Patrick: Saludos from one of the Albuquerque kids. I was there from Sept '62 to July '63, in a foster home. I remember visiting with the fellows at Villa del Cobre a few times, but I don't remember anyone's name. I'd love to find a boy we called Pachicho who went to ABQ about the same time I did and I think he was at VM. He was about 14 and a very funny guy. --How interesting that you remained in NM, the land of enchantment. I have been back three times and finally appreciated its beauty much more than when I was there when it felt like a desert to me. I remember how Santa Fe had many unpaved streets in the sixties and how dusty it was to walk around in it. But it is such a fabulous place now! Many sunny, fun days for you and your family in your retirement. Welcome to the PP Network, Yolanda
