Sunday, as soon as Beverly and I can slip away from church (which means, for her, when the last person has left the building), we will be heading to Ruidoso, New Mexico. We have rented a house in the mountains for a week. The kids (all of them!) will be coming up Monday.
Beverly and I have never skied, and we were so excited about the possibility of giving it a try. But they have had only 12 inches of snow this whole season. They say that some of the slopes are open, so we may still give it a try. If that doesn't work out, then we'll play some golf and do some hiking and shopping. No matter what, it's going to be a great time with the family.
I don't know if I will be able to blog while I am away or not. I am so appreciative of those of you who visit my blog site. I invite your comments. And please check in next week, but I will for sure be back the following Monday.
On a political note: I love George Bush, and have supported him even though his ratings are down right now. I appreciate his conviction to do what he believes is right even when it is not politically expedient. But I have to wonder: WHAT IS HE THINKING WITH THIS DUBAI PORT SITUATION!!!!! We have hundreds of millions of Moslems wanting to cut our heads off, and we are going to allow a UAR company to come in and have that kind of authority over what comes in and out of our ports? Doesn't that kind of define the old adage of "letting the fox in the chicken coop"?
Sorry, President Bush. But on this one, I am adamantly opposed. I love ya, man! But this is a no-brainer.
