newspaper folks – Tucumcari, New Mexico

The Tucumcari Daily News Staff

probably about 1944

Earl Grau and Richard Hindley owned the newspaper at this time (I *think*)

Again – I *think* the Tucumcari Daily News was established in 1933.

1950 - Tucumcari Rattler Basketball Squad

If you can identify any of these basketball players, give a holler!
Even if I once knew –
I no longer know.

a mountain

As a young child until my teen years, we lived in Tucumcari, New Mexico.  Every now and then I go back for the Tucumcari Reunion (and love visiting old friends and making new friends).  Haven’t been back for a reunion in awhile; it is probably time!

This area of New Mexico is mostly flat (certainly doesn’t have the mountain range that we enjoyed when we lived in Denver).

However, Tucumcari has a mountain. Yep folks –  that’s Tucumcari mountain in the background  – standing sentinel while Leroy Webb (The Last Cowboy) feeds his horses and I figure that Leroy and his friend plan to have a cup of coffee later and trade horse stories.
