Our Fundraiser for the Legal Defense Team netted $1740! YAHOOOO! Last year the foreigners trying to steal the water out on the San Augustin Plains lost their third round in trying to push their application through, and were finally "shown the door" you might say by District Judge Matt Reynolds. Then the opposition filed another appeal, and that's where it sits now - awaiting the New Mexico Court of Appeals to rule on the whole mess. Court's been delayed by the virus -
we'll keep everyone up to date as things develop.

"Smoketime for The Boss"
From No Life for a Ladyby Agnes Morley Cleaveland - Published in 1941
"'Please give us a room that is not directly over the barroom,' my mother stipulated to the hotel-keeper the night we arrived [in 1886]. 'I'm afraid those bullets will come up through the floor.' It was years afterward before Magdalena gathered herself together and made it a misdemeanor to shoot within the town limits."
