Hello all. I've had the best time playing "tourist" with my house guest, Flat Susan. She arrived safely and hasn't stopped talking about all her adventures. She's the perfect house guest, as you can imagine.
Our first stop was at a yard sale that my friend, Alyce was having. She always has neat stuff and I wanted to introduce her to Flat Susan. She's one of my besties in the world.Another one of my besties and I went to Santa Fe to show Flat Susan a few of the sites. I must admit, by the end of the day we were all tired. Along the way Flat Susan had a little accident as her leg fell off. I'm so glad she came with a First Aid Kit! I'm happy to report that she made it through the operation and has two legs, once again.
Poppy, my conure, needed some food so we stopped at Feathered Friends. While we were there we said hello to the birds.

|Flat Susan wanted to go swimming in the salsa but I said it might not be a good idea.|
|Like any good tourist, she was ready to sample everything. Here's a taco, green chile relleno, enchilada, beans and rice.|
|These are called sopapillas. That's honey butter right behind Flat Susan. |
She wanted to take one home to use as a bed. Silly girl.
|Our lovely waitress. She loved meeting Flat Susan, who is so well traveled.|
|I took this photo from inside the church. Isn't the stained glass beautiful!|

She got a little wild. At one point she was so taken with a squash blossom necklace that she rode it like, well, a maverick!
|She loved this one too but refrained from trying it on.|
|Santa Fe fashion - turquoise jewelry and a concho belt.|
|Flat Susan was so excited that she kept moving, hence the blurry photo.|
The next two photos are of the native americans selling their wares on the Plaza. You can find some good bargains and it's nice buying from the artisan.
From here we drove to Hobby Lobby. I bought a few more things here too. This is where Flat Susan lost her leg (well, I found it on the floor). I didn't take any photos inside the store.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I certainly had a wonderful time with Flat Susan! She'll be on her way to her next hostess real soon.
