Lavender in the Village Pet Parade! And other Fun Stuff

Oh WEEEEE Doggies it's hot today...and it was yesterday and the day before, I'm ready for Fall!!

Ha! Finally got me a little laptop here in the store so I can keep ya'all up to date on all the happenings easier! (Thanks Crissi!!)

Well, summer is in full swing and it's hotter then heck. I trust my fellow DCFer's are doing all they can to keep their furry side-kicks cool and comfy.

Here's a couple of fun things you can do:

Honey, Yogurt (PLAIN!!,… Continue

Turning 40 in Albuquerque

Turning Forty in Albuquerque

This year my husband turns forty. Though the cursed F-word will take him first, I’m not too far behind.

Tonight, sprawled beneath our ceiling fan, he says, “It seems we should have more things.”

This sentence, whispered in a somber darkness, surprises me. We are not materialistic people—nor do we ascribe to any sort of inert rebellion of thinglessness. We are just too lazy and poor to… Continue

The Most Friendly Hurricanes

Mondays are becoming my favorite day of the week. Not only is Monday the only day I have off but the past two Mondays I have had to take my friend Steve to work at the diner/drive-in Hurricanes.

Steve started working at Hurricanes back in 2007 when he had dropped out of school and was looking for a job. Back then Hurricanes had two locations - Lomas & Washington, and Eubank & Candelaria. He worked at the Eubank location, getting the job through his neighbor who was a cook.… Continue

Two a Day: taking it a little easy

I transplanted something and not only didn't it die, it grew a flower. I love Globemallow!

My Two a Day guideline had a bit of a hiccup this week in the form of me feeling funky on Thursday and being unwilling to work in the rain much on Friday. In spite of the slowdowns I was able to start on a couple of projects that have been on my to do list for as long… Continue

A Little Night Music

Albuquerque boasts a hugely talented coterie of professional musicians, of every conceivable style, instrument and body type. They're also a remarkably generous bunch, who seem to look for ways to give back to the community. So, please allow me to make a shameless plug for "Thursday Evening Musicales," a series of July concerts to benefit Albuquerque Healthcare for the… Continue

Richard Romero wants citizen input on public safety

The recent string of tragic events in our community serve as a sobering reminder of the public safety problems that our city has been plagued with for many years. Its unfortunate that in a city the size of Albuquerque, the current mayor deems it necessary to be accompanied by an armed, three man security detail during his daily and after hours activities.

Richard Romero has a definite… Continue

ABQ. CPA:Citizen's Police Academy (APD)

I am in my third week of the Albuquerque Police Departments' CPA program, the 35th CPA class offered. It is a 12 week course (classes meet twice a week with optional weekend field trips) of fairly amazing adventures offered for free to Albuquerque residents by the Albuquerque Police Department.
