Random Thoughts from my Drugged Brain… or “What I Did on My Summer Vacation”


I Broke My Wrist

My arm-new splint ©2012My best friend treated me to a weekend trip to New Mexico to cross some things off my bucket list as an early birthday gift and I brought home a lovely souvenir from Ruidoso New Mexico.

There’s no story to tell.  I slipped and fell.  It had been raining and the pavement was wet, and there was some funky stairs that should have had better markings to sow the edges of the steps.  When I got to the ER, the doc knew exactly where I’d taken the fall because he had fallen at the same place.

Other than that it was a great trip.   Which I can’t tell you about because I’m typing with one finger/handf..  Getting better at it.  I’m learning to love left handed words.  Those words that only use letters feom the left side of the keyboard.

ASlas there ARE not enough of thm.

I’m not going to correct the typing for the lazst bit so you dear readers can get a taste of how FUN my typing ids right now!  *SIGH*

New Mexico

Me in my temporary splint the day after the accidentI saw

  • Carlsbad Caverns
  • Guadalupe Mounyains National Prk
  • Lots of desert
  • Ate at some very good restraunts
  • met some cool people
  • met some hunky park rangers  oh my!
  • Roswell –geeked out  serious schlock fest @ the UFO stuff
  • Roswell — saw a Rembrandt and a O’Keefe that I’d never seen before
  • White Sands — geeked out on nature and sweet talked a ranger into giving me a Junior Park ranger patch!
  • generally had a blast
  • Ate more good food
  • Went to two bars in El Paso, used my brand new conversation starter to make new friends

Whew!
