  • Palabras Pintorescas: Lots of people still have and use cedar chests

    Surprises come in all sizes here at my house. You, my readers, have really made my day, my week… I am so surprised so many of you do still have your cedar chest, and you have a story about it as well. Your in person visits, phone calls and notes prove this one column hit home with many of us. Thank you for telling me about yours too.

    A call from Santa Fe from our friend Fernando leads the list of cedar chest owners. His family still has five chests, all in use. And in 1951 he made two that are still in use with his family and will go to his granddaughters.

  • Foundation buys St. Vrain Mill

    Submitted to the Optic

    The  Saint Vrain Mill Preservation and Historical Foundation has achieved its lontime goal of purchacing the mill. Merl Witt, the foundation’s president, said the mill was purchased earlier this month from Michael and Chris Montoya of Mescalero.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Anyone still own a cedar chest?

    Catching up in person with friends from 60 plus years ago is always fun. One of my favorite high school and college friends spent several days with me here at the ranch recently. We do admit we are getting older, but we still have a lot to laugh about and to be thankful for in so many ways.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Book, ‘The Map of Heaven,’ a must-read

    My friends know how much I like to read, and they are generous — they hand me current, obviously new to me books to read. One of my favorite new ones is “The Map of Heaven” by Eben Alexander, M.D. Its subtitle is “How Science, Religion and Ordinary people are proving the Afterlife.”

    I will admit I let it sit on my coffee table for a while. I no longer am the best at reading scientific writings. However, the contents page alone caught my attention.
