I thought you all might enjoy this old family photo I restored of my beloved suegra, doña Rosa, from I believe around 1934 or 1935. It was taken in Tehuántepec, Oaxaca when she and my suegro, don Fernando, lived there. She is wearing a traditional dress she made and embroidered by hand, and she is wearing a borrowed necklace and matching earrings made of gold coins. I'm working on a brief biography of her written by Kapi Bustos a couple of decades ago which I hope to publish on my blog in a few days, in case anyone is interested.

Doña Rosa is about 20 or 21 years old in the photo right before she and don Fernando moved to Zihuatanejo.

Thank you kindly. But even more important than any physical beauty she inherited from her mother are her mother's excellent values and principles and the strength of her character. Lupita's mother is from the same neighborhood as María Felix in Hermosillo, Sonora, and she had similar traits of resilience and strong will and character that La Doña was also known for.

At the risk of channeling Sarah Palin, ("I can see Russia from my kitchen!";).... my Ford Fusion was built in Hermosillo. So, yes, good things come from there.

Who knows? With Trump's unpredictability, my Hermosillo-built Ford may become a collector's item.
