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.

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.

A gnawed-at old wet sofa is pressed in between an off-white clothes dryer and a lineup of roly 2103 garbages. Two doors' worth of a lineup of green garages are blocked by a roly wooden trailer. A man descends an outdoor staircase.

Somewhere the sofa lost its ass cushions. Upon my hard-drive I've got an alternative wider-angle version of this picture that fully shows a *4th* 2103 garbage, but I do not like it as much because it hasn't got a person.

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…

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!
