This is a typical view in the Arkansas Valley out east of Pueblo Colorado, near La Junta and Rocky Ford, and Manzanola.  We will be moving soon to our own homestead farm out here in Manzanola Co. Population of the town is about 400 people! Not sure how many critters live there yet, but we plan on increasing that population somewhat!  ;^)

Favorite songs

Anything on CHILL XM 84, Many of the old Classic songs from ANY era. Anything I can sing or dance to!  Music is a huge source of energy. So, Don’t Die With Your Music Still Inside You!  My brother and sister and I play and sing together -so, whatever we can learn is a new favorite!  Freely experimenting with life ~
