The welder made the three 'F's in TRAFFFIC so flamboyantly wide that he or she almost ran out of room for the message.

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.

"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.

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?

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…

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!

"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…

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…

I wish I knew how to figure out what the kind of plant is but I guess I'm just completely helpless. If anybody knows the name I'd love to hear it!, but still I'll feel really stupid for not knowing how to find out for myself.

I wish I could see a bunch…

It looks like it might be a nice area to live in if you're fond of particular colours. There are sidewalks on both sides of the streeeeet and that's rare in certain neighbourhoods of some cities.

I shall never try to forget my walks among the city of Albuquerque.
I like to see the things that the big bushes do when the chainlink gets near them. I wish that the buses ran more often. I can not think of anything else that could or should be where the spread of gravel is.

Can you think of ways that the area might h…
