    Jack, so cool to see that you are continuing to write. Oh how I wish Jimmy were here to read your book! But I can, and will. Happy holidays to you and Brenda. I still hold out hope that someday you’ll make the not-so-long trek to Kanab where I can show you plenty more evidence of Indigenous life right here where I live.

    • Hi, Caralee! Thank you. I wish Jimmy were here, too. I think of him every day, and I think of your marriage to him. Please don’t give up on me coming to Kanab. I have looked at the map from Taos to Kanab, and it’s closer than I thought. Have a great holiday period and stay warm. It’s raining here now and will turn to snow later today.

    Sounds good! It rained all day yesterday and this morning. But I have vowed to never again complain about any kind of precip given the drought we are in.

  4. Hi Jack, it’s good to see your name pop up in my email…congratulations! I miss our old blogging days.

    • Oh, gosh, so do I, Debra. I miss the intimacy of our blogging posts, the day-to-day posting, and the depth of our writing. You and I spent time making a post with photographs and commentary that doesn’t seem to cut it on FB, Twitter, Instagram. You and I and our blogging friends composed some good stuff! Thank you for the congrats. I wrote a lot about nature and humans in it within a mystery. Let’s stay in touch…life is short.

      • You summed it up perfectly Jack…I dislike social media very much for so many reasons, but blogging is the exception. I think of taking it up again often, got a million ideas!
