The Muleshoe Ladies Golf Association

Sam Damron Had a Drugstore

One reason I will always remember Sam Damron is because he is the only other person in my life to ever call me “Alice Blue Gown,” inspired by the old song, I guess. The other person was my daddy. And Sam probably doesn’t even remember that, but when we were new to...

Tumbleweeds from Hell

If Ben Franklin once said that guests and fish begin to smell after three days, I think he would say our tumbleweeds are smelling like beached whales. The wind blew with a vengeance from the southeast all day Thursday, April 20th, wreaking havoc in our pasture and on...
