Love a lot of these sounds too! Although since there's a train that goes hourly sometimes sooner right near my house...the steam loco might not do it for me so much. '-)

Never heard a muezzin. I'm assuming its a bird.


PS, I joined the TT pahty

K t cat, purring is a good one!

Rae, the muezzin is a rather unpopular bird at the moment *gg*. He's a man who calls the moslems to prayer from atop a minoret. It's a haunting, beautiful song--esp. at sunrise in an ancient city.

I'm in New Mexico at the moment and it seems that everywhere I go, there's DOVES cooing like crazy.

At first I hated it...


Pretty soothing actually.

Uh oh, Unk. Don't let my sister, Fabric Dame know you're in NM. She might get jealous. She's stuck in Kansas right now and, well, you know. There's no place like home.

I spent every summer of my young life in Clovis. Have you been to that Mecca of the west yet? (actually, I *heart* Clovis)

I did check Clovis out... So far I've been here for almost a month and I've been just about everywhere.

Even the Gila Wilderness... Saw wolf prints but no wolf.

Awesome country.

You won't get an argument here. My grandparents settled the New Mexico Territory in 1909, my grandfather off a mule train from Oklahoma, and my grandmother living in sod bunkers with her fam.

My mother grew up there and my grandparents became respected business-owners in Clovis. They lived on Mitchell Street--right in town--and my sister and I spent our summers scrounging the alleys for scraps of carpet and weird reptiles. At that time, the '60s, mainstream US culture still didn't realize NM was even a state. Everyone thought we summered in Mexico.

It's a fabulous State. I love it. Where are you based, ABQ? Santa Fe? Clines Corners? LOL.
