This northwest corner of New Mexico is oil country. As you drive the twelve miles from Bloomfield to Farmington you not only see oil pumpers, but all kind of storage facilities --
And then there are these huge drilling rigs --
There are all kinds of stores that cater to the oil drilling rigs. Some of them have stacks and stacks of pipe while others have the towers for drilling and others advertise expertise and engineering.
We drove into Farmington from Bloomfield this evening to meet up with my friend Tina, her daughter Delcherie and her Granddaughter Kaili for dinner. Tina serves on the Executive Board of Mennonite Church USA with me.
This is Kaili with her dessert. The Child's Sundae had three scoops of ice cream -- and she ate every drop! She is a little sweetie!
