Santa Fe, NM – big fan!
Sheri and I just got back from spending a few days in Santa Fe, NM. It’s a great, quirky place to visit, and absolutely lovely in the early fall.

Sure, I grouse about our awful politicians, but I suspect that’s been happening since July 5, 1776. The men and women who have volunteered (and in unfortunate times…Read the Full Post
