  • Palabras Pintorescas: Oh, those Christmas photo cards

    Time flies when one has fun. Suddenly I look at the calendar, (it is almost December as I write this) and look outside (there are 14 inches of new snow on the ground) and I realize it is about time to search out Christmas cards.

    I might be able to dig out a Christmas card from very long ago if I work at sorting the boxes of photographs I’ve already written about. Our parents fell for someone’s line about how wonderful photograph Christmas cards were when Sweet Brother Bill and I were just “wee tots,” as my grandparents would say.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: What’s old is new again

    What is old is new again. So goes the saying rattling around in my brain. I tend to get so interested in local history that I find I forget what I researched and read just a few years ago.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Did a fruitcake collide with a satellite?

    My days spent way out in our mountains are never the same. One thing leads to another, and the story pops into my head. I discovered the so necessary candied fruits for fruitcakes are now for sale in our grocery stores. No, I don’t make fruitcakes any more, but I do enjoy eating same. Then I read in the newspaper that a Russian satellite is breaking apart and will soon drop on our good earth, in pieces, no less. Apparently it did no damage when it landed.
