1938 – 2020
Nedra Mae Wood

Born November 10, 1938 in Tucson, Arizona, to the late Howard Wood and Anna (Mustain) Wood.  A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Nedra was only a small child living during the depression when she lost her mother, then a little while later her father.  She was graciously taken in by her aunt and raised just like her own.  While she persevered through life, she was a very talented artist, creating many pieces of her own throughout the years.  Nedra was a devoted, loyal friend.  She loved to be outdoors and was an avid gardener.  Her loving spirit and kind soul will be missed.

She is survived by her special friend, Sally Langston; and numerous cousins; and a host of family and friends that will miss her dearly. Continue reading

Charley’s Fajita Spice Mix

We consulted the internet and found several recipes, examining the feel, flavor, and core tastes of the fajita spice mix! To get the taste that other chefs like and modify it to match our tastes and our pantry is always the challenge, but I find it really easy!  A little more of this, a little less of that, oh my we have noe of this, or something like that and you will be file. Some leave out the garlic, some leave out the cayenne, everyone has their fears, loves, and exclusions. I encourage you to develop your own version, we have fun, and you just might too!  

So here it comes, our version:


1 Tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder (optional)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

No Disclaimers, Only good tastes, every different version is like going to a different restaurant.
