When Jacobo was a lad, he played along the Gallinas River. He and his friends caught butterflies and snakes and sold them to the Highlands Science Lab. Two cents for a butterfly and five cents for a snake. Back then, cows wandered along the river’s edge, and the boys would try to ride the cows. Of course, they fell off. Of course, they got hurt. As Jacobo related these adventures, his face lit up. It was all part of being a kid and having fun down by the riverside.
