Zombie Doughnuts

We don't usually do the Sunday morning doughnut thing, but I was interested in checking this place out. It is located in the South Valley Economic Development Center and it is called

the the Zombie Cafe so how could I resist.

The drive from our house is short and takes us past Tingley Field. There were two baseball games going at 9:00 when we drove by.…

The Sunday Poem: Gary Brower... Blackdom, New Mexico

Ever wonder how we in New Mexico turned out to be so different from our neighbors Texas and Arizona? For one thing, we turned back the forces of slavery at Glorieta. And check out this tribute to poet Maisha Baton, which delves into post-civil war history in eastern New Mexico.… Continue

Biking in the Bosque and Panza Llena

On Friday I had a brilliant idea that my husband and I should go bike riding the next morning with some family. It had been raining on Friday so I wasn't sure if it was going to pan out but it sounded like so much fun. Saturday morning came and it was still sprinkling so we decided to wait until about 10:30 to head out. By that time it was perfect, still overcast but the rain had stopped and the clouds were covering the sun keeping it nice and cool. We decided to hit the… Continue

Lilac, Wisteria, and Other Smells

So the lilacs and wisteria opened this past week. In Fringecrest, anyway. You can see a couple drapey plumes of blue wisteria flowerspike, kinda blurry to the right and behind my younger daughter in the pic above. And allhecksyeah do they smell good! Mostly the lilacs. I mean, I guess wisteria has a nice scent, but it's a manscent, or something-- kind of brutish and olfactorily bold, a Cabernet to the lilac's… Continue

Fuzz Bow Style

In summer of 1948 a man gathered some friends, a carpenter, and some blueprints. In the following months he erected a beautiful home in the SE Heights of Albuquerque. Years went by, deeds transferred, and finally in late 2006 my wife and I bought his house. It was in bad shape, but we had the time and energy to bring it back to life- and we did, one project after another, restoring its original charm while adding a few conveniences. This December the… Continue

UNM Regents Ready to Ink Deal With Texas Dorm Builder

Sin Agua

Sandwiched between this morning's stories of greed at Goldman Sachs and the impact of volcanic ash on European air travel, is a New York Times story about Pajarito Mesa just south of Albuquerque. This is a familiar story to Duke City denizens, but many people elsewhere assume those living "off the grid" do so as a matter of choice, not necessity. And they are often… Continue

Because I have no cohesive narrative in mind...

One thing I hate: Making a sangwich and squeezing the mustard bottle to get an ejaculation of mustard water. That's just disgusting. Yeah, I was in a hurry and didn't shake well.


Who loves tumbleweeds? I love tumbleweeds. On the drive home from work last week I was very nearly broadsided on Jefferson by a swarm of 'em surfing a great gust of wind across the roadway. The wind alone was cool (I may be alone in… Continue

In good times and bad, Price has written about Albuquerque and New Mexico with courage, insight, and integrity.
