Carol,yesterday after recieving the wonderful 2002 Mexican Heritage calendar,I was inspired to take some pictures. Seeing
Pancho Villa with his Mexican blanket draped over his shoulder,made me got get out a vintage Mexcian blanket that was given
to me from a Mexican lady many years ago who lived in Deming,New Mexico. When I would go visit my Grandmother in Deming,my
best friend,was her Granddaughter. The blanket was old when she gave it to me,the last summer I visited my Grandmother before
going off to college. Years later I still treasure it & think of her & my friend and all the fun we had. Oh My,the
Mexican food she would cook!! You will see the blanket,as I used it for display in my pictures! Last year I was so thrilled
to add a great Fiesta Mexican go-along coaster set to my collection. You can see a picture of the Mexican coasters in a wireware
frame holder in the Huxford's 9th edition-page-119-frame-272. But the I have came in it's original box-with 8 small coasters
& a large 7-1/2" coaster. I already had a set like the one in the Huxford's book. What is unique about the set I
have,is it has the Golden Gate International Expositon Seal on the box. So,I pulled out some other go-alongs & took some
pictures! All the graphics on this page were scanned from my old Mexican go-alongs,napkins,towels,ect. Nothing now,can compare
to those vivid colors you find on the go-alongs from years ago! Enjoy. See what you started Carol:-). I so love the calendar!
Poncho Villa & his Wife~Mexican Heritage Calendar 2002
My Mom told me many stories about when she was a young girl growing up in Deming,New Mexico about Pancho Villa coming through
her town during the Mexican Revolution. She was born in 1910. Deming is about 30 miles from Columbus,New Mexico,where he
would come across the border. I was thinking,how these dishes we collect,seem to intertwine around other things in our lives.

passion & yes,even Panco Villa & a Mexican blanket! And..nothing better than Mexican food served on Fiesta!!
