My first outing of 2009 turned out to be the Chili Cookoff
This is the third year of this event. The first year was held in a teeny, tiny dirt parking lot. This year there were 55 cookoff booths!
And, judging by the charros there and the amount of people sampling chili at each booth this was a huge success. It was the perfect
place for me to go today to let everyone know, all at once, that I'm home and alive. Above is my friend Deborah who is a beautiful
horse woman and delightful friend. And the photo below is me with one of the few Americans who is allowed to be a charro. It is a very exclusive thing to be a charro in Mexico..
And, one more fun photo of me with two charros. Glad I got out and saw everyone! It was a beautiful day - in the mid 70's.
