Yesterday I walked into the kitchen. I walked right by a box on the table. I guess my subconscious thought it was for packing. I was fixing my coffee, etc., and walked by the table again. The box had a pocket knife stuck in it like a flag. "Look at me!" it said. Then I saw it was to me from Gene. I opened it to find a much larger animal gift than usual. A doggie and is soooo soft that you have to move it around to see which is the front. Sort of like our grand-dog, Chewie, when he was a tiny puppy. You can't see the eyes unless you move the fur around.
I put him on a chair pillow for sketching and showed the small eyes even though you can't see them when he, Angelito, is still. He is sketched on my iPad with the iPencil and the app, Brushes.
I had another surprise for my birthday, too. Gene won the quilt at the Old Timers in Magdalena so we also picked that up and he gave it to me for my birthday.
Now we are in Arizona at Roger's. We had some adventures as usual, but we finally made it here. We stopped in Grants to visit my sister and daughter, in Magdalena to visit Gene's sister, in Socorro to visit 2 more of his sisters, and in Truth or Consequences to visit his cousin.
Next stop was in Las Palomas to have our teeth cleaned. We stay in Columbus, New Mexico, drive to the port and walk into Mexico. Gene needed a crown, so they made the impressions, etc. We will stop there on Wednesday on our way home to have it installed. We should be home by the 29th at the latest. We shall see. We hadn't planned on the crown.
I sketched a bit here and there.

I'm posting from Gene's MacBook Air. Could not get the photos up from the iPad. I really to not like change and Blogger has changed again. Pbfttttt.....
I will try to sketch here, too.
I may have shared this song before, but it describes me over this move.....

Photos along the way will follow when I can use Gene's computer or whenever......
