Below are pictures of Di and Charlie. Charlie is a loving pet. Of course Di is too!!!! And I did find out. Buddy stole her from England, they still cry wanting her back. I see it in the news all the time about Princess Di.
We visited the Petroglyph National Monument. This is a beautiful desert flower, the Astor. (maybe)
Petroglyphs are symbols pecked into the surface of these lava rocks.
Di and I flound some more. They were put here between 200-300 years ago.
Sherry found some, among some more lava rocks.
More as we walked around. Very few are pointed out by the park service you search for them yourself.
More of them, no one knows exactly what they mean except me, and I am sworn to secrecy by the ancestrael ghosts of the Pueblo, Apache and Navajo who created them.
We found Buddy back at the office and we are discussing the sorry state of todays Politics.
As usual I got lost, but with Di's help we found Old Town Albuquerque. A very interesting area with a lot of history. Some smart aleck parked an antique Mercedes convertable down town. Looks to be about a 1950.
Many of the buildings are original with some being restored.
We sat and listened to this band on flutes(?) I even enjoyed it. My Sherry bought me a cone of BUTTER PECAN ICE CREAM, know what Buddy's favorite is? BUTTER PECAN! We both agree it beats Chocolate hands down. (and we are experts).
Below is San Felipe De Neri is the oldest church in Albuquerque and has served the area continously since 1706. hard to beat that record in the USA.
Restaurant "La Hacienda" on the corner of the square.
I finally got Sherry to buy a couple pieces of Turquoise. This is one of the vendors. A beautiful lady, but she sat on her legs constantly. It hurt mine to see it.
Well here we are at home, and Buddy is telling jokes. He spent four years in the Bayou country of Lousiana and can entertain using Cajun phraseology (which I dearly love) and stories he heard while living there. Besides PI work, Undercover work, and teaching law enforcement, he also played guitar in a band.
He ain't bad with a steak either. He and Di fixed supper for us and I had a delicious steak. We ate our Idaho potatoes also.
As I said, Di & Charlie took Buddy this morning and left. It was one great visit. We are already trying to arrange a get together with all three of us old guys.
Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.
