A Happy Couple-ABC WEDNESDAY "H'


Seated next to me in a restaurant recently while I was having breakfast, Margaret, Dan, and I engaged in some friendly conversation.  I learned that this happy couple are native New Mexicans.  Margaret has lived her entire life on the same street in Santa Fe (how common is that ?!), and Dan originally from Taos now is a permanent resident here. They have three grown children, two girls and one boy,  and after a lifetime of working are now retired.  Dan worked for several decades in the lab at Los Alamos and Margaret was employed by US West Telephone Company. After she retired from the telephone company,  Margaret worked in several different places, one of which is The Camera Shop on San Francisco Street where I frequently visit for photographic supplies and advice from the owner Peter and Randy, who appeared on this blog during some of my previous visits in Santa Fe.  Wonder how many degrees of separation this is?! (And, for those of you who sometimes ask, yes, I had prints made for them since Margaret told me that they don't have a computer.  Hope they like the photos!)

  1. and I bet they were delighted with the photo. Not sure what is more surprising...living on the same street your whole life..or not having a computer...both are equally foreign to me.
    Love your profiles.

  2. I bet they will like them Kate. I can't imagine not having a computer but, I met a few native Americans Sunday who live in remote reservation areas where there is not internet service and cell phone service is very spotty.

  4. I agree with Janey. I can't imagine not having a computer. And living on the same street your whole life? Nothing wrong with that, but it's so uncommon!

  5. Isn't that nice that you met a nice couple - hope they like the photos. And I, too, can't imagine not having a computer. My good laptop isn't working right now, but I do have another smaller one with less capabilities so I can at least access Facebook, ABCW, email, etc. But it doesn't have photoshop on it, which is something I use a lot.

    That's quite a feat to live in the same house for so many years.

  13. It is rare to live on the same street your whole life!!! How wonderful that you all connected. I really loved living in New Mexico when my hubby was in the Air Force.
