The Original Ranch, Lakewood, NM - Road Runner Raceway

Saturday, July 21, 2012
The Original Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 71 degrees (for a short time) and mostly sunny to 98 degrees and sunny. Last night I replaced the bolt attaching the awning drum to the arm with a longer one and added a large washer to hold things together.

Sunrise today
Just Neil and I worked today on the drain of the gray water (overflow) tank back into the building and the pet bedding machine drain water pipe. Wally and I also went to Lowes in Carlsbad and returned some purchases that we do not need and purchased more of what we do need bringing home money.
The picture does not capture the toal mass of grasshoppers

At four o'clock Bonnie and I went to happy hour at the ranch house.

Tonight I went with Wally to the Carlsbad Road Runner Raceway for a night of short track (dirt) racing. In the pictures I took there are grasshoppers filling the area in front of the lights and around us, caused us to leave early. Well the long intermission helped us in making that decision also. The racing we saw was good but both of us are morning people and it was past our bedtime.
