Muleshoe Art Association

I think it was in 2014, 2013 maybe, that I joined the Muleshoe Art Association. I don’t paint, but photography is considered an art form these days, so I joined and also entered their annual spring art show. This year that show will be held the week of April 9th at...

No Golf Today!

Just the other day I showed you the golf course in all its green glory (“Golf, Anyone?” December 7, 2017). This morning when we ventured out in the 17 degree weather to walk the dogs, this is the scene that greeted us: The course’s winter wardrobe may not be as bright...
