  • Surprises come in different ways, I’ve learned. I sometimes remember to watch Antiques Roadshow on Channel  5. About the time I start to think that old piece of junk hiding on the shelf is just that: junk, I see something very similar appraised on that show, and it is usually worth a lot of money.

    SATURDAY SÁBADO

  • Earlier this month, the Mora Independent Schools celebrated Dia de la Cultura with a wonderful program presented by the kindergarten through the middle school classes.
    There was a large crowd filling the bleachers in the gym. Chairs were set up on both sides of the floor to accommodate all of the audience. The gym was tastefully decorated with the Hispanic theme.

    Behind the performers were black curtains to make a “back stage.” On the curtains were hung sarapes, sombreros, guitars and other mementos of the Hispanic culture.

  • I think spring in finally here. It is a beautiful May morning and I have just fed some hungry critters. One of our cows gives little milk, so she and her kid are in the corral for a spell, until the baby’s bottle is no longer needed to supplement.

    The three old horses need extra hay as well. Their teeth aren’t good, they are “stove up” as old timers would say, and they appreciate any and all handouts now.
