Rosabelle

Thursday, April 13

Today we visited Rosabelle. She is Mary's former mother-in-law. She is in a long-term care facility here in Albuquerque. We had a very pleasant visit with her. We're still not sure whether she recognized us, but she seemed very happy to see us. We called
Pahrump at Petroglyph Nat. Mon.
Aaron and let him talk to her on the cell phone, and her eyes lit up with recognition. We left her a photo of Aaron and Sherrellee from their wedding, and an Easter card to open later.

I will let Mary report more on the visit with Rosabelle later.

We found a UPS store where I could finish my paperwork and have it notarized. Then we went up to Sandia Peak but the tram was closed today. Across town, we visited Petroglyph National Monument. It was warm and while partly cloudy, we still got tired quickly and sunburned (which we didn't notice until later).

We left Albuquerque around 4:30 and arrived in Santa Fe around 5:30 pm. We found a motel with internet access so I could post all these blog entries! Then we headed to a local hangout that has become well known across the country ... The Bobcat Bite. They serve a 10-ounce hamburger with your choice of swiss cheese, bacon (Mary's choice), or green chilies (Mark's choice). I also tried the grilled jalapeno and turned bright red after just one small bite. As I told Mary, for just one buck I had to try it. We talked to several other customers who are regulars and they gave us some advice about what to see in and around town.

We found a Cold Stone Creamery near our hotel where I could wash away the effects of the jalapeno.

Tomorrow we hope to find a Calvary Chapel where we can attend a Good Friday service.
