Once Upon a Time I Visited Kathi and Stephen

A Visit to my Grandson and Stepdaughter

In early November, 2006, I was on a multi stop business trip that put me in Chicago with the weekend off. So I used it to visit my step daughter Kathi and grandson Stephen in New Mexico.

On Sunday, Stephen, who was a sophomore at New Mexico Tech in Socorro at the time, took us on the grand Albuquerque to Santa Fe to Jemez Springs to Albuquerque loop tour. 

Stephen was a really fine driver. I felt more comfortable with him than almost anyone else I can remember.

I had made this trip when I was here a few years earlier. The plan was to hike up to the springs and then stop for green chili stew at the Los Ojos restaurant where I'd eaten last time. 

Our plan didn't work out. Kathi slipped on the trail to the Springs and broke her leg.
