A Scooter Moment

After a long winter I took my scooter to the shop last week for its annual tune-up and oil change.  I was happily riding home this afternoon when a little black car with its windows rolled down pulled up next to me and honked. The driver was apparently angry about something and while busily yelling at me slowed and broke his lane several times.  Then he pulled ahead but seemed to want to continue his little road rage moment.

Well, that sounds bad.  And it wasn't comfortable or safe.…

Strolling to Paris for Lunch

Just a couple minutes away from my office in Nob Hill are three magical little cafe's, one serves Columbian food, one French food, and one Italian food.  Today I choose to have lunch at P'Louis Bistro.  Once inside I wiggled my deluxe frame into one of nine tables snuggled along the walls.  My first impression was…

First Date: City Council Style

I’ve been thinking a lot about first dates lately.

Partly because I saw a movie, Wetlands (trailer is NSFW), over the weekend that would be an interesting first date litmus test for many things. The final showing is tonight,…

The wolf in the graveyard of the volcanos

Monday morning I was prepared for the wolf.  I didn't know exactly where it would end up, but I knew that it would be on the west side of Albuquerque, and I also knew exactly what time it would leave.

That's the great thing about moon rise / moon set tables, you can find out just when and where you need to…

What's Wrong With Albuquerque? Not a Damn Thing!

     I’ve been reading some nasty words lately from Duke City Fixers on what’s wrong with Albuquerque.

     What’s wrong with Albuquerque? 

     Not a damn thing!

     Here’s what a couple of notable Albuquerqueans have said about the Duke City. I can find many more that are equally powerful, but you grumblers probably can't stand more than two

Walking on broken glass

One of my favorite spots in Albuquerque is a dump. Literally.

It's hard to believe the bosque is home to one of Albuquerque's old dumps, but it's a glorious open air mosaic surrounded by a canopy of cottonwoods. What's really fun is that it predates the widespread use of plastic and foam, so it's almost all…

Duke City Dancing: An Odyssey



Beginnings




For me, it started because I was forty, single, and too much of a homebody.  Never out on weekend nights, my sister Kris and my good friend Wendy took it upon themselves to kickstart my social life by giving me that gift…
