Getting the Boot

Posted on September 8, 2010 at 7:07pm 17 Comments



So, I’m standing on my front porch today watching a City vehicle stop in front of my house. Someone gets out and begins rummaging around in the back of truck, eventually producing a large orange boot and I think “wow, bummer - glad that isn’t me!” But it turns out, it IS!

Hey Wade. Sure sounds like you are someone I should meet. I am a new member of Duke City Fix. I will be moving to Albq. in Feb. 09. I am a muralist, decorative & fine artist. Still trying to figure out where to live, set up a studio/workshop, etc. My budget is real tight, unfortunately. I live in Milwaukee, WI. Can't take the winters anymore. Lot's of other reasons for the move. Ok if I look you up when I arrive? Need to connect with the thriving art scene in Duke City. If you are curious...my website is www.rickcitta.com
Happy Holidays.
Rick Citta.
