Farmington, New Mexico

We actually took a day off today!  We only do that two or three times a season.  But I finally found the red, square, foldable charcoal grill I’ve been looking for for about a year. We had one for about 5 years and it was perfect for fulltiming because the legs fold down and it sat compactly in the truck bed next to the tool box.


I went on the internet and the only place I found it was at Big Lots.  And, as luck would have it, it was on sale for Father’s Day.  BUT, the closest Big Lots was in Farmington, New Mexico, a 135 mile trip one way!  Oh, what the heck….let’s go….so off we went at 8 a.m.

I had called ahead and Abbey was nice enough to save one for me.  It was a fast pick up.  Then lunch at Golden Corral…love their crab meat salad.  I was lucky as they served beef liver today….yummy!  Next we stopped at Petco and got the pups’ nails trimmed; yes, they had to muzzle Chorizo as he got nasty mean.  Poncho, MY dog, was a perfect gentleman!

Then we drove back home seeing the Ride the Rockies bikers driving into Pagosa Springs.  We wanted to get back to the campground around 4 p.m. to greet our overnight campers, and we made it.  We have 8 sites full tonight and that’s pretty good out of 12.

Father’s Day weekend has always been good for us at Big Meadows Campground with lots of fathers and sons spending the weekend together.  This has been a tradition with many families, some coming every year for 20-30 years.  We would get 3 and 4 generations coming together every year.  We’ll see if any come on over to Park Creek this year.

So it’s been a nice day.  Remember, you are loved.
