and there’s not another election for, like, almost two years… I’m liking this new Heather Wilson, the one that pretty much disagrees with the President on everything. You saw it via today’s free Journal, too, but I think comments like this deserve repetition: “We need a hard-nosed assessment of what we need, not what we… Read More Heather Catches Up To Reality
I just got through shoveling the walk. In Albuquerque. I’m so happy. And sweaty…now I know why so many drop dead while snow shoveling. Yes, here in little Albuquerque we’ve had us a record snowfall. Accounts vary of course, but I’m guessing we have had about 10 inches down here in the South Valley, with… Read More What? A Post About the Snowstorm? How Unique!

I know…what… Read More I Resolve To Know Even Less Than I Do Now

The Babble is pleasantly stuck up here where the snow matches the ponderosa pines and stellar jays a bit better than it does… Read More Checkin’ In From Pecos Wilderness
