"Lovely story. I'm a composter myself, and I recommend it to every homeowner. There are many sites on the net that can teach a person to get the job done. Not that a person has to put someone out of work, but just the opposite. Composting is a…"

About Me:
My real name is Jon Knudsen. Unfortunately "Jon Knudsen" is both hard to pronounce and to remember. Also, Johnny _Mango seems to be a braver person than Jon Knudsen. And better looking. Maybe that's why Jon's GF MaryAnn calls him "Johnny" most of the time.

That Person at the Door

Posted on November 25, 2014 at 10:30am 3 Comments

NOB HILL--When the doorbell rang last week I answered it.  Standing on the other side of my screen door was Joseph Benevidez.  “I’m looking for work,” he said.  “Do you need someone to rake your leaves?”



I had been waiting for someone just like Joseph to show up.  “Sure,”  I answered.  Our yard was full…

Albuquerque’s Pigeons: Fines, Hawks, & British Logic

NOB HILL--Feeding pigeons is a criminal act...feeding feral pigeons, that is.  Even if you have a regular old bird feeder and it attracts “significant numbers of pigeons” or creates “conditions that constitute a pigeon nuisance” you can be fined.  Of course, warm-hearted souls who sit on park benches and toss…

Cimarron & The St. James Hotel

Posted on November 4, 2014 at 10:30am 2 Comments

Rudy Coca looked me in the eye and leaned over the bar. “I’ve got the reputation of being the bartender that drinks with ghosts,” he said.  I took a long drink of my root beer and let that statement sink in.  Yes, we were in a hotel that was supposed to be haunted.  Still, ghosts would seem to be the…

The Last Chance To Speak, As The BRT Rolls Through Nob Hill

CAMPUS BLVD & TULANE NE--MaryAnn and I were there at what was advertised as the last chance to give input about the Bus Rapid Transit project that will run down Central Ave.  Monte Vista Christian Church was the scene of the “poster session.”  Quite a few people showed up to look at the…

Little Beaver Town, or what’s left of it, is still open for business

Posted on October 21, 2014 at 10:30am 8 Comments

OLD ROUTE 66 EAST OF TRAMWAY--Maybe you’ve been asking yourself, “What ever happened to Little Beaver Town?”  But some of you may not have been alive in the late fifties, so let me add a little background: at one time Red Ryder and his sidekick Little Beaver were hot sellers on every comic book rack…

Thanks for your blog about the backwardness of UNM when it comes to education and funding. :) On another note, many profs at UNM have little slips of paper that say, "I make ___ days of the football coach's salary to educate the students at UNM." Generally in the 20's or below...

Thanks Johnny. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I go 'home' and vist the Roswell Museum and Art Center. Being from there, I've always been a Peter Hurd fan and it's nice to see more art in Roswell outside of the alien murals!

Hey John. Great to hear from you! I am glad you contacted me. I just changed jobs and am staying a lot more local to town after 4 years of pretty constant travel. I am a member a local computer user group that will meet on DukeCityFix so I figured I would join, but did not expect to immediately find a few blasts from my past. Good times! I still have many fond memories of "Roach City" and Monte Vista...

I looked over you blog from your cycling trip. That looked awesome.

Wow, Jon. It was so good to see you with Doris. Your house looks wonderful. It looks like you. Take care. I hope to see you soon. Hopefully, I will have a good year. One never quite knows at Mental Vista given its cast of characters. Carri is working as an events organizer for Richard Romero. Love, Holly
