All my boyhood dreams

Saw this arrive with wide-open pipes I assume can be closed. (Maybe not, though!) It’s licensed and legal, which tells you a lot about New Mexico, no?

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

    When I first moved to Albuquerque (from California) in 1976, I went to get my vehicle inspected so that I could register it in NM. The “inspection” consisted of a guy seeing a previous (1969!) CA inspection sticker on my windshield, and immediately giving me a “pass” 🙂

      Hah! Oh, I know…

      When we came here in late ’99, I took our car to be inspected and registered in NM, too. In Taos the “inspection” consisted of checking the vehicle identification number. That was it.
