The Curse of Brillance

You can never be too smart, right? I think I’ve heard that before – at least when it comes to people. But, it seems high intelligence is a bit of a double-edged sword with dogs. Of course, you want your dog to listen to you when you ask him to sit or wait before his dinner – and how great is it when he’s the star of his obedience class?

Dogs with smarts figure things out and really get our number to our chagrin. Take a resident shelter dog we currently have at… 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

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. I am wondering if any of you DCF readers have been a participant?

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

Stephanie Anderson, in memoriam

The news is gradually migrating around town that long-time OFFCenter artist Stephanie Anderson was the cook who was murdered in the Denny's robbery a couple of Saturdays ago. She was a mandala artist and bright-spirited, open hearted friend to many here in the Duke City.

My deepest condolences go out to her family and friends, and she will be missed terribly by all who knew her as a kind, loving citizen with a big smile for anyone… Continue

Audio Books @ the Library

Softball was cancelled tonight so I took the intellectual road over to the public library to renew my library card to be able to download audio books online and while I was there I picked up a few books on tape and CD.

Unfortunately my boom box decided to call it quits and I won't be able to listen to 'A Lesson Before… Continue

Over 300 kinds of BEER!

We just got back from Jubilation Wine & spirits, and they have a whole new room! Lots of new sophisticated adult libations have been added (the lovely lower wine room is as yet the same) . . . and a whole wall of beer!…

Albuquerque Dawning

It's 5:06 on a Tuesday morning. Outside, the birds are relentlessly chirping in the dying Elm tree that hovers over our modest trailer. The traffic on 98th street is ever increasing each time I step out to have a smoke. Somewhere, in the not too distant area, a loud bang goes off. Probably some guy who thinks its funny to blow his fireworks and wake his neighbors. In this area of town though, you never know what evil lurks in the early morning… Continue
