Yesterday, I spent some time cleaning up my house from my travels.  I did basic things like clean the cat litter boxes and aquarium, as well as ran a load of laundry.  I have a lot more cleaning to do, but that was a good start.

I also spent a few hours working on some contract work for UpWork.  I was pleased to get a few things knocked out on that project.

In the evening, I had dinner with an old friend of mine (David) and his brother.  We chatted radio, school, engineering and several other nerdy topics.

In the late evening, I took a walk around UNM’s campus, just to add a few steps to my FitBit.

Yesterday, I spent the day driving from Pittsburgh, PA, to Jersey, VA, to visit my parents.  I operated my amateur radio equipment on the VHF side.  I spent the day playing on six meters and two meters, as there was a VHF contest.  I operated from four new grid squares.

I drove down to Arlington to have dinner with my friends, Martha and Eric, whom I haven’t seen for several years.  We had a great dinner and visit!

In the evening, I drove back into Maryland and then over the Potomac, rather than trying to go down 95 with all of the accidents.

I took a walk along the Potomac river at sunset, and I will post photos on my outdoor blog.

I arrived at my parents’ house in the evening and have had a nice visit with them so far.

Yesterday was a largely uneventful day.  My train was delayed over an hour, due to a mechanical problem, so I was late getting to Magdalena.  Once there, however, I stayed the entire day.

Typically, I go to the Boys and Girls Ranches on Thursday, but they cancelled yesterday due to their Easter Holiday.  Therefore, I stayed late at Magdalena.

I returned to NMT, and had a meeting with a few people about a LabVIEW project.  It looks like some neat work, so we’ll see what develops.

In the evening, I had dinner with an old friend and his wife.  Both of them went to VT years ago, and I knew him as an undergraduate.

Yesterday, I worked at Magdalena all day.  I even stayed late for a school budget meeting.  The budget meeting was all bad news, but we will press on.

Because I stayed late at Magdalena, I missed the bus to Belen.  Instead, I drove the Malibu to the train station and took the train to downtown.

In the evening, I had dinner at Frontier with an old friend of mine from high school who happened to be passing through Albuquerque.  I had not seen him in 18 years!   We spent several hours chatting, and we had a good time.

I then bummed a ride from him back to my truck, which was at another train station.

Thank you for reading my post.

Yesterday, I attended the “New Believers’ Retreat” hosted by the Texico Conference of Seventh Day Adventists.  It was an all-day event, and I had a good time.  It discussed the structure and organization of the church, as well as some of the history.  We also got a brief tour of the Sandia View Academy, or at least the old campus that was recently sold off.  Most of the buildings were condemned.

After this event, I met a few of my friends and hung out for a little bit at Chama River Brewing Company.  My friend was there with his new wife, and so it was good to meet her.

Overall, it was a pleasant day.
