A day trip to Deming

I took a ride into Deming this morning knowing full well I'd never secure a site with hook-ups when I got back, but that's ok. I needed to find a mechanic to replace a vibrating driveshaft universal joint (done) and make an appointment for a long overdue eye exam (done).

The mechanic I found this morning, JT's Auto on Country Club Road, had an opening this afternoon to replace the u-joint so I filled out the morning wandering about the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum for a couple of hours - not nearly enough time to do this wonderful museum justice.

Passing Time in Byzantium

..Byzantium has begun to look suspiciously like my hometown. It has the same people, the same houses, the same goings and comings. But I am a very wise child seeing things very differently. The activities and interests of adults mystify me. They appear senseless. It is like watching the TV with the sound off--and suddenly realizing how ridiculous people actually are.

I expect adults will in turn regard me as ridiculous. Actions people might accept in a child may not seem appropriate in a grandfather. I won't be distressed. I am looking forward to new heroes and new adventures. And if you ask me where I've been I'll say "out"; and if you ask me what I've been doing I'll say "nothing."
