It Was 20 Years Ago Today

No. Sgt. Pepper didn't tell the band to play. I believe it was on this date in 1999 that I rolled into ABQ to begin my life here. Any place would have been an improvement over Yuma. I lived in an apartment temporarily while I looked for a house. My agent did a great job in sorting through the listings to find the perfect house which was to become Fur Central. I'm almost to the point where this will become the place where I have lived the longest. I fully left Illinois behind when I was 25, so it's getting close. Man! All of the changes I have witnessed over this time. And the west side just keeps expanding and growing. And my house is slowly becoming 100% mine with all of the remodels I have done over the years. I'm also still waiting for ABQ to be "discovered" as a cheaper alternative to the Bay Area, Seattle, or Austin as a hip place to live. Then again, I think we already have our own "scene" which makes the place affordable and fun. Kitty and I have been talking about good places to retire. I usually end up going full circle and ending up here. Let's see what the next 20 years brings.
