Brave New World

I'm sitting here watching Mr. & Mrs. Obama walk up the Avenue in Washington. Now the fun starts; he's got a hell of a job in front of him. Here's hoping he can do miracles. That miniature tank they are riding in is pretty funny! The tv folks are saying it has 5 inches of armor (12 or 14 cm to the rest of the world).

It's a nice day in Pahrump. Took a walk around the block after breakfast; it's a mile around. Met one of the neighbors; he seems like a nice guy. Out of work though; he may have to move out of state - I can't think that's a good idea in this economic climate. When we got home, we sat outside for a while and talked about turning the yard into something. It was warm so we came inside and opened the windows for the first time; don't know why it's taken so long. During the day it's certainly been warm enough. Now my wife is calling all her relatives telling them how comfortable it is.

One of the things I don't talk much about is the Pahrump Valley. We have mountains on both sides of us. The land in the valley here speaks volumes about the river that ran through this valley thousands or millions of years ago. The way the dirt is washed up against the rock mountain shouts out 'sediment'. That river must have been amazing! It's pretty interesting; I'm liking it a lot.

Gotta go. Have a good one.
