    I once looked into buying one of the dilapidated houses in Madrid…but decided not to! Lol

      it has made some progress since those days but it is still rough and tumble. the only gold and silver is what’s in the wallets of tourists.

    I remember hiking up that canyon with dad and brothers years ago!

    2019/06/25 at 4:04 pm
    • From scott on Morning Walk

      it is still a great hike. the old concrete stone dam is at the end of the arroyo and then you climb some rocks to go deeper into the canyon. alex and i hike this area at least twice a week. haven’t seen deer for a while but know they are watching us…..

    That statue is an affront to feminists everywhere and must be destroyed immediately. 🙂

    • From scott on Kid Sculpture

      It is a great sculpture. I guess it will eventually be torn down and replaced by a vending machine or a bike rack. Till then, it is a good piece of art and the themes are pretty much on target.

    You really meet the people and see what the countries you visit are about…not just the tourist traps! Sounds like your dollars go pretty far down there.

      seems your comments are getting to us fine…. I’ll talk to the tech guy about it.

    Looks like the Fuentes have a really nice club there…..too bad you couldn’t tour the growing fields and see the dozens of rollers they must have working there! Nice post!

    • From scott on Arturo Fuente Cigar Club

      Next time down I will stay in A different part of the country, maybe Santiago. It is a nice club but I don’t understand why they don’t have one in the Zona Colonia.

      will explore Santo Domingo a few days – the Zona Colonial. It will remind me of Old Town in Albuquerque or the square in Santa Fe. shorts weather here. we don’t like snow at Scotttreks.

  • From Scott Lafon on I Was Here

    at first i thought it was written with a finger too but the letters seemed too straight and sharp. im still not certain they didn’t use something more pointed than a finger. in going back i see the idea is a distraction so it has been eliminated. It was a great little side trip sold by that guy on the street when we were walking to get something to eat.

  • From Charlie on King for the Day

    If I were King for a Day, I would fill the prisons with social justice warriors and foul-mouthed Hollywood celebrity malcontents who threaten the President of the U.S. on a daily basis. I once went to the old Albuquerque Airport, at the height of the Vietnam War, to protest Richard Nixon’s arrival. Once the doors of Air Force One opened, all I could see was the President. I realized that it didn’t matter who was the President at the time; I had respect and awe for the office of the President. There was no protest from me, only a great appreciation that I could see my President “in-person” and in”living color”. What happened to supporting our elected leaders, whether we voted for them or not?

  • From Charlie on Mickey's New Employee

    I hate the kiosks. Sharon and I encountered one in Maui, when we were looking for a dinner that wouldn’t cost us $50 (or more) at the tourist traps. I fiddled with the damnable machine for a few minutes, without results. Sharon, being more patient and more technologically advanced than her Luddite husband, solved the mysteries of the machine and we got our dinners. However, there were no views of the ocean, no girls in bikinis, no waiters asking if our dinners were delicious. The customers seemed satisfied though. One couple played a card game at their table and at another, small, quiet children were enjoying their night out with mom and dad. Instead of candles at our tables, our food was illuminated by harsh fluorescent lights, exposing all of our physical flaws. Still, the fact that the food was a lot cheaper than at the hotel we stayed at made the evening a success. Thank God our dinner wasn’t dependent on my skills navigating the kiosk. May it rot in Hell.

        Those were crazy times, the 1960’s, and it’s crazy now too. Thanks for the memory of a special moment and what it triggered in you. That is what Scotttreks loves.

    Lol, didn’t know you’d be writing a spot on our outing! It’s a tough little course but I always enjoy getting out on it!

    • From Scott Lafon on Golf in a Cow Pasture

      thanks for dropping by…… I add posts whenever they come to mind. it is a tough course because of the obstacles built in to its location and design.

    These clouds look a little like what Berta called buttermilk clouds, but not quite! Lol. Maybe they are a cloud seeding experiment?

      Always good to revisit the ranch. Your Grandfather and our Aunt made it a great place to be in the summer. They were very kind. Lots of memories on the creek. We didn’t catch much but it is still peaceful around the water. Thanks for stopping by Scotttreks.

  • From on Snail and Tortoise

    Major Tom (the turtle) is a star! Tom does take some chances when he shares the same yard with the mule deer. He pretends he’s a rock when the deer arrive on the scene and their curiosity, many times, leads to the deer tapping at his shell or poking their noses at him, trying to coax Tom out for a visit.

    • From Scott Lafon on Snail and Tortoise

      There is much to be said for staying in your living room when Rome burns…..Having a mule deer step on your roof would not give you much sense of security.

      It should work okay but try again, and, if no success, we’ll work it out on the technical end.

        I think it just takes time to work! In this modern instant result mentality maybe I am just not patient enough? Just sayin!

          Technology can be worse than no technology. It is good to hear from visitors to Scotttreks. Everything is working great so comments are getting through. The waterfall was particularly energizing.
