"We have something in common, CHapel. Our number was CH 2-9074, and although we've lived ina half dozen places since then, I can't remember a single other phone number, except the one we have now (if I'm lucky). Ours was a party line.…"
"I still remember my number as a child in NY: CHapel 9-5828. Late 1950s I think. In CA now, there are so many area codes- they seem to change from town to town. I'm still getting used to only one in NM."
"I wonder if the phone number still works. Remember when Albuquerque went from 5 to 8 numbers only two of them were letters? Late 50s, I think. CHapel 2-9074, AXtell 5-5534, AMherst 2-2222. I can't remember the rest.
Really enjoying your photos of our quirky town, especially Vulcani * Zadora. Do you think the tire fell off the space between words and rolled to the sidewalk? My photos tend to be tightly cropped, I appreciate how airy and loose yours are in contrast. Cheers, Dan Shaffer, aka AlbuquirkyPhotos. Go to AlbuquirkyPhotos.com for more...
Caught a glimpse of some comments posted by you on DCFix; your approach to life seems friendly, so am hoping to ask a couple of questions. I just joined the club (?), and am unsure of its meanng and purpose; it was suggested to me that DCFix was qualified to help with my web page layout on Etsy.com. I have 5 books -written over past half century - and a number of oil paintings that have been reproduced as Giclees; so need better photos and an attractive layout. Anyway...
Here's a short poem you may like, to be offered by your mostest friend:
Great poem. I use Zuzu Petals because I started using "Zuzu" as a "counter name" you know, the name you give people when you order at a counter, because my name is not very "sayable." I used to write a great deal of poetry, but then I started grad school (ha-ha). I enjoy reading your writing, post more soon. I didn't know that Zuzu's Petals was a poetry website, but I'm glad it is. I live in Santa Fe, but I'm Duke City native.
