yesterday when I wrote about Frenchy I forgot to include this Painting of him, that's in the park Museum, building his endless walls.
I went to the Walmart in Alamogordo this morning and picked up a few groceries, and while in town I went to Lowe's and bought a tool that I had been needing.
Alamogordo is an easy town to get around in because of the way the roads are laid out, and I would describe it as kind of a small town that got a little bigger. So it's small enough to find things easily, but big enough to have a Walmart supercenter, Home Depot, and a Lowe's, which covers about 90% of what I need a town for.
I passed by a Museum on the main street and I may have to go back and see that before I leave. I was too early this morning and it hadn't opened up yet, and on the way back I had frozen food in the truck so I didn't want to leave it sitting in the sun while I visited a Museum. I'll probably take a day and see the Museum and the White Sands Park since there both in the same general area.
Here at the Oliver Lee State Park its been a lot quieter than it was on the weekend. It looks like it's about half empty and that would explain some of it but I think the people that are here during the weekdays are just naturally more quiet than the weekend crowds
I guess it just makes sense that the weekend folks are here to do things and have fun whereas maybe the weekday people are like me and are retired and just living a normal life even though we're at a park. Now that doesn't mean that we don't have fun too, it's just that our fun seems to be quieter and more laid-back and might include not getting out of our easy chair.
Some parks I've been in could be described as Spring Break on the weekend and an old folks home during the week. Which I suppose is the way it should be, I wouldn't want it to be like Spring Break every day, because I enjoy peace and quiet. But then again I enjoy seeing families out doing things together, it seems to be something that kids don't get enough of nowadays.
this is a Prickly Pear Cactus that's either growing a baby prickly pear or a bunch of bananas, I'm not sure which.
if you accidentally dropped a quarter in here, you had best just let it go.
