  • Palabras Pintorescas: April winds nearly blew us away

    Yes, we almost blew away in April. Those bitter and ferocious winds kept a lot of us indoors. Just going out to the mailbox on our road was a challenge. That translates into doing indoor chores, and it doesn’t take much for me to get distracted.

  • Mora County Notebook - Basketball is a year-round sport for Mora

    Yes, basketball season is over as far as the high school schedule is concerned, but it is still there. They have the Amanda Serna Memorial Basketball Camp coming up during the summer months. Some of the Mora athletes are going to the big North/South competition. NBA is still showing on television. Mora students have been busy with baseball, softball and track now,  but basketball has always been and will always be the king of sports in the Mora Valley.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Has El Niño finally arrived?

    Suddenly it is spring, and as I write this, storm clouds are building on our mountain tops. Has El Niño finally arrived? Often, in years past, the heaviest, wettest (and deepest) have come in May in our mountains here.
    And back in the day, the acequias, the always-flowing ditches, were overflowing when the spring runoff started. There is almost no water in any of the ditches at the moment.

  • Palabras Pintorescas - Writer composes a dissertation upon roast pig

    My mind can wander, change the subject at the drop of a hat, as they say. One thing leads to another, and suddenly the conversation changes, reverts to yet another experience, a visit to old times once again.

    Case in point: My neighbor and I have a visit about pork, as in bacon, ham, sausage, etc. Seems as how bacon has doubled in price in just the last month. Apparently a virus is killing baby pigs by the thousands, therefore our traditional breakfast bacon will be a luxury item... not good new for a lot of us. I suspect lard will also become pricey.

  • Mora County Notebook - 102-year-old Lazaro Garcia honored

    During the lunch hour the Archuletas came to sing Las Mañanitas and some other happy songs.
