  • May is kicked off with Mother’s Day. Graduations are just around this big day.

    I feel my mother’s presence all around me, often, and I suspect she continues to keep a watchful eye on this old ranch.

    Mother would be proud of her five grandkids. They have inherited her spunk and spirit genes, as did sweet brother Bill and I.

    Our mother was very different, very British, very strict. Bill and I finally figured that out, but not before we tried to get away with all sorts of things.

  • The Mora Health Fair was held last Thursday in the Mora High School gym. There were many tables set up to let the public be aware of the many areas of health care that are available to them. Each table had an abundance of literature and “goodies” that included pens, pencils, key chains, bags, note pads and even fly swatters and more. They had their logo or theme on them as part of marketing their health care services.

    There were a couple of areas set up so that the people could get their vital signs taken. Advice was given where it was needed.

  • Probably one of the most exciting events in a girl’s life is the day she gets her own horse. I’ve been there and done that, more than once. The lessons learned by both horse and rider will last a lifetime, and now a recent story in the Albuquerque Journal brought back another set of horse memories for me.
