Happy Memorial Day, or F#@% You Murderer!

This Saturday I had the pleasure of going to the Erna Ferguson Library. It is a great library for those who are interested.

While I was there, someone decided that since I have a United States Marine Corps bumper sticker that I am a villain of the highest order. I returned to my mini-van (used for baby hauling, not baby mauling by the way) to find a canary yellow note under my windshield that stated F#@% You Murderer! Of course they did not censor the F word as I did, being a war… Continue

Albuquerque Etsy of the Week-joliedesigns

In celebration of the Porque Craft Fair, I am focusing this week's Etsy highlight on one of the crafters who will be showing her work at the fair, Jill. Jill's seller name on Etsy is joliedesigns. I bought one of her lovely creations for my sister-in-law at… Continue

The New Mexico Veterans' Memorial, Museum, & Conference Center

I thought Memorial Day would be the perfect day to remind folks that Albuquerque has a Veterans' Memorial and Museum. The Visitors' Center and Museum are open Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, 9am-3pm and admission is free. If the thought of dragging your BBQ bloated carcass off to a museum is too much to bear today, don't worry, McCain is speaking there now and the crowds are reportedly tremendous. Maybe… Continue

The wife and I were in Albuquerque on Friday, trying to work out where we're going to live when we grow up and move to ABQ, looking into job prospects.

You know how you can tell I was there?

Because it was raining. It is always raining when I am in Albuquerque. Not to mention the tornadoes I caused when I flew through Denver.

So, when I move, Albuquerque will have its own rain god. I keep telling people that I am moving for the better weather, but I have yet to… Continue

Due Date

Room 637

Twice I was hospitalized in this same room, stared at its four walls, prayed for my unborn child and myself. Upon discharge the second time I remarked, “Next time I am here in this room it will be with my new baby.” My hopeful words were spoken but would never come to pass. – A haze of sadness in December, baby is lost, passed in the ER six stories below Room 637 – Today, May 25, 2008, my due date. I make my rounds in the hospital looking in on new moms and their precious… Continue

The Greatness of Towels

Happy Towel Day to all my fellow Hitchikers! The original quote that referenced the greatness of towels is found in Douglas Adams' imaginative work The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.…

10 minutes in a Nob Hill parking lot

So there I was in a Nob Hill parking lot behind a rainbow painted car with an Om on the trunk, when a couple walked by. She was late 20s, he at least 65. Unaware of my presence, they kissed giddily and she tugged on one of his greying locks. "Oh what's this?" she asked pulling a strand away from his face. "Hey it's bird poop," she crooned. "That means you're…

Conflict Of Time And Interest

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Everyone!

I am glad that it is summer because I get to house sit a great deal. It's like people paying me to take a vacation from family and probably the only opportunity I get to catch up with friends.

I have been house sitting for my old friend Christine and she extended her days through Tuesday, the day after Memorial Day.

Last weekend I went to the Celtic Festival with Sarah and her friend Erin. I got a sunburn on my neck but found out… Continue

Wild Wild West

You ever have one of those days when everything goes wrong? The elevator at work decided not to work. My office is on the third floor and since my knees were screaming at me today, it was a chore having to drag stuff up and down three flights of stairs. I had to go to Costco for supplies in the pouring rain. The… Continue

Duke City's Last Drive-In?

The Sunset Drive In, Off of Isleta and Arenal, in the South Valley, may very well be the only nearly intact drive-in left in the duke city area (I hear there is one working one up in Farmington, and a few other places.)

Perhaps its just Nostalgia, but I remember some pretty good times as a kid going to a drive in and watching a double feature! I'm pretty sure thats how I caught the Return of the Jedi, I think thats where I caught back… Continue

Monument in Our Backyard

Since moving to New Mexico I have traipsed around the state, landing at such exotic locales as White Sands National Monument, Bandelier National Monument, El Malpais National Monument, Fort Union National Monument and the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument (a personal favorite). Yet it took me years to cotton on to a monument we keep stashed away in our… Continue

The Most Peculiar Dream I Think I've Ever Had

It's 3am, and I just had one of the strangest dreams of my life. I need to take this down before I forget it.

I was in the home of DCF's own Jason and Spring, which in this dream had a garage that opened directly onto the kitchen instead of the driveway. In this garage was a grand piano, on which the two bloggers kept a framed picture of me of which they spoke endlessly ("Oh, we had dinner by the piano last night, right next to your picture!"). I mean,… Continue
