Profile Information

Where I Live:
SW Albuquerque
About Me:
I just turned 66 on January 14th. I am a Minnesota transplant since Nov. 2004. We moved here because we love the climate and we are both retired. We love traveling; reading; birds; animals; eating; doing fun things, meeting new people, and chatting. We are non-smokers, and non-drinkers. I am a WAC Veteran Vietnam-Era ( Womens Army Corps ). I am involved in a lot of Veterans groups. I love the Golden Oldies music and movies; comedies, love stories, etc. I love bright and pastel colors; fairs; special events; flea markets. I have 2 grown children and I am a Grandma to 2 little boys and one little girl. Albuquerque is a beautiful fun place to live !

Hi Carmen. Oh I know what you mean about suffering from culture shock! When I moved here from Minnesota I might as well have moved to the moon, lol. Have been here three years now and there are still things I miss, but I've found new things to love too. Nice to hear from you :)

Hi Carmen, I'm from the Chicago area, not Minnesota. I thought I'd left Obama when I moved here three years ago, no such luck. Are you a native?

Hi Carmen,

Thanks for telling me about Duke City Fix. I joined the cat lovers group. I am so glad we've been friends for 41 years. I'm also glad to be here in ABQ.

Hi Carmen!
I was just thinking about you the other day. Hope this message finds you well & happy!
At 9:29pm on November 12, 2008, Susan Ciconte said…

Great! I'm very glad to have found you, too. Please send an email to, and I'll respond with a phone number, too. Would love to come visit (don't worry about housekeeping and such.) I think you are near that nine mile hill with that beautiful view of the city. We can also catch up about ole Minnesota. I took care of Canada geese at Lake of the Isles for many years in Minnesota, hence my email address, from years ago. Many great memories. Hope to hear back soon. Susan

I didn't even see the "car" typo. I had to read your post a couple of times before I figured it out.

Add your car story to the "Minnesota Nice" thread on The Thawed site. I'd like to read all about it, and I bet other poeple would too.

WOW! You lived all over the Twin Cities. So have you lost your "Minnesota Nice" yet (see my post on "The Thawed" site).

We lived in St. Louis Park near Hwy 100 and Mtka Blvd for 13 years.
