Aaahhh....you know it's fall in New Mexico when it's 80 degrees during the day and 58 degrees at night. Wonderful sleeping weather!
The other sign is one of these....
......in the parking lot of every grocery store and WalMart. For those that don't know...it's a chili roaster.
I've lived here for 19 years and still haven't developed a taste for chili. It is way too stinkin' hot!! I love the smell, though.
Once these appear, then we know that Balloon Fiesta!!!....is right around the corner!!
This year it will be October 3rd-12th. So, if you're in the neighborhood, stop by. You'll love it! Our population increases by about 50,000, traffic is crazy and the sky is filled with color. It's truly a wonderful event to see!
