An Old Friend in Albuquerque


My friend Ned Cherry, who I hadn’t seen in over 30 years, standing by his man cave in the backyard of the adobe home in Albuquerque, NM, in which he and his wife Concepción live. Ned and I have known each other for almost 70 years.

  1. Every man needs a cave. With a wood burning stove. And a cat/dog. Small fridge. Work bench with tools from multiple generations of ancestors. Man, don’t get me started.
