Mailboxes in Corrales

assorted rural mailboxes in Corrales

Rural mailboxes in Corrales. They are almost a thing of a past, having mostly been replaced by the Postal Service with ugly large “mailbox units.”


Founders Day

Yesterday featured a Founders Day celebration in Old Town Albuquerque, commemorating Albuquerque’s 306th anniversary along with the 100th anniversary of New Mexican statehood. There were a number of larger-than-life-size “puppets” hanging around Old Town, representing Albuquerque’s wide diversity of peoples. I didn’t catch the full name of the puppet-maker but believe his/her last name is Zamora.


Happy Easter/Spring!

Spring is in full flower in Albuquerque these days — just in time for Easter!

Cottonwoods reflected in the water of a ditch.

Close enough to spring for the mustard weed to flourish — yet the cottonwoods, reflected in a Corrales ditch, are still bare.
