Thank God For Nuevo Mexico

[Editor's note: This week's Eyedropper will be interrupted for a brief letter to God.]

Dear God, I have been very blessed this week and have many things for which to be thankful.

I'm thankful for Aryana Potter and that she was intrepid enough to dare take this photo at the lowrider car show this month at the Santa Fe Lowe's.

I'm thankful that when Nuevo Mexico caught Potter taking her photo, Nuevo Mexico left Potter's camera and, more importantly, this image intact.

I'm thankful for lowriders, the people who ride around in them and the people who like to look at lowriders and the people who ride around in them.

I'm thankful for Spanish translations of anything.

I'm thankful for tattoos, designer purses and cell phones with cameras.

I'm thankful for short shorts, especially blue ones.

I'm thankful that when I wanted to get "Thug Life" written in the very same spot, my mom hit me.

Yours Truly,
