Albuquerque COMICCON 2017

Yay, we are on the map now. Well for comic collectors, fans of superheroes, and just general fun stuff. As we entered we were greeted by several storm troopers but since we meant no harm they seemed very friendly and posed for pictures with us. then we embarked on our journey to see all the cool stuff we came to see. Lets see about 500 vendors, 38 famous guests, and so many movie props. Not to mention all the people that came dressed in costumes of their favorite character. So many booths with comic books for purchase, awesome prints, and artists renderings to adorn your walls. All the collectible Pokemon and superhero paraphernalia that you just cant live without. I know we waited until the last day of the event to attend. there is both an advantage and disadvantage to this. So if you want the win/win situation you get the 3 day pass. Go early and get stuff before everybody else sees it. and go late and catch the markdowns from the vendors who don't want to lug all the merchandise back home. They had all figures including some lego figures $1 each. I didn't see any I was familiar with but I'm not really an expert. We did make it through the main floor and 2nd floor both sides. legs ready to fall off. wait there is more downstairs. ahhh we may have to wait until next year. Here is the official link to the page.   
 see you next year....

Groomingdale's Pet Spa New customer $5 off bath and brush or full groom.

I was going to Valley Vetco on a Wednesday, surprise they were closed but I noticed Groomingdales next door with a special for a nail trim. well my Simba was due for a nail trim so I walked over and checked them out. very personable staff. they clip the nails then file them down with a rotary tool. Its nice to have it done because I get concerned about her catching her nails on a blanket. Plus they walk lighter on their feet with a good nail trim. She prances and acts like a youngster once again. Here is my beautiful little rescue Simba.
