  • Palabras Pintorescas - It’s time to dust off those old ice skates

    It might be cold and snowy (in very late February) as I write this, but the world continues to turn same as ever, and I am delighted to have some really good news in the mix of this month.

    Dust off the ice skates, folks! Councilman Joey Herrera has a working plan, a working group of area residents who are moving full steam ahead to refurbish the long abandoned skating pond at Montezuma once again. Herrera’s enthusiasm is contagious and I had a fun visit with him and Jesus Lopez on “Over the Back Fence” radio program on KFUN recently.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Doc’s sour medical ‘cure’

    In the span of the week I get a call from an acquaintance from long ago, and a call from my daughter. Their requests were similar. They wanted some recipes of different kinds,  recipes that probably  aren’t in print or on the internet now.

    Sherry wants some old recipes that her grandmother had written down in a three-ring binder long ago. She plans to develop a family-style cookbook for my granddaughter who will soon be a newlywed.

    He was accompanied by his family and many relatives. They came from Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Bernalillo, Albuquerque and Las Vegas. There were 54 adults and quite a few children.

    The party was enjoyed by everyone.  

    Pacheco served in the United States Air Force for 20 years and has been retired for 33 years. His service took him to the wars in Vietnam and Korea besides the time he spent in the United States and elsewhere.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Valmora delegation active during reunion

    A year ago this picture would have been just another photograph I’d glance at as I sorted through a stack of very old black and white photos. It is actually printed on a postcard, and the printed wording on the front of it says: “Valmora Delegation, Cowboy’s Reunion, Las Vegas, N Mex.” “Malaney photo” is written on the lower corner.
