uprooted, hitting houses and crushing cars.  The news last night was full of the winds destruction. This morning they showed blowing snow up there too.  Poor folks.

Jim Mossman fixed a tasty pork roast with yellow rice and instant sweet potatoes.  First time for instant sweet potatoes and they were really rather good.  Watched a little TV with them and then called it a night.

Today we awoke to cold temps of 30 degrees and now it just went down to 28 degrees.  And, get this – there is a possibility of snow here today!  So what are we doing?  We’re moving 15 miles further south to stay at the San Felipe Hollywood Casino, as the Mossman’s have been here 14 days and they must leave….so we’ll go with them for two more nights and squeeze out every last bit of our “togetherness” with them that we can.

But there is some good news concerning the Mossman’s – they are going to join us in working at in Campbellsville.  I’ve been “working” on them for the last two months and I finally wore them down till they said yes :)  They will work part-time 11 am to 3 pm Monday through Friday, in Receiving Department. We’ll get to see them only a little during the week, between when they get off work and we go in.  But we can share more time on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, on our days/nights off.  So we’ll only be away from each other during the summer and then get back together come October and travel together for next winter…..we’re happy!


Remember I wrote that the place we use for our mail forwarding in Alamosa was experiencing some hard times and I thought we needed to make other arrangements?  Well, we are now getting our mail through Americas Mailbox in Rapid City, South Dakota.  We haven’t decided about changing our domicile yet, so we are still Colorado residents.  But we needed to know our mail would get to us.  So I have spent the last two days online changing as many addresses as possible.  I have a list of 34 companies I have to notify of our address change…UGH!  And then the internet connection here at Cochiti Lake has been throwing us off a lot, so it has been pretty frustrating pushing to get all the mail changes made.  Took me 37 minutes to change Verizon Wireless last night….and that’s only #10 on the list!!!!!

So if any of you want to have our new snail mail address just email me and I’ll send it to you; but most of us phone or correspond via email or Skype.  Oh, that reminds me ---- how many of you are using Skype?  I installed it and really LOVE using it.  It sure makes a big difference seeing as well as talking to someone….you feel so much closer to them.  If any of you do have Skype installed please let me know so I can add you to my contact list.  For those of you who don’t ---- WHY DON’T YOU???  It’s a free download online and very, very simple to do….check it out.  So nice to SEE your friends, family members and grands.  Lecture over!

Oops, Jim is telling me to button up the rig to go, so I’ll close for now.  Last thought – what do you think of the Mediterranean diet?  I’m seriously thinking of going that way as a lifestyle change.  Seems to be pretty healthy and a way to lose weight.  Let me know what you think about it.

Remember, you are loved!
