Sometimes Grandmothers can take all the joy out of things... How else do you get rid of cockroaches on the wall?
haha! that's where my Dad was born! TucumcarI! and my Grandfather did all of the New Mexico stretch. he and my Grandmother met as she would drive Mule Teams in the summer when she wasn't in college, her father had the contract to run all of the mule teams
