Bad Boys, Bad Boys, What you going when the cops come for you?

So, lots of stuff dealing with cops today, and I'm very happy to say that none of it has to due with me for once.

In Corrales (The village I grew up in) we have a real problem with people passing cars on the right (should read as shoulder) when cars are waiting to turn left onto a road from Corrales Road. So, my dad and I were coming back from getting parts for my car. When we got to our road my dad waited to turn, because a cop was coming, and he did not want to cut off one of our cops. So then all of a sudden, this big red truck goes around us on the right. The on coming cop stops, turns on his lights, waits for the truck to pass, and pulls a u turn to nail him. My dad and I laughed our asses off the whole time the cop was pulling the u turn and like the whole time we were driving down the road.

Why you ask were we laughing so hard at this, well about a year or so ago, they raised the fines from something low for passing on the right to a 300 dollar fine. Also, a word to the wise for anyone traving in Corrales, never ever speed, or for that matter do anything wrong when driving. Our (in Corrales) fees I would say are some of the highest, if not the highest in the state. So, ya, I never ever speed anywhere in the village, and more then likely will do under the speed limit.

So, also, I have seen more cops out on the road this weekend then I have seen in a long time, and its a good thing. Granted, I know is cus 9/10th of the USA are on Holiday, but still. I think we should have this type of police presence all the time.

You also know that the radio station you listen to is doing a 80's marathon when the list of songs they have played is this:
      * Dead or Alive - You Spin Me 'Round
      * Men at work - Down Under
      * The Cure - Love Song
      * Bruce Hornsby & The Range - The Way It Is
      * Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf
      * After the fire - Der Kommissar
      * Tom Petty - Running' Down A Dream
      * Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning
      * Eurythmics - Would I Lie to You?
      * Pet Shop Boys - West End Girls

That and when their little promo / lead-in thing is: More 80's then you can shake your High Hair and Parachute Pants at your Rubix Cubes. The Tainted 80's all weekend long on 1003 The Peak.

LOL I love 100.3 KPEK - The Peak

Well, I really should goto bed at some point.
Peace,
Kevin

Viva Las Vegas, well not really...

So, tonight my parents, grandma, and I went to "Viva Las Vegas" presented by NM Symphony Orchestra at the Sandia Casino Amphitheater. It was great. Not only was it the Symphony band, but they also had a great singer by the name of Michael Andrew, and this guy can sing. They did songs by Frank Sanatra, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, & others. It was great. But what made it even better, at the end of the show, way after the sun had set, they had fireworks set to the music. The first song they did with the fireworks was New York, New York by Frank Sanatra. Michael sang on that song, and it was great. They then did 3 other songs all to fireworks, and it was amazaing to be that close to the music and the fireworks. So, all in all, it was a great way to spend a Sunday evening with Family.

Monday, I'm heading up to Santa Fe with my parents & grandma, and we are going to get some lunch, go fart around, and then to see my grandpa's grave & a close friend who died this year's grave. Both are at the National Centeray. I do think this trip is going to be a little harder for me then normal, as this will be the first time I have been up to visit Barabra's grave since her death in Feb of this year. It's only been 3.5 months since she died, and well, I'm kinda not sure how to handle my self tomaro. I mean, it's not like I have not been to peoples graves before, but she was a really close friend. She was the type of person who knew how to make you laff, knew when you needed a good hit upside the head if you were out of line, and she just new how to have fun, even at 60 + years. All I can say is I hope I have as much fun with life as she did. She lived life, had fun doing it, and never looked back.

Well, I'm off to bed or something else, cus well, my butt is woped.

Peace,
Kevin
