  • Palabras Pintorescas - Summer recipes

    If it is summertime, the living should be easy. Part of my easy living includes make-ahead dishes for lunch or supper. After so many years of three big meals a day for a crowd, a few tricks of this cooking trade have rubbed off on me.

    My summer calendar has begun to fill up. I now intend to be ahead of the game. I’ll have lunches almost completed and ready to pull out of the “ice box” as they used to be called.

  • Mora County Notebook - Youth group places at competition

    The Mora Youth Hunter Education Challenge showed a great improvement at the state meet in Raton, N.M., earlier this month.

    Last year, they placed 12th when competing against other groups in the state. Now in the 2012 meet they raised their scores to place eight. The Youth Hunter Education Challenge is an international event that is held every June at the Whittington Center near Raton every June. The event is sponsored by National Rifle Association, 4H, New Mexico Game and Fish Department, and New Mexico Shooting Sports.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Fires, fires oh my!

    The dark storm clouds grow as I write this in mid-June. Will they bring rain, or … will they just bring lightning? 2012 has been a bad year for lightning fires in New Mexico.

  • Sharing history though pictures

    We just had a fun and educational visit with some interesting folk here at the ranch. I continue to be amazed at how old ranch history just pops up, and this time, the stories were really old.

    Peter Welles called me early in the year to find out what was going on at the ranch, and could he and his wife Anita come for a visit in May … of course I said yes! His family built the third log cabin here when my grandfather started our dude ranch business.

  • Mora County Notebook - Farewell to the 2012 graduates

    The Mora High School band played the processional as the students marched in. The boys had the traditional school colors of green while the girls wore the white gowns.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - What was said in those graduation speeches?

    Unless one lives up on Hermit’s Peak as the hermit did so long ago, one can’t help but be aware that graduation time is here.

    Yes, I can say I have been there and done that a couple of times.
