DimeStories of Albuquerque Community

Posted on November 14, 2016 at 11:30am 5 Comments

I don't know about you, but the last couple of weeks have been an emotional ride.  That is an understatement.  I could barely get out of bed on Wednesday morning and my eyes were so swollen from crying I could hardly blink.  I've never been so emotional about an election in my life.  That said, this…


DimeStories of Albuquerque: Terri Klein

Terri Klein is small and quiet—until she starts reading a DimeStory at one of our monthly open mic events… then her theater background becomes obvious. She says DimeStories brings out the side of her that most people are surprised to know exists. “When I am not performing or with people I know…


DimeStories of Albuquerque: Pamela Hirst

One of the great things about partnering up with Merimee Moffitt  to start the Duke City DimeStories chapter back in 2010 was that she knows everyone!  One of the people she brought to DimeStories was Pamela Hirst.  And while Pamela hasn’t attended a lot of DimeStories, when she does, she always leaves an…

Thank you for the Lead & Coal/ART post. I'm also very glad to see that University Heights is active and engaged on these issues. I'll plan to attend the meeting next Tuesday.

I haven't seen much evidence for similar action on the part of Silver Hill - is this an accurate perception or are there things bubbling under the surface? (I know the SHNA isn't always great about spreading the word to those of us on Lead). If my assessment is accurate, what course of action could Silver Hill folks take to get involved?

I keep forgetting to drop you a note and it's been a couple of weeks, but I wanted to say "thanks" from one of your neighbors for speaking up in the alibi about the lead/coal project.

You took a good photo of me at the Dia de los Muertos parade--I am carrying the coffin and have my face painted like a skull ;). I would like it if you sent me a jpeg of that photo! I am not very photogenic, and it's the best one yet! Thanks!

Hi JeSais-
I just realized I never got back to you about the rain barrels after you were nice enough to respond to my questions. Thanks again for your help. The story appeared in the Home section on July 25.

Hello JeSais-
I noticed your post about rain barrels and thought I would see which you ended up purchasing. I am working on a story on choosing rain barrels for the Albuquerque Journal's Home section and your insight would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Amanda Schoenberg

My husband and I moved to Albuquerque from San Diego in November, so this is our first spring here too. It seems that suddenly the blooms are everywhere, white, yellow and purple. I'm not sure what they are (cherry trees, etc?) I am hoping that next year I won't have allergies; I've been told it takes a year or so to become sensitive to pollens.

Thanks for walking me through the way to resign from The Single Life Group! I probably am a better fit among the Cat People Group, which I don't know if there is one, but I wouldn't bet against it. Je ne connais pas la plupart des choses, but I do know cats cannot love.

Thank you so much for your input. I have changed his diet and he eats dry food specifically for diabetic cats, which is the mainstay of his diet, and then I give him Fancy Feast before his insulin shots. He does have neuropathy in his back legs, which concerns me. He first showed signs of diabetes in June, but he's also hyperthyroid and I thought his weight loss and water drinking were attributable to that. It was his neuropathy that caught my attention in October. He had dental surgery in May and lab work done at that time, and his glucose was normal. Perhaps the surgery tipped him over the edge, or something? I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think he was diabetic for a long time before it was caught. Right now he's only on one unit of insulin twice a day and he's been checked for a UTI.

Again, thanks, and I may have some questions for you as I journey down this path with him. He's such a sweet boy and I want him around as long as possible.
