Cow and dog will be at yard sale
The green chile roaster is spinning at Santa Fe’s DeVargas Center, the Whitehawk jewelry shows are on, and a bear was just relocated from South Capitol. August is the height of the Santa Fe season, the momentum mounting for Indian Market on August 20th. Creative types will want to consider entering the Tony Hillerman/New Mexico Magazine Mystery Short Story Contest (www.wordharvest.com). The deadline is August 15 and the prize is $1,000. Yes it would be nice to have more time, but consider that the year Craig Johnson won, he wrote his story in a single day!
Want to spiff up your wardrobe this weekend? The Fifth Annual Designers Estate Sale is at 328 Delgado between Canyon Road and Acequia Madre on Saturday morning, August 13th—look for the cow! Expect Southwest jewelry, shoes from Manolos to Donald Pliner and Bruno Magli, rhinestoned denim jackets, even new stuff. Canyon Road is Santa Fe’s quintessential art lane—it’s where Tommy Macaione used to paint and the ‘hood where Los Cinco Pintores settled.
Above: My mustang Ryo in Tesuque, NM. Our barn owner in Malibu described him as Ghandi-esque because Ryo didn't fight for the best feed bin like the other horses. When Ryo died in Tesuque, I turned on my car radio to hear John Lennon singing "Imagine"... that was Ryo "living life in peace."
