Today I moved to Rockhound State Park southeast of Deming, New Mexico

I probably would have stayed at Pancho Villa State Park for the long President's Day weekend and then moved to Rockhound next Tuesday but I ran out of food and, Rockhound being closer to food than Pancho Villa, after restocking I headed over this way.

A couple of hours after I got set up here folks with a fairly new blue Lazy Daze 26-1/2 Mid Bath pulled in next door. They left early the next morning and, silly me for not introducing myself this afternoon, I didn't get to meet them.

Monopoly Money

During the 1990s I knew all the dot-coms would go to hell, because when I thought about them the only images I saw were rented office space and computers that would be obsolete in two years. There wasn't anything real I could picture; the companies had no hard assets. My stockbroker asked me how I knew the two stock market crashes would happen, and I told him, "When the Monopoly play money starts jerking around the real money you're in trouble."
