Hi, Mom!

Your fave is in Moriarty, New Mexico and has just returned from Founders' Ranch over in Edgewood. I think the GPS took me on every unpaved -- and I mean DIRT! -- road in this part of the State to get there. I mean, Mom, West Vidalia Road is a track over rocks, and I drew the line when The Machine told me to "Turn left on Firebreak Road" because that was, well, a firebreak and "paved" with boulders as large as the wheels of the car.

So I drove around some and finally, by going West, hit upon the North-South road Founders' Ranch is located off of. (Hot damn! I think I just ended a sentence with a double preposition!)

Anyway, I met some nice folks -- including Captain Baylor (see his website) -- and a couple from Oz, and she was named Dorothy, really, and no, I didn't make any jokes about it.

See, Mom, my wife told me to go to EoT while she was in France and so I obeyed, just like I always do.

Anyway, the vendors were just starting to set up and nothing much was going on today except for the socializing, which was pretty nice. Tomorrow is when the shootin' starts -- literally. Anyway, Mom, that's where I am and why I'm here in the New Mexico desert wilderness.
