The Ranch - West of the Pecos

Saturday, October 23, 2010

The Ranch Lakewood New Mexico West of the Pacos River 46 degrees to 77 degrees mostly sunny all day.

Well I finished cleaning out my expandable file folder and got all that remained into my file draw. I donated the expandable folder to the swop table, money collected there goes to the Escapees CARE, Continuing Assistance for Retired Escapees, located in Livingston, Texas. From the picture we keep food for Merry there and she has been in there inspecting before filling that up. There is still room as things are somewhat spread out.

We went again out northeast and east of the Pecos River and got some fine rocks to decorate our lot here at The Ranch. This area is about four miles east of Artesia and then south about three miles. The picture above is looking south. The sky in these pictures are mostly sunny.

We each selected some rocks although Bonnie has the eye selection.

Silver Sally hauling a load of rocks.

By the way there is a train track that runs a third of a mile from here is still active. I do not know any schedule for the trains. Bulk cars and tank cars that is all I have seen but there are probably some freight trains they are morning or night. With only one crossing near here the whistle only blows for that crossing, we use that crossing accessing the Lakewood post office. So we hear this rumbling off in the distance wondering what is happening, is there a "Rig" coming into the park, then the whistle and it is the train moving down the track. We do not here every train but some are louder than others.
Well there were all players in attendance tonigt and the boys lost at dominos.
