A slice of Americana
Like many small places around America Deming, NM has an event every year that draws the locals and visitors to their town. In the case of Deming they have Duck Races! A desert town in southern NM host the Great American Duck Race every year http://www.demingduckrace.com/. I’ve lived in the region since 1976 and this is the 1st year I’ve attended. It was goofy and fun. Ginger and I took the little dogs in the RV and went up to Deming. We knew dogs were not allowed at the races so we left the babies in the A/C in the RV while we went to the duck races. We went to the Duck Mart (vendors) ate some yummy fair food, raced a duck and watched the Great American Tortilla Toss. Better than Walmart and McDonalds!
Of course I had to race a duck, but unfortunately my duck was more interested in taking a duck bath than winning the race. But hey you are at the duck race, you have to race a duck!
To reward the girls for waiting for us in the RV we took a side trip to Rock Hound State Park http://www.newmexico.org/explore/state_parks/rockhound.php
A fun little staycation in our part of the world.
