the radio is on, i sit quietly in tears knowing my son will be headed to Iraq i thought i was all peaceful about this war, peaceful within myself, until now apparently when it hits home, it hits i know he will be fine regardless what happens i'm very proud of him i can tell in phone conversations he's growing, maturing as he serves our country i pull out a book, Why Courage Matters, the way to a braver life-by John McCain yes the senator who may run for presidency i've read this book once, but now is the time again opening the middle of the book and where i had highlighted, i begin to become peaceful again reminded of why we have wars anyways..."His faith is his country and the justice it promises. Like Dr. King, he believes it is possible in this country to create the 'beloved community,' where all races, alll religious persuasions, all hearts, live together peacefully, respectfullly, where people can 'lay down the burden of race...just lay it down.'" there's purpose in this Iraq war and there's got to be some good in it somewhere, somehow what it is remains to be seen my me, probably others but may Spirit watch over us all in its duration GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!! God Bless the Iraqis!!!! and all those in Afghanistan.....
...came home after work, i had left the radio on American Soldier by Toby Keith and God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood played one right after the other my two favorite patriotic songs i'll play them often while he's in Iraq i'm sending him a copy too ....

this was my new road trip today! it was awesome! M told me about it great place to visit anyways, i'll write more on this trip in this entry laterz my Boo has been barking at me for an hour since being home and i must tend to her....as you've noticed there are 116 photos this time i included ALL my pics for today so you know i don't take the perfect picture all the time best of my knowledge NO ONE ever does, not even pros! that's why i enjoy everyone' else's photos too! ...so enjoy ...more soon....
ok i'm back all i needed to do was sit on the couch Boo layed at my feet, Jimmy curled up with me on the couch, and they both went right to sleep kids you gotta love 'em....so i listened to Michael Buble and Norah Jones sing while watchin' the Broncos beat the Raiders (tv muted)...
now about the trip...ok this is how i take photos i take tons! i love shooting photographs with my digital camera i can go on & on & on without interruption of changing film once completed, i select the pictures i like the best and post them these photos i'm not crazy about the lighting on some, but i can fix that later on the computer i'll do so and then re-post a few these are called Tent Rocks (note: i think some of them look like other than 'tents' more like the male genital i'd say) anyways, this was a wonderful hike as you come across some of these photos that may not make any sense, those may be the trail i was on while hiking thru them all you see is rocks surrounded by walls of rock yep that was the trail although it was only 1.3miles i think for the whole trail, it took about 2hrs up & down it once on top you'll see photos of the view and beauty of New Mexico some of these photos i really like also, there is a spider size of a tarantula, but a different kind saw him/her strolling across the path around the base of the rocks it was a beautiful day up there, but once the hike was over i saw nothin but rain clouds in the distance yep i rode my bike and i haven't yet ridden in rain fortunately is was mostly very cold wind with a few rain drops but those drops hitting my face, i didn't have a shield on the helmet, those drops felt like hail who knows maybe it was pin drop size hail that was smarts thankfully it didn't last the whole ride home i'll pack my shield the next time in case of rain must start carrying a bigger backpack too i needed an extra layer of clothing on the trip i was ok here in town, but once on that interstate, whew, a bit breezy from the crosswinds anyways, this was another great road trip have i enticed you with enough photos of New Mexico that you'll come visit?

first, most of these pics look better if you "View Larger" i heard that this campground was a great place to see the fall foliage so i hopped onto my bike and headed down hwy s 14 it's a great back road for a country ride whether in your car or on a bike it definitely (S)nakes intially constantly swerving directions along the way i mean that Literal S down the road for a few miles and some stretches were long (as i came back i noticed all the vehicles crossing the line often) anyways, the ride there was such a joy it was a tidbit cool on that mountain road, but bearable once out in the sun and behind the trees, it was comfortably warm anyways, little did i know that i'd be taking some dirt road to this campground the last 7miles was 4wheelin' on my bike to the campground as i rode up there i noticed the foliage was about gone i was at least 2weeks too late for the true beauty of the fall foliage, but i did get a few shots as noted above i took more than the 39 posted, but i don't always include "all" pics i take and i didn't get tooo picky about which pics to post i'm so damn critical of my photos and have learned others like photos i take that i don't think are that good well some of these are decent, others ok (i'm always ready to take a better photo) but one of these pics i've fallen in love with going to print it (two simple leaves on a rock) but you choose what you like and enjoy the adventure out today was just what i needed after yesterday which was trying i have another road trip coming up,but decided to wait til the middle of next week or two (think i have a doctor apptmnt next week) don't want to travel the interstate on the weekend while everyone's off work and buzzing everywhere plus the weather forecast is predicting rain for the next 4days or so aint gonna be goin nowhere....have a good one my friends!
