It has been light years since I have eaten at a Furr’s Buffet. This one is always crowded so the food must be good. It’s family friendly – there are always kids running around outside. Mom probably sent Dad out with the kids so she could eat in peace.
The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is going to be here before we know it. This year it runs from October 7th to October 15th. Two of my favorite events are the Special Shape Glowdeo and the Special Shapes Mass Ascension. Here’s this years calendar of events.
Balloon Fiesta is one of my favorite happenings in Albuquerque. While it is a whole lot of fun to go down to Balloon Fiesta Park and see the mass ascensions ( 100’s of balloons all going up at once) you can actually see the balloons from all over the city. Hundreds of hot air balloons flying all at once is an amazing sight.
I like rainy day. I love the smell of the rain especially here in the desert. It smells good everywhere but it’s a bit different here. That said, I was so glad I didn’t have to get out of the truck one this particular day as it was cold and windy.
This is a follow-up post to the Jan 23rd post. McDonald’s is nothing but a giant hole in the ground with much rubble strewn about the lot. There is still no clue as to whether or not they are rebuilding another McDonald’s or something else.
YUM! Never had a pizza from Scarpas that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. My favorite menu items are the Eggplant Parmesan Pizza and the Torta Di Mele dessert is to die for.
I noticed when I was looking at Casa Taco’s menu that they have some vegetarian options. Looking forward to trying it sometime soon.
Every other establishment that has occupied this space has gone out of business or moved pretty quick. I hope that Casa Taco has better luck.
This bumper sticker speaks for itself.
When I saw this McDonald’s in ruins today I was shocked. I was just by there a few days ago and it was business as usual. I don’t know if they relocated or if they went out of business.
I wonder if this McDonald’s is a victim of people wanting to eat a healthier diet?
Valentine’s Day is just shy of a month away. I found this kiosk (that’s what Whole Foods calls them) in Whole Foods and I wonder how long it’s been there. I guess they put it up right after they take the Christmas stuff down. One holiday just rolls into another.
I can’t remember where I took this photo. I’m thinking it was at Old Town Pizza in Old Town.
When I was a kid if I dare uttered the words, “I’m tired” … my Grandfather would tell me I was too young to be tired and that I would have time to sleep when I was dead.
