I remember growing up in San Acacia ( population 17) in the 1970's. My parents bought 13 acres of raw land to begin my dads dream... breeding racing quarter horses. I was in High School. I met one of the finest gentleman I have ever met in my life. "Corky" as we called him, gave me my first job. Irrigating fields, baling hay, creating hay cubes and bagging them, welding fences, and other assorted ranch hand jobs. The best thing he did for me one day was "Chew my ass out" when I stuck a $100,000 machine in the mud when he told me not too go in a specific area of wetness and I did it anyway. 16 and stupid I guess. He was very firm but very fair. He helped me out of the mud and still trusted me to continue to work on that machine. I still carry within me as a teacher, firm but fair. Thanks Corky,

We just traveled thru NM on I-40. Two years ago we went on I-25 across the state. I always notice the alfalfa fields. I am a retired farmer!

One day I was loading groceries into my vehicle in Socorro, when a guy walked by and said that my son (at the time 2 years old) could use a new cap, and asked me if he could give him one. I said sure, and he gave us a cap that said "Got Hay" with a cow on it. This cap is now been passed on to my youngest son (turning 2 in December) and this cap is the only thing he will wear on his head. WE have had many nights and mornings spent looking for this specific cap, which luckily has always turned up, still in once piece, it might be found in the barn, the truck, the dog house, the sand box, or in bed with him. I just wanted to thank you for the kind jester that day, and for the cap that really has been worn daily and appreciated by our family!
