Social life, New Mexico

City people can’t even begin to think how active a social life you can have even 100 miles from a city or in a dirt- road downtown town. Only drawback may be that it is harder to resist; a sort of Carpe diem reigns. Or maybe that is just me. So: two photo blog posts.

 First : a party arranged by Bodie and Lindsay in Corrales and centered around his two new monster deerhound pups (the 6 month old male is already bigger than any dog I ever had but half- deerhound Riley). In attendance: two Bodios, California deerhound breeder/ potential New Mexican/ radiation oncologist, and medblogger Miranda (I will keep her anonymity a bit longer); and her friends Helen and Kent, recent immigrants. The entree was elk with green pepper sauce, and the conversation spirited. We need to take Miranda out with hound and hawk– she already has the hounds. Silly pics follow; my only vain reaction is that I need a treadmill and a severe fast. Damn how slow you get with this condition, but we had fun.

From top: Bodie, Miranda,; her friend Helen’s first encounter with a hawk ; me with our host; Lib and Lindsay. To be continued in the field….
