ENVY! Sounds like you are going to be living in a fantasyland. They don't call Mew Mexico "the land of enchantment" for nothing.

Looks like another three years in the Big City for us.

The man who previously lived in the house, left some hummingbird feeders. We didn't know anything about feeding hummingbirds and didn't have internet so we could search how to but we went down to Josies market, (only grocer in Timberon) to pick up something we forgot and happened to say something to her about the hummingbirds. She told us a recipe and we went back and fed hummingbirds the whole week.

HI, glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip to New Mexico. Was wondering if you would share the recipe for hummingbird feeders. We have a couple of feeders at our house.
Thanks,
Viv

I use to work with the Native Americans in Albq. quite a bit-(Intel)—they had a funny saying!

Ouch on the tires....it was a good idea to go ahead and get all new tires, and not have the worry, though it was expensive.

These small towns in TX (including where I grew up, which is also along I-10 on your route) really don't have a lot of services on WEEKDAYS, let alone weekends...I'm glad all worked out. Blowouts are really scary. I had one not too far outside of Sonora, and replaced mine at that time, too.

Hi Harry,
I'm still laughing about the heater incident. I told my mom (whom lives in San Antonio, Tx) and she thought I was coming down with something or losing my mind. LOL

Can't wait till we are both up there together. Kent has discovered new places I havn't been yet.. Lots to see.
Just keep us posted on your move..
Hi Jane,
Snow in July, wow.
I grew up in Colorado and it did the same thing in the summer and a couple of times, it stuck to the ground. Didn't last long though.
Sounds like Kent is having fun discovering new places. So much to explore.
We are very thankful we were not hurt either. There was a big rig next to us when it happened. Scary, but thankful we are safe.
Cheryl

Hi Greg,
Now I can see why NM is called the land of enchantment. I didn't really realize it until this past week. I have not felt so relaxed in my life.
Hopefully, you can visit in the next 3 years.
Cheryl

Hi Viv,
The recipe Josie gave us was to use one cup of sugar to 4 cups of water. Bring the pot to a boil and let cool. Fill up the feeders and you're in business. We had 6 feeders up and about 12-15 birds swarming around. Amazing!
Cheryl

Hi Cathy,
I hope it doesn't take long either. I will miss living here in the hill country but I will not miss the humidity. There are some folks that question why we want to leave the hill country and the only thing I can come up with is the heat and I feel the need to be around mountains, trees, etc. now. Time for a change.
The weird thing about the tires is it happened twice in one day.
The same thing in Fredericksburg as far as businesses opening and closing or not having what you need when you need it. A couple of months ago when we had flooding, and we had garbage in the streets, I ran over something in my car and my back tire was ruined. I had to order the tire online because I could not replace it here.
