New Mexico


We have two frisky Road Runners (state bird) who live on our block. We also have a skunk that I have never seen but I KNOW it is around.

NM is a bird watchers paradise. We have a nature reserve near and we see birds galore. I got a nice pair of binoculars and go out to our back porch and watch. 

  I have mobility problems due to illness and I pretty much stay home but my older son goes mountain biking and has seen a lot. One time a buck deer was on the bike path and challenged his right to be there by lowering his head and thrusting his horns at him.   A black bear sat in the middle in the middle of the road and ignored them as they CARFULLY tipped toed around him with their bikes. 

  I skin and make hat bans, billfolds and knife sheaths out of rattle snakes that they kill and bring to me. This is a nice place to die.

I live in the concrete jungle...our animals run around on two legs and they are truly the most dangerous of all...

I hope it is also a great place to live as well as die!
