Okay guys, you can eat here all you want. But stay out of my corn or it’s fiesta time and carne asada tacos for everyone!
Regular readers know that here in Baja it is widely accepted that the raven is the harbinger of death. One day while cloistered in my study slaving over a manuscript, I heard a ringing, a gentle dinging at my study door. An idle visitor, I thought, only this and nothing more; an idle time waster I can easily ignore. But the bell never ceased it’s ringing, dinging, gentle pealing. I threw down my work and went out to see who it was insisted on breaking into my thoughts. You can imagine the shock when I found an evil raven tolling the big bronze bell on my front gate. Does it toll for me? I thought of the famous line by Donne; don’t ask, it tolls for thee. Time for a shot of Don Julio.
Signs of spring here on the ranch.
