I’m putting together an online scrapbook.
Not being much of a “scrapbooker,” I only hazily seem to understand their purpose. Something along the lines of bringing together photos and other visuals commemorating fond memories into a single bound object.

There’s a not-so-ulterior motive in putting together such a scrapbook, namely seeking to change ABQ roadway engineering policy so that situations such as those identified below go away, over time, and NEVER happen again. More about that in coming days.
Now let’s crack open the scrapbook (I’m thinking we’ll have crocheted bicycles on the cover with little plastic diamonds in the spokes) and “fondly” think back to our times at:
