I Visit A Blank Rock…

I’m currently in Albuquerque, New Mexico awaiting Mary’s arrival on Tuesday, May 1st.

Prior to my arrival about a week ago, I did my usual Internet search of places I might like to visit while in an area. I’m particularly drawn to unique places and things.

Having lived in Washington State…the location of Microsoft headquarters…and being somewhat of a computer nerd…this thing sounded like a quick and easy thing to do. On my first day in Albuquerque while driving around scoping out the city…I found myself going right by the location.

But I already knew it was gone…recently stolen! You can read all about the theft by clicking this link…

Here’s what was stolen…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view...

But I still wanted to see the location of this unique place so I stopped by 199 California Street and took this photo…

You can see where the plaque used to be. Nonetheless…it was interesting to see the place where Microsoft began.

Here’s a 1978 photo of the Microsoft staff. Would you have invested your money with this group???

The photo comes from the below link about the history of Microsoft…

As a full-time RVer I enjoy visiting historic places.
