A while ago, I got back home from our monthly dinner gathering at Gallup historian Martin Link's.
In a way, we celebrated Thanksgiving in February by having a turkey dinner. One thing caught everyone's attention (including mine) was the biggest Dutch oven anyone there had ever seen.

The evening was filled with good conversation and updates on the Fort Wingate preservation efforts. Will it be a Navajo historical site or a national monument? Link has to provide some information on the buildings the preservation committee wants to see preserved such as their construction, when built, when abandoned and what they were used for. He has to turn in his report in three weeks (or sooner). Dealing with government agencies is so much fun.

The drive into Gallup was a mix of snow, rain and wind. But, by the time we left, the clouds were breaking up, so it should be a clear day tomorrow.
