See them tumblin' down, Pledgin' their love to the ground . . . Lonely but free I'll be found . . .

Driftin' along with the tumblin' tumbleweeds . . .

Guess where this tumbleweed is driftin'?!

I'm going out to New Mexico to be with my pals for a week:

Well actually, to hang out with my sister and my parents (but I will definitely stop to see Ed Larson, who painted that last one.)

To eat:

at The Rancho de Chimayo (among other spots)

Where I will order:

the Tortilla Compuesta w/the tinga beef (not an actual picture, but who takes pictures of the stuff they order in restaurants? That would be creepy and weird.)

To see:

the Albuquerque balloon fiesta

and the high desert fall foliage.

To drool over stuff like this: (Matt Mitchell)

and this

and this

and this

and to generally have an amazing week in New Mexico doing the things I love to do most.

Latest Albuquerque weather says:

high 81/low 55/sunny
(you can knock about 7 degrees off that for Santa Fe)
In other words, PERFECT.

If you kids are good while I'm gone, I'll bring you a treat from Jackalope.

So I guess this is adios, amigos . . .

Happy Trails to You,
'Til We Meet Again!

(about October 9)

I took at least two pictures of food I ordered in Mexico...Clearly I'm weird.

I write on a blog about food I'm going to order at restaurants. I don't think I get to point the weird finger. . .

at least i can rest easy in knowing that high desert fall foliage is not as good as my fall foliage.

but you get to be in the high desert...

you win.
