Santa Fe shenanigans

Ethel, Ethelette, and I went to Santa Fe yesterday.
We felt right at home.

This was the first time I'd run into this particular sculpture,

but it won't be the last. It's at the southeast corner of Old Santa Fe Trail and East Water Street, 
if you happen to be in Santa Fe and need a donkey hug. 
After a day of shopping, I highly recommend it.

We toured a few galleries on Canyon Road, and Ethelette attempted to teach Ethel
how to play rock, paper, scissors. Ethel failed at the scissors part...

...which seemed hilarious at the time. Perhaps you had to be there.

This sculpture did not appreciate Ethel's impersonation of him.

Then Ethel helped Ethelette climb this tree.

Believe it or not, all of the above occurred prior to a round of margaritas at Henry's Road House.


  1. i am trying to figure out how hard it would be to move that donkey sculpture to your ranch. I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT and everyone looks so happy. what a wonderful place to visit with all that art.

  2. I wonder if your donks would be jealous?

  3. I love that donkey sculpture. You guys are/were having too much fun.

  4. What a wonderful day! What a beautiful sculpture! What delightful women!

  5. I'm confused. I thought you were headed to Florida to see your momma?

    1. Ah! Makes sense now. How great that you get to spend time with Ethel and Ethelette! LOVE the donkey statue! Wonder if they'd notice if it mysteriously went missing?

  6. I love roadtrips!

  7. And smiles were on everyone's face (even the onlookers:-) )

    I love when the "Ethels" come to visit and we get to hear about your escapades. Such fun!

  9. Such a wonderful picture...the one with the 3 of you by the burro statue. And that last photo? Gorgeous and so sweet. Please tell Denise I love all her turquoise!

  10. That burro mom's face actually looks like she is enjoying your scritching her buttocal area.
    What a wonderfully fun and happy post, with all the contagious laughter and smiles!

  11. What a great day! Love the sculpture. Love the hijinks. Love the laughs. Burp. Aunt Jean

  14. It is so much fun to see you and the "Ethels" have so much fun. The Cuckoos have a photo with that sculpture. I wish they made miniatures of it. I'd have one on my coffee table. Rock, paper, scissors has taken on a new importance to us now that we watch Big Bank Theory.....Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock. If ya know what I'm blathering about. tee hee

  15. The sculptures are incredible! I think everyone needs to have friends like the Ethels. They crack me up and I don't even know them!
    Have fun on your trip to Florida!
