As planned, we left El Paso at 9:15, and were out of the city by 10:00, lots of traffic but very manageable, and David didn't swear once! We cruised down the road, and before we knew it, we were in Deming! Of course we stayed at the Escapee park - $12.50 per night, plus electric - what a deal :)
As we were getting set up, our friends Fran & Rich came over to welcome us - we chatted a few minutes then agreed to meet later...we finished setting up and then made a Wally world run - where would we be without them??? I got some much needed provisions and we came back home and had lunch - we went over to the neighbors and we chatted from 2:30 - 4:00 when we went to social hour - there were about 9 people there, they have social hour EVERY DAY!!!! We met the guy who is cooking breakfast for us tomorrow morning - eggs to order, sausage, hash browns, toast, juice, coffee for the princely sum of $3.50 per person - what a deal!
After social hour we found the Moose club here in Deming, they were very nice and invited us to imbibe in their happy hour, they had sandwiches, chips, veggies & dip and birthday cake! We came on home and had ramen noodles for supper along with some cheese and crackers. It really hit the spot, being light but filling.
I took Cinder for a walk up to the dog run - it was so windy here that I threw the ball up in the air and it flew over the fence and down the street!!!
We finished the day once again at Fran & Rich's - solving the problems of the world :)
