This is a 1/4 sized Disaster breakfast burrito that is served at Hurricane’s Restaurant in Albuquerque, NM. There is also a half-sized portion and, of course, a full-sized portion. Normally I take at least half of the 1/4 sized portion home and snack on it for the next day. The best things about food in Albuquerque are the green and red chilies that are served on so many items on the menus. They just zing things up a bit. 20120520
Albuquerque has a lot of museums. One of the best is the Nuclear Museum. The state is known for it’s relationship with nuclear energy. 20120520
I’ve been spending some time in Albuquerque, NM in the last few months. A good friend from high school lives there and invites me to come out. I like Albuquerque. It’s a unique town. It’s not too big and it’s not too small. I get to ride my bike around town and take in some of the more scenic spots. I like the city for several reasons. It’s pretty laid back. There are a lot of interesting people there. There’s some history. It’s close to a ski resort. There are mountains and hiking trails. It has a good bus system. 20111101
This picture was taken some time during 1966-67. What you have here are a couple of high-school friends who were posing for someone’s mom. I’m not sure where the picture was taken. I got a copy of it in May of 2011. That means I had to wait for about 45 years before I got to see it. That might make me a little upset if not for the fact that I’m just glad to have the picture. This is Tom, a friend who recently passed away. I’m very glad that I got to spend some time with him over the years. We were good friends in high school and roommates in college. He would eventually go to Albuquerque to work at Sandia Labs. I stayed in Oklahoma to be a computer grunt. The last time I saw Tom was a couple of weeks before he passed. God have mercy on his soul.
This is a picture of my friend Tom’s back porch. It was taken after the funeral. A bunch of people gathered on his back porch. I will say one thing for Tom, he knew how to create a real nice back porch and back yard. I’d been there before and had found it very relaxing. Everyone I met who had ever been there always talked about what a great back porch he had. What’s even nicer is that the house stayed in the "family" and I’ll probably get to enjoy it again when I go back to Albuquerque. AS I get old, I probably need to find more places where I can go and just relax. This is one of them. I’m looking for others, by the way.
It’s a pancake machine. It’s the first one I’ve ever seen. It was located at the hotel where I stayed in Albuquerque when I attended services for my deceased friend. I never did get to try out the pancakes. There was just so many other things to eat there that I forgot all about getting a pancake. I should have got one. All a person had to do was to push a button and out came a pancake.
I can only sit around so long. I was in Albuquerque. I was sitting around on a back porch. There was a bicycle in the back yard. I asked if I could ride it. I decided to ride it over to the University of New Mexico. I met his nice man outside of the Student Union on the campus. We had a nice talk.
It’s my friend John. We were in Albuquerque to see our friend Tom. We went to Blakes to get one of their famous green chile cheeseburgers. Yum. Double Yum.
That’s me sitting outside on a bench at the Albuquerque hospital with my friend Tom and a couple of friends. Tom had to go out periodically and have a smoke. Actually, the day was really nice. It was a good day to go outside and sit around on a bench for a while.
I attended Easter Mass at the San Felipe de Neri Church. This church is a Catholic church located on the north side of Old Town Plaza in Albuquerque. It was built in n 1793, and is supposed to be the oldest surviving building in the city of Albuquerque.
