Rocks and Balloons

“Only in Albuquerque,” Lissa said.

The local outlet for Lafarge, the international rock, concrete and aggregate vendor, had an open house this afternoon. It was a delight. They were barbecueing hamburgers and hot dogs, and had some guy making balloon animals for the kids. One of the local radio stations was doing remotes. From a rock and gravel yard. We wandered the yard, checking out the crushed stone for L’s latest garden project, and L got a free soda. Such a deal! And they’ll likely have sold us some rock, though that would have happened anyway. We like their rock.
