Sneaking Around Silver

Silver City is a town with a long history and you can see it everywhere you go in town.  We’re told that many of the locals just refer to it as Silver.  So, I guess it’s Silver to us now too!

Catching some sun on the deck before heading to town.

Why do carpets always try to compete with my sneakers?!  They can’t win!!

Riding into town…

Browsing for souvenirs at Wal-mart.  Who would think they’d have such a good selection.  Can’t tell you what though, it’s a secret!!

We made a stop at O’Keefe’s Book Shop on Broadway. It’s a great little shop with quite a good collection of books considering it’s size.  I picked up two books.

A birding book…Yes, Ele is finally getting me into birding…I think, and a book by a local author. 

Strolled around the Silver City Trading Company Antique Mall.

I believe that’s Billy The Kid!!

Some beautiful old buildings along Broadway.  The Palace Hotel and two others, one under renovation the other one used for shops and offices.

Stopped by the Silver Spirit Gallery for a few minutes.  We’ve met the owners and they may be interested in showing Ralph’s art work once we get out here.

Lunch from Diane’s Bakery and Deli again,

The Veggie is very tasty, this time with horseradish cheddar and dill Havarti…yummy…

Then relaxing with coffee at Java The Hut, Again!!

When we were leaving Java, a young man dropped off a copy of The Silver City Daily Press.  What was on the front page?!?

A photo that was taken Saturday at the writing workshop I attended with Mary Sojourner.  I was quite excited.  Marcia from Java The Hut gave us the copy, but of course Ralph ran right back to Wal-mart to pick up more copies.  He’s quite impressed.  I think it’s cool.  Can you see my sneakers in the photo??  Sadly, I wasn’t wearing them that day.

Later we stopped by to see our friends, whose granddaughter turned 2 on Wednesday.  We took her a baby doll which she loved.

Of course, Uncle Ralph had to decorate her birthday card…

She loved her dolly and everyone else loved the card.  It was a fun visit.

It was a long fun day.  We stopped at Taco Bell for a quick supper snack but no photos.  I’m so excited that Taco Bell is so close.  We should probably try some of the restaurants that have more authentic Mexican style food, but we haven’t gotten to them yet.  We will!

My sneakers and I were pretty tired by the end of the day…

I almost went to bed with them on!  Not really…just relaxing for a few minutes before it was pajama time.

Thursday is shaping up to be another busy day.  I don’t even want to think about how little time we have left here.  We just need to make the most of every minute.  We’ll see what the day holds.

Happy Thursday!! 🙂

  1. I say again…the best $4.00 you ever spent! Those sneakers have almost as many miles on them as the Saturn! And must you continually show me those wonderful sandwiches? Not fair! I have a salad for lunch and I’ll be eating veggies for dinner…one of us has gained 15 pounds in the last month! That would be me ;..( I was good last night when I had a veggie burger instead of the real one…but those fries just jumped from the plate into my mouth! Devils!

  2. I know that I’ve already commented once ( you don’t have a one comment rule ,do you?) But can I just say that you, on the front page of a newspaper for being a writer is loooong over due. I’ve always been proud of your writing ability and I’m thrilled that you are doing it…finally!!!

  3. Havarti really makes a sandwich SO much better. That and avocado. 🙂

    What a beautiful birthday card! And your shoes are super cute. Nothing like getting your money’s worth, right?

    • I’ve always Loved Havarti cheese, Ameena!! I stole Ralph’s avocado the other night because he doesn’t like it, lucky me!! I love the sneakers, too and thought I’d drag them out for one more adventure before the trip is over!

  4. What a lucky little girl to get such a wonderfully decorated card, so cute. I love bookstores – & libraries. We went to the library yesterday and came home with 72 books (put on 3 different cards). I just can’t help myself in there.

  5. I agree w/Ele that “…on the front page of a newspaper for being a writer is loooong over due.” It would be very cool if Ralph could show his drawings! and now you need a pair of binocs to go with that Peterson’s (which is the best guide, BTW)
