Sweet Man and I love to drive and explore. Over 30 years of this activity in the same state and you'd think we would have run out of places to go but no.....we are true backroad wanderers too. So this last "days off" for SM we went to a nearby village called Corrales. This is one of those places that has been here in NM in one incarnation or another for 400 years give or take. When the Spanish conquered the Rio Grande Valley they claimed lands up and down the valley for the King of Spain. Albuquerque where I live was so named for the Duke of Alburquerque and the horses and cattle that were needed to feed and provide transportation for the troops were for awhile housed in corals.......corrales near the village that is so named. Now I'll do my curtsy and that will do for the history portion of my presentation. Thank you so much.

I was lost for words. So then we went to lunch.
