Apple Orchard ABQ., NM

Living in the trailer in the corner of an apple orchard in NW Albuquerque. Just off the zanja. Horace rented it to us for $30/month. I believe we were there 2 months. He built his house himself out of adobe brick he made. Worked in the stock yards in the 1960s. Used to get up @ 3am, work on building the house for 90 minutes, then go to work. I liked Horace. He was a good guy. It was a quiet lane. I built an archway and a chimney while we were there for a contractor (his own house) just down the street.
