  • Palabras Pintorescas: Accidents bring back memories of train wreck

    Once in a while bad news bumps good news off the front page of the paper and the radio and television programs. Two area car wrecks come to mind when I mention this.

    I am closely related to one of our fire department first responders, and he was called out early in the morning here because of a head-on crash down our road a few miles. The injuries were severe, but the occupants survived.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Where’s a genie when I need her?

    Oh, what I’d give to find that bottle that supposedly has a genie trapped inside. I’d free her, and ask her to take me back in time. Yes, way back because there are folks I’d like to meet and things I’d like to see.

    Case in point: I found a very old newspaper clipping in an aged family book not long ago. I don’t know which newspaper printed this story but I do know it is in Wisconsin. The headline says “Brown Indian relics given to state society.”

  • Book brings back old rodeo memories

    Ranching and rodeos (they go together) are in my blood. My Oklahoma-born uncle was a bronco rider and quite a calf roper in his day. Pat Romero’s new book,  “Cowboy Reunions in Las Vegas New Mexico,” is timely and brings back so many memories for me. It has also led to some dreams, ideas about rodeos in Las Vegas.
