Hey, this is neat. My first day blogging. Where do I start? Well, at the beginning. I will start at the time I sold my property in California in December 2001 and moved to New Mexico, Belen, that is, in January 2002, and here is a picture of the home I purchased. It comes in 2 parts. The left side is rented to Tom and Peggy and the right side is where I stashed my stuff, but Diane lives there as chief resident ... while I travel in Brightwing. In and out. That's my AWESOME truck over there in the driveway. And that New Mexico blue sky is most days. Elevation in Belen: 4900 feet. High desert. Average rainfall: 7 inches.
