  • The road map of New Mexico in 1931

    Well, what do you know? I have a granddaughter who likes old things and family history. Yes, Jennifer flew in (she’s the helicopter pilot in this family) and joined our family for my 80th birthday party recently. The helicopter stayed in Albuquerque and she came to the ranch with her parents from Ruidoso.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: October: The ‘fall behind’ month

    October seems to be my “fall behind” month, an not just because it is fall. My house is suffering through an invasion once again. Yes, it is a good invasion however.

    My cousin Yolanda spent several days here with me last month, and I welcomed her and her knowledge and interest in anything that grows, blooms or is green.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Doctor father wasn’t a big fan of fruitcake

    Like it or not, Art Trujillo — it is that time of year! Yes! It is time for all good cooks to make fruitcake. Of course they have to be made in October to be ready ripe, juicy-fruity (with a little help from some rum or brandy) for Christmas gift giving.

    I will admit this amazing event almost got past me.
