This and that

San Antonio de Padua, Dixon, NM.

The rear of San Antonio de Padua

A week ago today we drove back from a medical appointment in Santa Fe with a photo stop in charming Dixon, NM about 25 miles south of Taos. It was our second stop in Dixon in two weeks. First, it’s on the way and, second, it’s a dependable photography locale that Peggy and I know very well.

Embudo Presbyterian, Dixon, NM.
You’ll find this post short on text since, one, I’m taking a short break from talking (much) about my maladies and recovery from a broken hip, and, two, our son Garrett has been visiting the last week and I’ve been luxuriating in his wise, caring and funny presence. I will update you on my progress to this extent. I started using hiking poles Wednesday at PT, went for a 30 minute pole assisted walk with Peggy and Garrett that evening and later scrapped the poles and walked around the house sin bastones, with nothing but one foot in front of the other. Today Garrett and walked for an hour on the trails at the junction of the Rio Grande and Rio Pueblo. Nothing to it. I used the poles as a just in case. but my right leg was fully loaded the whole time.

That’s all folks.

Great news; great shots! Hi to Garrett

Guess there are a few benefits of doctors' appointments in Santa Fe. Your side trip to Dixon resulted in some great photographs, including the corrugated roof and eaves shot of Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion! A knockout, as is the news that you are now walking without the walker or con bastones! So glad Garret is there and you are fitting some good walks into your schedule! Kudos! We look forward to more life reports and photographs as you tour the state.

Thanks to both of you. John, I will convey your tidings to Garrett. And, yes, the eaves shots of Asunción were the pick of the litter this time. I should have led with those.

Saludos, amigos.
