|Friends of the Orphan Signs thanks Matthew Terry of Nob Hill Development Association, who worked with us to create a permanent easement that grants this sign to the city of Albuquerque as a site for public art.|

In March of 2011, one side of our sign was blown off during a night of fierce desert spring winds. There must have been a swirling explosion of letters, I found an H a block away.
The new sign face doesn't fit exactly, and is somewhat bowed out, I got a submission not long after--- "he's fat, he's poofy, he's choska"--maybe this person was referring to the sign.
They could have been referring to their cat- this is Larry and Johnnie and their mouser, Princess.
