What I'm Reading:
Down the Santa Fe Trail and into Mexico: The Diary of Susan Shelby Magoffin

House of Rain by Craig Childs. Great read for anyone interested in the ancient civilizations of the southwest.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven. (Which, by the way, is not at all about the Lone Ranger and Tonto fist fighting in heaven.. very disappointed, because that sounded like a good read...)

Sandia Man Cave - is or is not.

Posted on July 8, 2012 at 8:24am 3 Comments

Today, I will walk into an Elementary School and color in some circles in an attempt to actively participate in a right that has been hard to come by for some, if not all of us. This year is different though. This year I will be voting, not for who I think is best, or who I feel will lead better, but instead, I will be setting aside my fishing pole and pick up my wife's, casting it into the deep muddy waters of the political ocean.



Why people vote the way they do is as varied as the… Continue
