  •  My granny was an operator (3+ / 0-)

    for AT&T in Alamogordo when that went down.  I can only imagine the kind of calls she got.  My dad grew up there though he hated it.  He did take us to White Sands in any event and I must say, it is an incredible treasure.  Thanks for reminding me about it.

    •  your treasured memories. . . (3+ / 0-)

      of your granny. I take it that was long ago and I think Alamogordo is still a sleepy time hamlet. Certainly, no industry down there except military affairs and tourism. Well, maybe cattle rustling. (Use to be case at the turn of the century and the history of that entire region makes for a great read. If I can find the book title about same, which was one of my very favorite New Mexico history books, I'll send it along to you by your profile's email. Give your connection with your granny and your experience in that neck of the sandy woods. . .I think you'll enjoy reading it. For I know, she and your dad are likely part of that narrative.) Thanks for posting your comment, emobile.
