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 !

Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
The City Lights at night are stunning! I never get tired of them! Lots of fun things to do here, and we love the city ! The Sandia Mountains are so Majestic and awesome to look at ! I never get tired of them either; or the cactus.
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 :)

Great! I'm very glad to have found you, too. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, 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
