On Tax Day, Auditors and Cow Manure

Posted by admin on April 20, 2012 in Musings |

Tuesday last was tax day and as I usually do around April 17, I ponder taxes, money, accountants.

Puszta

Posted by admin on January 28, 2011 in Uncategorized |

South of Aguila we rode out horseback in the evening sweetness of early fall. The mountains north of the ranch jutted up like busted incisors.
