Sorry for the long break. So here we are, in the land of the burning sun and yet, after the sun slides beneath the western horizon, the moon is bright, and the evening miracle happens. The thermometer lets its breath out. We have been having an unusually windy summer. I am not complaining mind you, it moves the air. The weather pattern is setting up nicely for monsoon season and we have high hopes of seeing a raincloud in the coming weeks. All of that said, it seems that this morning was for the birds...
I spotted this guy looking comfy in the brief green of the century plant.

It's been several years since Albertson's closed and left Alamogordo with only one grocery store (two if you count WalMart). Now apparently Albertson's wants to come back and, according to the newspaper, there is controversy on how much economic aid should be given to get them to come.
I got to thinking about the past grocery stores.
I think it was on this corner that as a kid we walked to a grocery store.
