Today I arrived back at Rockhound State Park southeast of Deming NM to meet new Lazy Daze friends and visit for a few days before starting my long journey back east for the summer.

Rockhound as Lazy Daze central

It seems I'm back at an ongoing gathering of the faithful. Kate had mentioned Debbie and her new rear bath were here but I had no idea Chris and Frank The Rainbow Chasers would be here, and John too with Gypsy Rose. That makes 5 Lazy Daze clustered at the top of the park.

Fellow Lazy Dazers have been coming and going at Rockhound since the middle of February when Kate and Terry arrived. There seems to be a magnetic field around Cholula Red - Kate and Terry stay put while others come and go ( maybe it's Kate's bread). Kate's tally is up to eleven Lazy Daze now and I'm sorry I missed meeting so many of them while I was away on my expedition to Las Vegas visiting friends and relatives.

The Adobe Deli

Darn, these people are having way too much fun - I missed the repeat gathering of the faithful yesterday for the Sunday buffet at the Adobe Deli. But all was not lost. The gang decided to go off to get a burger for lunch today and I got to go too! Twice, in fact - it turns out burgers are not served at lunch and with all mouths focussed on Adobe Deli burgers there was no question but that a return at dinner hour was in order. A big cup of the Adobe Deli Onion Soup Kate raves about sure went down well too.

When you get out this way, keep the Adobe Deli in mind.

Now, Dazzled

I've gone through life believing in the strength and competence of others; never in my own. Now, dazzled, I discover that my capacities are real. It's like finding a fortune in the lining of an old coat.
