While you're celebrating at the beach with your family or in the backyard with the neighbors, take the time to thank a Veteran for their service. We wouldn't have the life we do if it wasn't for them!! Donate your time or a few bucks to one of the organizations that help out our Vets. It's such a small thing to do for someone who risked their life for us!! And while you're at it, say a little prayer for those overseas, that they come home to their families safe and sound!!
Even little Tucumcari was celebrating yesterday, with the First Annual Anything That Floats contest at Conchas Lake, a few miles north. I don't know all the rules ... I'm sure there were rules, don't you think?? ... but you could bring anything (homemade of course) that floated except a boat or canoe, and race to the finish line, for what I don't know. Bragging rights I guess!! But who cares if there was a prize ... these people were just having FUN!!
All lined up and ready to go, there was everything from 55 gallon drums to a bathtub!! See those boats in the distance?? THAT'S how far they had to go and RETURN to win!!
