OUR PRAYERS are with our friends in Mississippi and Louisiana. I know some of our Tatters were evacuated early; but, we pray that their homes will be preserved; and, they will be able to return in a timely manner. Also, that the volunteers and emergency folks will be safe while doing their work.
A, lesser annual irritation is a typical scene in downtown (using the term loosely) Silver; the monsoon rain water flows down from surrounding mountains and washes down the streets West to East. I should mention that the fellow from California has obviously heard that Silver is Old Hippie Central as well as an up-and-coming (in their minds) Artist's center. This is why we chose to live up on the ridge instead of one of the charming Victorian or Queen Ann homes up Yankee Street and Broadway! Quizzical question , in dry weather, "Why are the curbs 3 feet high?" In New Mexico, the owners of businesses and homes pay for their own sidewalks and curbs! Installation and upkeep. Not exactly a progressive state with Governor Richardson at the helm.
