Morning Fix: Thales says, "Water is all".

  • Waterwise, we're way over budget. And there just aren't enough water police around.
  • Speaking of water, the Western Governors Association meets today to grapple with natural resource issues, including water rights.
  • Be bear aware! Clueless camper survives bruin attack in the Sandias. I'm glad she will be okay and I'm sorry for the loss of her dog, but c'mon folks, isn't rule #1 of camping to Never Put Food In Your Tent?
  • Truancy tallies at APS show that proactive pilot program is putting children back in school.
  • Landscape photographer and UNM alumnus Joe Deal dies. Check out the second image in this slide show for a view of Albuquerque, circa 1975.
  • Monday morning smiles eluding you? See kitten cuteness on former Albuquerque mayor Jim Baca's blog.
  • If that isn't enough of a kitten fix, consider fostering a kitten or a litter of kittens! Albuquerque's Animal Foster Care Month continues for a few more days.

Here's another Albuquerque image from Joe Deal.

San Francisco MOMA (I love that building) is opening a retro of New Topographics on July 17, Joe Deal's Albuquerque images. Frank Gohlke also has some Albuquerque images in this show, plus John Schott's Route 66 series.

Whew - I've successfully diverted my thinking from fostering kittens (not practical with a broken ankle) to planning a trip to the other SF.

NEVER KEEP FOOD IN YOUR TENT. Good grief, even I know that. I'm glad she's going to be ok.

Another photo from Joe Deal. After browsing around on Google maps, I think this area is around Manor Ct and Hilldale Rd NE in the foothills by I-40

NEVER KEEP POTATO CHIPS, GUMMI BEARS AND COKE IN YOUR TENT. Anyone who camps out in a day use only campground where NO CAMPING is allowed should know that, right?

I'm just sorry their little doggy had to pay for their stupidity.

Not to mention the bear.
