Magdalena Old Timers, Saturday, July 7, 2007

The parade was in the morning at 10:00 a.m. There are horses, stagecoach, queens, floats, and assorted cars and groups. Traffic on Highway 60 comes to a stop for a couple of hours. Poor tourists.

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".

Miss Teen Alamo

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.

Valencia County Sherrif's Posse

Holly, the Basket Artist

The show went on as scheduled, sort of. I had put in my advertising from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. and Peppers had put from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. so we were there from 12 noon to 5:00 p.m. Not a great crowd and the rains came about 2 p.m. and the outside vendors had to close shop. Not as many visitors to Magdalena as in past years.

Adobe Memories
11 x 14 Acrylics

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.

Sun Pears
Pastel, 5 x 7 inches

The door prize of the painting, Sun Pears, was won by Pat Valentine from Socorro. The painting was painted at Peppers as a demo last summer.

This is my corner in Peppers Art Gallery.

The Ladron Mountains
On Friday we took another photo of those interesting mountains. They look different every day. If you put Ladron in the search box above you will find three more photos of these rough peaks and a painting. A favorite subject in my photos.
