He She Bang (A Musical) in Madrid

This past November the Madroids (Madrid locals) performed the 30th annual He She Bang. The He She Bang originated as a benefit for a local gentleman suffering from HIV and AIDS and has continued as a charity event to support the Madrid medical and dental fund. The theme this year was the “Sordid History of Coal Gulch.” We attended the final dress rehearsal and it was hilarious. The actors portrayed

White Sands, New Mexico Tour

I just got back from a wonderful motorcycle ride to Alamogordo and White Sands National Park. First, I want to thank our fearless leaders Mary and Lisa for putting this trip together for everyone.

This week we took a drive up to Chimayo to visit the Santuario de Chimayo. What a wonderful place to visit. We took Juliet and Harlee with us and they had fun exploring the grounds.

Many of these catrinas are as tall as

Panteón Municipal “Luz Eterna”

This is our local cemetery. It’s located about 2 miles up the road from our house. Since Did de Muertos has been pretty much canceled this year due to the virus I thought I’d pay a visit to the cemetery. There are several cemeteries in town and the ones located in centro date back hundreds of years. This cemetery seems a bit newer and is really for the “common” person.
