Here are the queens. The new queen for this year is Mary Gomez in the sunglasses. She was a classmate of ours in high school. Ouch! Remember this is "Old Timers".
Roger (Gene's brother) ran into Earl Gleason, cowboy song writer and singer. He had met him once before. He had the number one cowboy song this year, "Springerville". It is about the cattle drive from Springerville to Magdalena, 117 miles. They drove the cattle on a driveway for many days. The cattle grazed and were sometimes fatter when they got to the railroad and trucks than they were before they started.
Here is a snapshot of the tourists trying to get through after the parade and you can see Roger and Earl Gleason on the left.
The painting, Adobe Memories, sold to a very nice collector. Thank you, Lynda! We also sold some of the items from my cafepress.com store. The tiles and tile boxes are just beautiful.
