Train Keeps A Rollin' (but with a much needed correction)

August 23, 2015
   Tony Del Rosso emailed me Monday and said did I know there was an extra piece of masking on the final wall mural of my Choo Choo scratchboard, and I said, yes, I did know, but never mentioned it because it was still an honor to have one of my pieces featured so prominently on a wall at the brand new Scottsdale Museum of the West. Four days later, it was fixed. Amazing. Now when you see it, that black, semi-triangle just below the headlamp, and directly above Tony's right shoulder, is gone.

   Stayed in last night and had homemade tacos, or, as they are called at our adobe:

Tacos de Bell

Filing some of my photos from my road trip earlier this month to New Mexico and Colorado. This is a cabin, at the entrance to Georgia O'Keeffe's Ghost Ranch, in northwest New Mexico:

O'Keeffe Cabin with Pedernal Peak in the distance,
which is where Ms. O'Keeffe requested to have her ashes scattered.

The peak is featured in many O'Keeffe painting like this one:
