It’s real – at last!! This book has been rattling around in my head for a long time but it’s finally down on paper – with wonderful pen&ink illustrations by John Grafe!
1996, San Francisco, California
“I reached up and grabbed my boss's bony little shoulders and shook him, trying to make my point. He looked at his secretary, who was standing nearby, and said "You're a witness. I've just been harassed." I didn't realize at that moment that this would mark the end of my career with El Paso Natural Gas and that I would soon be on my way to exciting new adventures in New Mexico. Or that these adventures would include a booth at the Tesuque Flea Market and a log cabin with a curse. ”
Expecting a quiet retirement in Tesuque, New Mexico, the author was confronted with a surprising cast of characters and the experience of being a vendor at the world-renowned Santa Fe Flea Market. Her little adobe house in the Tesuque Meadow condominium gave her a front row seat on a progression of fascinating neighbors and the intrigue of a possibly haunted cabin. As the editor of the Rusty Pipeliner, a monthly newsletter published for the retirees of El Paso Natural Gas Company and Meridian Oil, she recounted her experiences, much to the delight of the retirees. This book brings back to life what happened between June 2002, when she opened her booth at the flea market, and October 2003, when the flea market was suddenly shut down.
