Mrs. Ett_Sophia Diego is Alive, residing someplace as Moriarty, aka Lulu

I only resorted to Facebook, so that I could
greet my friends and playbill my writings.
It has been awhile since I’ve made a journal entry. Along with other tasks, I found a new piece of evidence in among the papers at the Diego Estate. Now I realize, I’ve been had. I’ve squandered a good amount of time researching a red herring. Thinking it was another putt putt restoration foray I ventured into a place called Gardens of Time. I noticed other cavern explorers went on this journey too. How time consuming or dangerous could it be?

Much to my horror, I am completely waylaid. The only mystery solved is one: Mrs. Diego does return to the estate. The Gardens of Time decoy was not part of my findings when I first came here. Disguised as a woman named Lulu, Mrs. Diego sauntered through my face book account and played with my preferences. She is a far greater threat and far more diabolical than I originally thought. I thought she was dead. Drowned in the flood or gone missing at sea trying to escape.

I am now held hostage by own procrastinative tendences.
Oh to get back to my single minded pursuits!
Instead she continues to amuse me with gifts of time machine energy, suggestions to find new friends, topiaries, trinkets, apothecaries and hidden image puzzles that I am very slow (and cheat) to solve. Worse yet, she knows me too well. I will complete every destination’s quest for every chapter, regardless of whether it helps me to progress. One of the destination quests asked me to find hidden clues with a flashlight. Although I find the clues, a technical snafu never changes my status, but I continue to go back there anyway. With a belly ache I keep looking for coins. Morning, noon and night I am trying lure Midtown Museum customers to this cookie cutter berg. I need an intervention ASAP.

Once I am freed from this red herring of a Uncle Wiggly diversion, I will be back to find out where Mrs. Diego is staying. While it is not likely I can go cold turkey, my long suffering husband suggested I see a shrink who can wean me away from the road to gold coins and easy resolutions. It won’t be a cake walk. My husband knows that I am easily persuaded to take the path of least resistance during stressful times.

Artifact - News Clipping #43

The Midtown Ladies Guild dried out a soggy news clipping, coded it NC43 and sent it to me this past week. Some of the print was difficult to read, but I could make out the following:

Las Cruces - The left northbound travel lane will be closed at 10 p.m. on Sunday, April 14 on IS 55 for sinkhole repairs at mile marker 212.3 near the Alamogordo and Las Cruces County line. It is unknown when the left lane will be reopened to traffic but motorists should anticipate single lane traffic in this area for much of the day on Monday, April 16. This location is between exit 205 at RR 51 in the Gila area of Old Mesilla
County and exit 213 at Route 11 in the west northwest area of Old Mesilla County. This sinkhole is not associated with the sinkhole repaired on D4 northbound in Roswell County on March 5.

Because the sinkhole at mile marker 212.3 is located in the northbound ditch line next to the median, much of the work will occur on the left shoulder. To ensure the safety of workers in the area and allow for the necessary equipment to be used, the left travel lane will be closed in this area. The New Mexico Department of Transportation’s on-call contractor for these repairs is Gaskill Excavation Inc. of New York. The sinkhole will be excavated and filled with stone and earth material to stabilize the hole. This work can take hours depending on how deep the sinkhole is, which cannot be determined until excavation begins.

Traffic alerts and traveler information also are available at 511NM.org. For other assistance call the NMDOT Customer Service Center, available 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week.
