  • 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.”

  • 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.
