At the New Mexico State Fair...continued: The Cars

A few beauties from mostly early 60's. I stand corrected, some of these are from the 50's hubby says.

Equine Loveliness

Right here a few yards from our front fun! But the field that was sort of overgrown and green is already (after 2 days) showing lots of brown spots...4 hungry horses in a small field...and I am not even going into the other obvious result:)
David is treating them to my beautiful organic carrots!

On our way

Near the Plaza


Yours by Marion

I thought that this was a lovely photo of my cute petite Marion

For some of us a meal at Pasqual's induces a peaceful torpor

Beauty and the Beast

Not many roses in our garden now but of course had I fertilized them we might have more:(

THE most disgusting, monstruous, yucky hairy brown spider in the garden....almost 1 1/4 inch (not quite 3cms). Could not get myself to go behind her to photograph the front.....

Wild Flowers and Work in Progress

Flowers in our house right now

Wild flowers blooming everywhere

Picture of the cactus needles in my leg, yes, that is the price I am ready to pay to bring home some of these beauties!

These are so delicate, I just love them

A few of the designs I prepared for Mary.

She chose that one and I transferred it onto the plaque (the 2 upper corners)...tomorrow, painting! My hand as a shadow.

The Race Prize....

which I won last Sunday. It is really pretty but the bracelet is huge for my tiny wrist and will need to be adjusted. The face is pink mother of pearl. (pink is the color for the Susan G Komen race for the Cure). Awesome, no?

Susan Komen Race for the Cure

Everything is PINK for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure

My medal with some gifts 6:30am...for survivors and family, photo by Marion

During the Pink Parade (survivors)..The lady to my left is in the middle of her radiation treatment

I'm getting to the podium: left Nicole Brady from KOB TV4, then Tom Joles, the 2 main anchors. All the way to the right is our Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish.

I love to speak.....sometimes

Steve just got his medal

Marion la Jolie got hers

No, we are not proud, not at all....LOL!

Back at home

As you can see I am wearing the color of the day, a very discreet pink..
Some pictures were taken by Steve., a couple by Marion la Gazelle
We all got medals:
Steve was 1st in male 18 to 49
Marion was
2nd in female 18 to 49
I was 1st survivor and therefore 1st senior survivor.
The local TV Eyewitness news channel 4 was there with Tom Joles and Nicole Brady....I was interviewed but the segment was cut off....probably a good thing for the guy (not Tom Joles) kept asking me the same questions and I was desperately trying to find new adjectives to describe the same thing...."it's awesome....wonderful feeling...very happy....moving....terrific...." you get the point!
My knee was fine for the race but I did not push too hard, time 26'45", same as race last Sunday.
Later on I will post a picture of the beautiful watch I won along with the medal.
