All Stories (6,600)


When my son was tiny his bedtime stalling tactics were not another drink of water or trip to the bathroom but big philosophical questions. Maybe he realized that his parents were geeks and thinking too much is family trait so this would get more mileage than other things. But, I think that his little brains just couldn't stop working. "Mom, did God make volcanoes?"

"How do they make shoes"

"Will Iris dog go to heaven""

"Why are some… Continue

Freak show @ Petroglyph National Monument

Of all the freak shows on earth, one of the strangest occurs quite regularly at the Albuquerque Volcanoes. It's the cyclical flux of bugs that make their appearance throughout the Petroglyph National Monument on Albuquerque's west side.

Over numerous hikes at the Albuquerque Volcanoes, I've witnessed oddities such as: giant furry red ants, strange swarms of caterpillars, and ground burrowing… Continue

Indigo Girls/Brandi Carlisle @ the ABQ Zoo

Brandi Carlisle and the Twins at ABQ Zoo 2008

Karlita and I started scheming about how we were going to make it to this show months ago, long before the move to ABQ was on the radar. We went through a lot of crap to get this far, and getting to see the girls was to be the prize for all our work. About mid-week Karla asked me if we needed to get tickets for the show, and I assured her I had seen over a dozen shows at the zoo, and there was… Continue

Getting away with shit

The down side of being a middle-aged, white female is that you are invisible. Clerks step on your foot on their way to help younger customers. Nobody suspects or accuses you of doing anything exciting or illicit. You become your own mom.

So I let it work for me.

When you're stereotyped, it's amazing what shit you can get away with.

One year - I think Al Gore was running for president - there was a big rally at the… Continue

Drag Racing on Montgomery

So I live with Montgomery Boulevard as my backyard--literally there's the back of the house, a postage stamp-sized backyard, a wall, sidewalk, berm--and then 6 lanes of Montgomery Boulevard. I live on Drag Race Alley--the stretch between Juan Tabo and Tramway. Other than the rarely changing light at Cairo in front of El Dorado High School--it's a straight shot all the way to Tramway from Juan Tabo.

Drag Race Alley impacts significantly the quality of life for every residential… Continue

Cool Cars in ABQ

I've been thinking a lot about cars lately. We can't avoid the gas price news and I can't avoid the 4-month Prius waiting list. Or my current PT Cruiser giving up the ghost (hopefully just temporarily) and sitting like a silver toad in the driveway covered with elm sap and wind dust - unable (or unwilling) to start.

Route 66 - the ultimate ribbon of shrine to the automobile - cuts right through the middle of our fair city. Welcome to the… Continue
