Hi, I live in Alamogordo, NM. My husband is Military retired and we live about 5 miles out of town in the desert! We LOVE it here. We feed all kinds of wild birds including Roadrunners who come very boldly for hamburger meat!! We also have Cottontail rabbits and squirells who come for corn and bird seed! We have 3 little Doxies, one who has Addison's disease. I love to cook!! I make quilts, crochet, embroidery and sew. All 4 kids have been gone from home for years so we now enjoy 8 grandkids and 2 great grands with another on the way. My husband plays guitar and I acompany him on either the slide guitar or my Autoharp. We like the OLD songs, not the new country western stuff. If I have a pet peeve I guess it would be people who put kidney beans and tomatoes in Chili!!
