Recovery Cat 7.24.2010

Bob Thomas, a local TV weatherman in 1950's Oklahoma City, was my idol. I imitated him using using a big cardboard box with the front cut out in the shape of a TV screen. I would crawl in through the back with a weather map drawn on some paper and present my report to my somewhat amused brothers.

The ABQ Garden Revisited

Now that we're finally coming out of our unseasonably hot streak, I can wander back into the garden for more than just the minutes it takes to water to keep the poor plants alive. I have a lot of first year plants that went in in the spring. So far, I have lost one lavender, one straightneck squash and one cat nip. The loss of the cat nip was mainly due to the attentions of the neighborhood cats. They literally loved it to… Continue

Last time I was upside-down was when I flipped my wheelchair, which I wrote about here....so this lesson in the… Continue

History of a House and its 'Hood

I’ve always preferred houses with a history. The story of how a neighborhood comes to be is part of this story, but given enough time, the house itself builds a history.

When we first saw our place in Barelas, I was enchanted by the deep window sills created by double adobe walls – perfect perches for cats and children. And I was intrigued by tales of the water well that was somewhere on the property and shut down (or not).
