Photographer Dave Schuhmann continues to take photos of the progress at Denny's. The exterior is looking good.
Dave says: "Not much new to look at, outside progress is noticeable but not spectacular.
"I suppose all the windows are in. Don't know if the electrical work to pass the inspection has been done. From the looks of this it won't look much like any other Denny's."

Chris Trujillo, shown at left, who was convinced by Copper Country Senior Olympics Coordinator Mario Quintana to play in the Copper Country Senior Olympics, recently placed second at nationals.
"I started playing golf when I was three years old," Trujillo said. "Right here at Scott Park in Silver City and at the Hurley Golf Course. Ron Doan was the pro at Scott Park, and he taught me.
"Mario talked me into doing Senior Olympics," Trujillo laughed. "I won last year in Roswell at the state competition and went to Birmingham, Alabama, this year and got second."
He shot well throughout the tournament until the last day. "I shot an 80. I choked and lost by one shot. I also do bowling, but not well enough for nationals."
Trujillo said he is looking forward to 2019 when the National Senior Olympics will be played in Albuquerque.
