In front of Sun Gallery, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico My last blog post was in August, when I had just returned from a four-month West Coast solo RV trip. I commented at the end that I was going to return to my routine,...

a Koan Brothers film.* [*"I almost never know what she's talking about."] I've been doing most of my traveling in my head lately, and getting great mileage. I've been in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico since Christmas Day, when I hurtled down off the mountain just ahead of the big storm.

If Bugs had traveled earlier this week, he could ONLY have turned left at Albuquerque. I-40 east was closed altogether, so my choices were easier than Bugs'. I'm petsitting here in New Mexico's largest city; three dogs, two cats, and unnumbered finches are sharing their house with me.

My five weeks in Truth or Consequences was satisfying, as it usually is. I lived happily in three homes this time, and found a near-perfect balance between solitude and pleasant company. Betty says T or C is my second home, and I suppose that feels true.

I spent a lovely and peaceful 18 days on the Rio Grande, enjoying the company of a certain gray cat. While I was there, I was able to do some holiday decorating; I haven't done that for a few years. Immediately after that, I moved myself to a cozy house with two kitties.

With weather across the Southwest like it is, it's hard for me to get enthused about camping. I'm tucked inside in T or C, and glad of it. 
Yes, it's that time of year; time to migrate south from the biting cold of the Bay Area. We have spent the most marvelous of times while here, and are now completing the circle of family visits. In Loomis at Stevi and Gary'...

Katzenbaum: Christmas and catsitting in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
Hello, Kittens - I've missed you! I couldn't write because I've been so very not-busy. I spent a lovely and peaceful 18 days on the Rio Grande, enjoying the company of a certain gray cat. While I was there, I was able to do some holiday decorating; I haven'...

Story
Tagline
Trying on one place after another in my Prius RV.
Introduction
I live out of my 2004 Toyota Prius, "Spud." I've been living in a Fleetwood Bounder for two years, boondocking in Arizona and California with a partner. Now I'm solo. And preparing to explore New Mexico and beyond in my Prius "RV."

We came through town in an RV and inquired about a used washer that we hoped would fit. We took measurements, but the height was within a centimeter or two, and we weren't sure it would work. We asked if we could try it in the RV (parked on the street a block away), and the owner said "no." This isn't a problem; business people can't always accommodate their potential customers. He was worried about scratches and dents ( the unit was already scratched and dented, because it was used). However, he was very rude and abrupt about it. We're outsiders, and it's possible that Blue Streak sells so many appliances that the owner has no need for courtesy. In that case, carry on, and best to you. We'll find exactly what we need down the road, from someone who doesn't mind being pleasant.

Ditch your big-box experience for Black Cat. Reasonably-priced used books and good selection. Good coffee with prices to shame Starbucks, and half a dozen charming places to sit and enjoy it. You won't feel awkward spending a couple of hours, because no one seems to mind. Rhonda will gladly help you or chat if you'd like, and she'll leave you to your thoughts otherwise.

Surly Resentful manager is surly and resentful. He will thank you not to trouble him with your electrical problems! Rudest counter help ever - he needs to stay in his office and pretend not to be at home if he doesn't have employee coverage. Finding no one around would have left a better impression than talking to this guy. I was referred by my mechanic, and then this guy bad-mouthed the referee. Said my mechanic didn't want to be bothered, so he fobs these jobs off on CAE. He didn't know what my job was.

We've been here many times. Chris works hard to explain what's going on with your vehicle, and this is not a clip joint. He is happy to work with you to reduce costs on the repair (you find the part, for example), and we have always felt satisfied. So much better than a dealership. We were remarking today that their hours fill a niche for people who need to get their car in early so they can get to work. They open at 5:30 AM and hold "waiting" slots for people who will stay with their vehicle.
