This will be a short post because when I finally got over to Verizon today, they were closed until 2:45 for lunch. I had not been terribly impressed with the service there on my first visit, so I decided to go to Santa Fe to make the switch from AT&T. Three hours of drive time, two and a half hours with Verizon, a few minutes in Best Buy, dinner and some grocery shopping has left me with a shortened evening. The good news is that the switch seems to have gone without a hitch. I traded in our old phones for two new phones and a new 860L mifi device. Got out, after a mail in rebate, forty bucks ahead. I was very satisfied with AT&T. No complaints. Good coverage, no problems with their tech support. But there is no AT&T coverage in Taos, so they decided since I’m a fairly heavy user, they would just as soon drop me as a customer. This has been a major inconvenience, but I have hopes that I will be even more pleased with Verizon. We’ll soon find out.

RANCHOS MOON Daily Photograph #1627

Just a snapshot, but this was the view from our kitchen door a few nights ago, and I felt like sharing it with you. Enjoy.

Ranchos Moon


Oh, by the way, we ran through a beautiful cloudburst around Tesuque on our way to Santa Fe, and just miss another on our way home. Love the rain. We need it.

  1. John, you, once again, outdid yourself with today’s painting. It is magnificent and entails everything I love about New Mexico and the rest of the Southwest! And guess what came to mind when I looked at your photo? Moon over Hernandez by Ansel Adams! Now there is your version called Ranchos Moon:-)!

  2. I really like “Sand Hills” for its simplicity and angles. Rancho Moon makes us want to come up to the fresh
    evenings of Taos.
