Remember the Good, the Bad, the Ugly?

I first saw the movie while attending NMSU in Las Cruces. The Rio Grande runs through the town, and as college students are wont to do, we went parking and partying on the river. Imagine my surprise when the hanging tree from the movie was one of our favorite parking/partying spots! So I feel a special connection to the movie and was fascinated by this rendition of the iconic theme song!

Quote of the day...

Nine times out of ten, in the arts as in life, there is actually no truth to be discovered; there is only error to be exposed.

Henry Louis Mencken, 1880 - 1956
Home from vacation and as always it is good to be home. I enjoyed my trip and visits with family and dear friends...
My son and I went to the Dallas World Aquarium, and if you are in the DFW area, you must really see it. And if you haven't seen it lately, they have added a new wing...

I am on VACATION!!!

And I REAALLLLLY needed it. I came down to my sister's house yesterday to celebrate my Mother's 87th birthday.
Since it is apple season in southern New Mexico and my nephew has LOTs of apple trees, we about a half-bushel of apples. We used my sister's apple peeler/corer and worked through them in less than an hour- much shorter than peeling, coring etc. by hand. It is a very ingenious, low tech machine and works like a charm. And it taught my nieces that apple juice comes from places other than a juice box! They were organic, so there was some critters to deal with but that is to be expected.
This afternoon we will have apple treats!
