Back at Home
Aren't mountains lovely? This view of the Sandia Mountains was right outside my hotel room in Albuquerque. Apparently there's a tram ride to the top of the mountain range. Unfortunately, we were kept busy in meetings all day and got no closer to the mountains than this.
New Mexico is a fascinating place and one that I'd love to explore further some day. Considered a "minority majority" state, the population is made up of more Native Americans and Hispanics than any other ethnic group.
Here's a fact you may not know about Albuquerque. A few years ago they outlawed the practice of selling dogs and cats from pet stores. What a great way to minimize the puppy mill industry. (Are you listening, Missouri?)
Meanwhile, back at home, snow is in drifts everywhere. I missed the first major winter storm in two years and I'm not one bit sorry. In fact, I just made a quick phone call.
Hello, Spring? It's me. I can't wait for your lusciously plump and single-mindedly spectacular appearance.
Coming anytime soon?
