Yes, Ann, Berkeley was a bit more mature than the typical hippie ghetto -- although Telegraph had its hippie ghetto flashbacks. What I loved most about Berkeley during the early 70s was the music. Live music was everywhere, and it was all great. It was in the clubs, the coffeee houses, the bars, the theaters, even the parks.

Wow, Rob, then you know what I mean. You must have seen a lot in Berkeley, too. It was still interesting in the 70s, after the Haight had imploded.

Those were amazing times, Ann. I lived in Berkeley in the early1970s before I moved to New Mexico.

I think I was mostly lucky because of who I hung out with. And yes, I was in San Francisco in the mid and late 60s as a teenager. Those were amazing times.

You were hitting all of the hip places in the 70s. A wild guess -- you were in San Francisco in the late 60s.

That sounds like what happened in Aspen, CO, also. I was there in the 70s, too, just as it was changing and not for the better.

New Mexico was pretty wonderful in the 70s. That's when I arrived. Now you have to go farther and farther out of Albuquerque to find New Mexico.

Rob, my apologies--I thought you were in Arizona for some reason, a very different environment. I used to hang out in NM  in the 70s.

Ann, we're high desert here in New Mexico, so the heat isn't extreme. We're a mile up. Plus, it's dry, so if you get into the shade the heat's gone. There's no moisture to hold the heat.

Well, I guess that's one big plus for having to live in extreme heat, Rob. Although it's also true that cars don't rust as fast in California as they do on the east coast.
