I'm a new New Mexican


Changed my residency. Evidently they gave me an Elvis commemorative plate.


  1. Many decades ago, I lived next to an old ramshackle building divided into a few apartments. A grad student lived in the apartment next to my house and drove an old Chevy. In the studio at the other end lived an ancient, wizened Romanian guy. She would often come out and find him staring at her license plate. Finally she asked him why. He pointed to the plate ANG200 and he said "Never have no trouble with that car; it's got 200 angels lookin' over it".

    1. ¿Por que? Porque. (I love how Spanish for "Why" and "Because" are essentially the same word. It's as if a parent got tired of answering a child's questions.) My AZ license and registration were about due, I had been called to jury duty in Phoenix (which I got out of for being too old), and AZ politics are increasingly insane. I've been at Lou's since March and will be here for who-knows-how-long, and I like changing things up now and then.

  3. Any flooding issues in your neck of the woods?
