  • Palabras Pinturescas: Abundant snowfall blesses Mora area

    Oh no! I’m back  — full of enthusiasm to write and record my take and memory of things, places, and events in our beautiful and fun area. A misstep back in November put me in the hospital (Alta Vista) and a great rehab center for a few days. I was able to come home (my house has handicap access, fortunately) and twice-weekly physically therapy with experts in the field have me almost back to normal once again. Thank you all for such wonderful care!

  • Palabras Pinturescas: Unseasonably warm temps create longing for moisture

    I will admit I am one of those news hounds who doesn’t always get the lesser sections of our newspapers. My two papers, the Optic and the Albuquerque Journal come to our ranch mailbox and I sometimes get the Saturday, Sunday and Monday Journal on Monday. I will admit I don’t always get all of the various sections of those papers read.

    However, the Nov. 12 (Saturday) Journal tucked in an article that caught my eye (no surprise there) because I live in the middle of a heavily forested mountain here at Gascon.
