Eclipse over Albuquerque

This image reminds me of one of those Star War scenes from one of the originals. I don't even mind the reverse reflection.

The rest of the images in larger size can be seen

12 Things to do in the Q this Summer

Please excuse the headline above.  I was overcome by cuteness.  Led by rhyme, not reason.  You might, however, find one or two things below that you never had thought about doing.  I did.  I wrote this piece originally for NMMarketplace.  I must say that Fixers are pretty hip to most everything there is to…

Nob Hill Alert

Last week my neighbor had a break in, and someone stole their son's laptop. I live behind them, by the alley. I just came home and found a man standing in the alley by my apt., drinking a beer.

As soon as I drove up, he and his beer walked to Coal, heading westbound. After a few blocks, he cut into…
