The Association of Mature American Citizens emails little tidbits of stories each week. This week included the following:

Crook or Cook

A burglar broke into a Mexican restaurant in Hicksville, NY, stole $100 from the cash register and then proceeded to cook up a storm. He was caught on surveillance video and the owner of the eatery was very impressed with the crook’s cooking skills.

The thief knew his way around a commercial kitchen and, apparently, he was a neat freak who made sure he cleaned up after himself. He even left a one-dollar tip after enjoying his meal.

I bumped into a lady from Bovina this week that sells homemade burritos. Her name is Sylvia Guerra and owns Morena’s Burritos. She stated that everything she sells she makes from scratch including the tortillas, hot sauce, etc. She delivers breakfast and lunch burritos and will even make burritos to your liking if you call ahead. She has been doing this for 7 years. If you are interested in trying her burritos, give her a call at 575-777-1324.

“The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many.... September is dressing herself in showy dahlias and splendid marigolds and starry zinnias. October, the extravagant sister, has ordered an immense amount of the most gorgeous forest tapestry for her grand reception.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809–1894)
