Thursday, July 5, 2012 The Original Ranch, Lakewood, New Mexico 68 degrees and mostly sunny to 93 degrees. It is feeling cooler after the rain yesterday. the rain passed around The Ranch on the east and west sides.

Last night there was a group of us down at the end of our street to watch the fireworks in artesia. We started gathering about eight for a nine fifteen or show. It never went on as the evening went on we were seeing a nature lightening show instead with cloud to cloud and cloud to ground lightening the whole time.

 We are attended a special MEWS - (Men Eating Without Supervision) today in memorial for Ron who passed away on June 29. Ron always made sure MEWS was announced every Wednesday at happy hour and explaining the MEWS to everyone. From our limited attendance here at The Ranch eight member gentleman car pooled to the Paddock restaurant in Riverside, NM (Pecos River) for the breakfast.

Wally even had Ron’s favorite breakfast "blueberries and oatmeal" , and many memories of Ron were shared by the members present.

Bonnie went to Roswell to get Merry’s cat food and some New Mexico state tourisum handouts The Ranch needs for visitors.

No real work was accomplished today as the temperature and sun in the work area is too high after breakfast. The shade was gone in the outside work area. Before going to breakfast I got an eight foot ladder and lifted the awning drum onto the forward arm and rolled the awning in to the closed position. The attachment bolt hole is torn and the arm needs replacement.

Awning rolled in

At four o’clock I went to happy hour
