In preliminary celebration of New Mexico’s 100th anniversary of joining the union, we attended Centennial Summerfest in downtown Albuquerque yesterday. We had a good time looking at art and becoming reacquainted with new to us restaurants along Central Avenue. Not that horses downtown are anything out of the ordinary around here but highlight of the outing was getting up close and personal with the police department’s mounted unit. These horses are huge Percherons. I’ve always been afraid of horses (don’t tell anybody I said that or I’ll deny it) but I figured these were safe. The APD couldn’t use horses with an inclination to bite or kick, too much liability. I thought it was cool that the horses had their own police badges. My favorite was Romeo. He thought my purse was tasty, maybe it was the color (red) that he liked.
Anyway, if you have time to read, below are posts published this week on this site over the past 7+ years with still more on the archives page. Hope your weekend was fruitful and fun.
