Birds of a Feather and Voter Registration in Mescalero, New Mexico

October 3, 2014

I just happened to glance out my patio glass door where I saw these delightful little birds frolicking in the bird bath and it was too cute to pass up photographing.

Not sure of the proper name for these little birds, but they seem to be having a grand time
Isn't nature wonderful!
This bathing went on for quite some time
We must have the cleanest birds around the area

I drove up to the Mescalero Apache Reservation not far from Alamogordo, New Mexico to join some good folks to do voter registration. It was a windy day and we sat outside their Tribal Store in the sun. I didn't exactly go prepared to sit outside and the result was some amount of sunburn on my face and both arms. At least it isn't severe. Oddly enough, most of the people we talked to were already registered and I, out of all the registrars there, only registered one new voter. We had fun visiting anyway.

Stephanie DuBois, who is running for a seat on the Otero County Commission, kept us entertained with tales of campaigning and results of same. Seriously, she is running for the job in District 2 so if you live in that district and want great representation, vote for Stephanie DuBois on November 4, 2014.

We talked to a lot of people as there was good traffic at the Tribal Store. One lady sent her husband over to our table to inquire if we were selling turquoise. We got a kick out of that and yes, he was registered already!  An Indian man had a little dog following him that was limping along on three legs. We asked him what happened to the dog and he said someone cut off her paw. Strange!!!

This is all I have to say for now.
