Towing Paradox to meet Tom Nims in Corrales NM

It was a beautiful bright sunny day in mid October – but in New Mexico more summer than fall. We started early in the morning getting ready to tow Paradox down to Tom Nims in Corrales. Tom is a master boat doctor and an extremely amiable man. He and his crew are going to give Paradox a tune-up and a bottom job. As you can see, Tom also loves tractors of any age – and they all run. After leaving Paradox with Tom we went to the Oasis in Corrales for lunch. Ross had a chicken burrito that came with pineapple and strawberries on the side which was a first. I met Jasmine from Denmark – nice to be able to talk Danish right in Corrales!

We are regular customers at David’s New Mexico Tea Company in Albuquerque and went there to stock up with several of his teas to sell on our trip. We were met by his employ Ann who suggested we check out the organic Masala Chai with hot milk and honey. We just did and it is super delicious! We will be featuring a tea called Mana-Tea with Ross’ manatee painting on the label. Driving down Mountain road in our jeep – windows open and 82 degrees F – we passed by a yard sale. We saw 3 accordions and decided to see whether there were any violins for sale. The friendly gentleman said he was moving down by the Zoo to talk to the elephants every day. Nobody stopped by his house anymore he said. He had to have a yard sale to get somebody to talk to. He did say he knew someone who had a violin and 8 guitars maybe for sale, but she was in California for the time being.

    Thank you for sharing! I love old tractors, so that was a treat. Ove and I envy Ross his lunch; we miss the food from Santa Fe so much. Blessings to you both.
