I have just returned from the Orme School’s annual “Vaquero Ride” near the Verde Rim in Arizona. Singing and playing the guitar around the campfire was the highlight. This included, as always, a number of Jack Huyler’s timeless songs, as well as a few in German with a member of a Blue Man Group from Germany.
Susan and I harvest our peach and plum trees for jam, and we keep our brains churning interviewing people and transcribing oral histories for the Orme School archives. We also continue to find materials for Thacher from the Farrand family. (Anyone interested in a 1929 wool letterman’s sweater — with only a few holes?)
