Tuesday already. I left for New Mexico last Tuesday. It was a short week and not at all long enough to be away from the Northland Winter. But it was a break and I liked walking around in a sweatshirt instead of a parka, not to mention eating some good green chile.
But this is a post for Ruby Tuesday. I shouldn't be talking about "green" anything. Seems I have a transportation theme going here this week. My Granddaughter driving her ruby red fire engine in the back yard last Summer along with a picture of a beautiful red doorway in the small hamlet of La Mesilla, just South of Las Cruces, NM.

These next four photos are from a previous trip to New Mexico. It was April of 2007, and we escaped an early Spring snowstorm. Our little red Focus is no longer amongst the living. Blew the engine last June. But I liked the way I preserved its image. The pictures of the grill were taken at gas stops as we traveled South and away from the snow. You can see from the photos of the ice on the front end of Red Ranger, (Our pet name for our car), it took some miles to get out of the Winter in 2007.

And another type of automobile. The Bumper Car!

This last one is yours truly when finally getting to a warmer climate, and I am wearing a red, of course, sweatshirt.
Relief from the Northland Winter at last!
