As a woman of a ‘certain age’ I often reflect back on my life and try to remember those sweet details of a wonderful childhood. Friends, pets and secret notes are all…Continue
It's over. All done. Black Friday came and went. I survived. Did I shop on Black Friday? Yes...but only to go to Clark's Pet Supply, a locally owned business, because my mom was out of cat food.

I credit two men for my love of Lobo basketball. The first is my father. He loved sports. He was a basketball player in high school at Menaul School and when he went to UNM he became a Lobo fan. He used to go to the basketball games in Carlisle gym. …Continue
