Summer Treat

Looking through my old photos makes me long to be back in Mexico. Don’t get me wrong, things weren’t always fun and easy, but Bela and I had many good times. Bela loved getting a “raspadita” every chance she got. ­čÖé Snow cones are wonderful in any language!

I bet these guys are still selling raspaditas in Seye.

Fair Week!

In addition to Ysbaela’s cookie jar, she put together two cultural exhibits. The Day of the Dead one was simple, just a few paragraphs explaining the pictures we put in the frames. The family grouping had a lot more. Her explanation included mention of the Melungeons and the Cherokee ancestry we have. I sincerely hope she places high in her categories. I also hope her cookie jar sells for a respectable amount. It’s a minion, after all. ­čÖé
