Days 8 and 9 Visiting Friends in Albuquerque

Saturday we rented a car in Taos for the ride down to Albuquerque to visit my former brother-in-law and his family, Dennis, Rhonda, Brian and Daveena, and their children and grandchildren. I haven’t seen them in eight years. The last time was in Idaho Falls for Auntie Cheryl’s (as Stephanie and the kids called her) funeral. It just didn’t seem right without her. We caught up and all went to Sadie’s, an Albuquerque landmark restaurant for dinner. Had some great New Mexico food. Came home and played 31. We Michiganders love our cards, don’t cha know? Sure hope its not another eight years before we see each other again. The Johnson clan was my family for over 20 years and I’m so grateful that they are still in my life. What a great family. Love you all.

Dennis has had several RVs with the last one being a 42 foot diesel pusher. Now that’s a rig. He did some work camping for three years. Work camping means you get a spot to park for about 15 to 20 hours of work at the campground. We talked a lot about his adventures on the road.

Sunday headed back “home” to the Taos area. Stopped in Santa Fe for breakfast. Blue corn flower pancakes with pinon (pine) nuts and orange butter and cinnamon syrup… Yummmmm. Then back in the car and another 60 miles back home.

We’ll just relax the rest of the day…we need it!

Thanks Dennis for having us and thanks Rhonda for giving up your bedroom.

Laters…
