Here Cat and I continue to move into our new home here in Alamogordo. We continue to find every encounter we have with people here to be simply remarkable! Every person is so kind and considerate. The USPS is the most efficient and pleasant in our history! Such happy helpful people. We’re blessed to live here in such a mecca of good people. We have discovered so many marvelous restaurants and shops everywhere.
Well, except for our only and last ever visit to an Applebee’s restaurant…. Never in our past has a visit to one of them been even marginally acceptable…. Ever! We decided to give them another chance and regret doing so. Everything associated with the visit was unpleasant. No circumstance will make us return………
Our home is really coming together. The living room is about 95%, our bedroom super, and ‘office’ also near complete. The walk-in shower in our master bath is to come as is security/storm doors front and rear, window treatments, and back yard landscaping with rock and the workshop there. We’re patient as we can be…. The garden shed we ordered from Lowe’s will be assembled Wednesday/Thursday. Yea! The garage is workable, though not for vehicles yet. I’ve worked on a workbench and shelving. We’ll likely have a water softener installed soon. The kitchen cabinets are to be installed next month! We’ll have them do the cabinets in the master bath too.
Our ’41 Ford pickup is in progress to resolve the catastrophic engine failure and a few other things. I really considered the Chevrolet LT-1, but am going with a different crate engine. It will have fuel injection mostly for the efficiency and reliability it provides.
Cat and I love living here – the Sacramento Mountains are so majestic and CLOSE! Our view to the West of the Tularosa Basin, White Sands, and then the Organ Mountains by Las Cruces are so nice. Frequent colorful sunsets and sunrises bring joy to us both. Our neighbors are marvelous as well. It’s a very quiet neighborhood with very little traffic.
Wednesday is our 25th Wedding anniversary. Doesn’t seem a day more than a week. We’re profoundly happy together! Not certain yet what we’ll do to celebrate, but it’ll be appropriate.
Wishing everyone a magical and loving Christmas!
