Here is the "gecco house" I told you about...The sun was shining down on it...so the pic is a bit filtered, but it was the best we could do on limited time. The larger picture looks much better...but it's this giant lizard sculpted directly onto this home. The resident is the owner of one of the more popular restaurants in town "Little Anita's".
This was the "sign" at the same house with the lizard on it.
To the right is the Sandia Casino (posterized...can you tell what my favorite effect is...but wait there's more) situated on the northside of Albuquerque. My "lucky" husband won $150 or so...on a nickel machine! He told me he's lucky because he got me! He is SUCH a keeper!
This is the picture of ME at the first statue in the statue garden...
Look how tiny I am...teehee...this was no easy feat climbing up a railing and I got flash backs of gym class on the balance beam...only that was only 6 inches off the ground and this was 2-4 feet off the ground!
The picture to the right is my husband in the 2nd statue of Rings that I asked him in my "loving wife voice" to jump up there and stick his head through the top...and this is actually one of his first genuine smiles and I think his inner child started coming out in preparation for the wedding later that day...
I like to call this one of me and my little friends to the left "Just the three of us"
The picture to the lower-right I call "Paul and Legs!
This one to the left is "Me and the Bears". Original titles huh? Okay let's call this one to the left "GRRRRRRRRR" much better!
I love this picture of Paul and his "buddy". I'm calling it "Rock Solid Friends!"...it's better than "Stony Silence" don't you think?
This was our first home together. This is actually owned by Paul's mom and it was a home given to her and Paul's dad as a wedding gift. Man wedding gifts have sure de-evolved haven't they! I asked Paul if it was weird sleeping in his parents old room...of course he said "No." No explanation or interjection, just "no!" That is just the way he works.
This lovely couple (postarized of course) looks like they're at a wedding or some other festive event...no it's a wedding! Look how happy they are in red and pink!
This was at the entryway to the Cadillac Ranch. It was at the base, near the ground and I happened to notice it as I looked down while walking to look for ticks and/or scorpions...it is Texas after all! Anyway, as usual, God blessed me with this reminder that Jesus IS forever!
This picture to the right is my darling husband with paint in hand...painting a future gallery piece, no doubt! MOMA, here we come....
I realize it looks like I know how to graffiti, but I'm telling you emphatically I have never done this before....and that is what I'll tell the judge if I should be held for questioning for any personalized graffiti they may find!
To the right over there...is the humble (and when I say humble...I MEAN humble) welcome to Oklahoma sign at that rest stop I spoke of.
This really is the end...seriously...on to much more important world matters! It's been fun! and in the words of Lauren....
