Where I Live:
North Valley
About Me:
Fourth Street is my life line and Los Griegos is my neighborhood. I was raised on McIlheney’s milk, Furr’s cafeteria and Lobo basketball. I have a cousin in every quadrant of the city, a mutt named Zsa Zsa Gabor, a cat named Trixie and a cat named Lola Falana. Familia is what matters most to me and taking pictures of weird mannequins is an obsession of mine. I am the queen of Mod Podge. Often called a museum geek. Oh yeah, one other thing, I'm co-publisher of this site! Hay te watcho y con safos …
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
My neighborhood, Duran's red chile, Powdrell's BBQ, The Frontier, Lobo basketball and The Pit, great museums, great bead stores, cottonwoods, and most of all mi familia and friends.
