  • Palabras Pintorescas: Oh, how the times have changed

    My collection of old family files is fascinating and now I realize how much I regret not taking a history class or two from Dr. Lynn Perrigo at Highlands so long ago. I’d advise any student in school now to make time, room, for at least an overview class on area history. You will never regret it!

    I just read a March 1937 copy of the State of New Mexico Department of Game and Fish brochure.

  • Palabras Pintorescas: Walking down memory lane

    I continue to enjoy the walk down memory lane with Joseph Baca and jesus Lopez on KFUN on Monday. One thing leads to another with these talk shows, and recently they listed the many “Mom and Pop” grocery stores we used to have there. Yes, that was the term used to describe them at the time.
