I shall not walk between the vanished roofs of the ancient round rooms.

If tourism visits upon New Mexico.

  • TRAFFFIC SIGNAL access hatch panel!

    The welder made the three 'F's in TRAFFFIC so flamboyantly wide that he or she almost ran out of room for the message. Imagine if there were some kind of system of abbreviations or codes that all of the different kinds of utility workers would be able to…

  • Nice spot for a bullseye petroglyph.

    I agree with the Jornada Mogollon people(s) of circa 1000-1400 CE that this was a good-looking place for putting a bullseye on a rock, here where there is a broad view out across an expanse of land. ------------------------ At the Three Rivers Petroglyp…

  • Those were the wasted days of adulthood!

    On what occasion would real-life bears ever sit together in upturned baskets and hold wreaths, it's incongruous. Why are snickerdoodles the only food. This lady had a record player in her house all through her childhood but never learned how to use it.…

  • Tire tracks 'spinal column' of White Sands.

    I ended up being glad that the parking lot sand plowmen made this interesting little error during their most recent plowjob. It was an interesting little error. ----------------------- In White Sands National Monument in western Otero County, New Mexic…


  • Assignment of the responsibility for all this mess.

    Just following orders!, you can feel free to call the mayor's office if you need to complain. I know I'd be angry too if I were you but none of this was my decision. ----------------------- In Albuquerque, New Mexico, on May 30th, 2009, on the west sid…

  • Blue Raspberry, Orange, Cherry, & Lemon-Lime Slush Puppies & Grand Prix Cigarettes.

    Grand Prix Cigarettes are named for the notion of wrapping your lips around the active tailpipe of a Pontiac Grand Prix. Slush Puppies are named for hushpuppies which are greazy deep-fried balls of onion-flavoured cornmeal. Icee Corp bought Slush Puppie…

  • Albuquerque fur maintenance and storage; I wouldn't've thought there'd be a need for fur storage in Albuquerque because the residents wear their furs all year around?

    All year around they sport furs, they turn out in furs. I read where Albuquerque's the city that's the biggest into furs in all of the U.S. But definitely a good ads lesson here: For ads, choose pix in which potential customers'll maybe recognize either…

  • "Creamland: The Milk of New Mexico," industrial trailerloads of creamy gallons of milk feast.

    The tv ads show a gallon of Vitamin D Whole being emptied onto a parcel of desert on a broiling/roasting hot day. The milk sizzles and steams when it hits the hot dirt. ----------------------- In Albuquerque, New Mexico, on May 25th, 2009, along the…

  • "A tiger is a bumblebee is nothing," silliness of Albuquerque youths, out late hanging out among unhitched semi-trailers in gravel parking lots, wasting away their american lives.

    Sometime they're gonna maybe discover that they wish they could get their youngness back!, so that they could do something better with it than what they did, those kids. The grayed-out are not antigraffiti: Formerly the trailer read "CAROLINA." --------…


  • Skywriting of the side of a dumpster I visited one day.

    It's called "skywriting," all of the young are trying it I heard. You try to draw what the sky looks like to you at a particular time. Some areas are tricky to try to represent some days! ----------------------- In Albuquerque, New Mexico, on May 25th…

  • The city of Albuquerque is well-known for the all-the-time hot airballoonery of its rich.

    All of the skies in Albuquerque are filled with hot airballoons every damn morning so I told myself not to get excited about them. I said, "The sun's completely in the wrong place and my .jpgs are not gonna like that at all. And 3 bollards of a nondrivew…

  • "Bandelier National Monument" descending spaceship-shape of ancient-times cliffdwelling.

    Takes me way back to the Chariots of the Gods? megamania of the U.S. circa 1960s-1970s. I think Bandelier National Monument ought to inaugurate some kind of a "Movies in the Park" summer series where movies get projected onto the walls of the cliffs, @ s…
