It was 6pm when we left Austin.  Betsy had spent the day at the TxSCC, and I grocery shopped, did laundry, and ran the dog around in two different parks.  You see, a thirteen hour drive (not including stops) lay ahead of us.  Punkin' McCervarich (one of the dog's many nicknames) needed to be TIRED.  In 24 hours, we were due in Albuquerque.

Aqui was really into these excellent layering necklaces.
