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…

"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."

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.

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!

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.

Naw I'm just kiddin, they are actual plantlife. But unfortunately they are unidentifiable and they haven't got a name.* Fortunately there's nothing like them anyplace else on the internet.

Downwardly we see: Albuquerquetian landscaping wad @ sidewalkside.  Shake it!
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…

Some newish Albuquerque condominiums.
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 know water's kind of scarce but is there anything els…

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…

Here come the waters in the stream known as the "Alameda Drain."  It just got finished flowing underneath of I-40!
I said, "Welcome to Albuquerque, ditch!" The Alameda Drain is no Río Grändé but it definitely looks prettiest early in the morning. I predict it'll be the perfect ecosystem for 1000+ different kinds of things. The large Best Western hotel sign back the…

To sit upon, for times when we wait for buses in Albuquerque.
There is nothing wrong with the way the bench is shaped, and to sit upon it feels like getting a massage if I position myself certain ways. I worry that somebody's not coming through and chopping off the tops of the shrubbery often enough.

One of the famous beauteous Albuquerque honeysuckle bushes.
I heard honeysuckle is the official city flower of the City of Albuquerque.
