We've been in Hobbs, New Mexico since the 23rd, visiting our daughter who lives and works here as a petroleum engineer. It's a nice town, population around 38,000. Plenty of shops and one eight plex movie theatre. The weather has been clear and sunny and bright with temps in the 40's. There was a little dusting of snow on the 24th. We attended Christmas Eve service at Trinity Lutheran Church where our daughter assisted the pastor with serving communion. After that, we ate dinner at one of two Chinese restaurants in town and had excellent Mongolian bar-b-q.
