Along 66, April 2021: Did Hemmingway or Did He Not in Cubero, N.M.. The Devil's Rope in Texas

APRIL 4

Did Ernest Hemmingway really write "The Old Man and the Sea" at Cubero?   Cubero, New Mexico.PBS is having a three-part series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novak on Hemmingway's life.  One of the questions they will look into is the persisting question as to whether Hemmingway wrote all or part of the famous short story in Cubero, New Mexico (pop. 289).

APRIL 9 

The Devil's Rope Museum in McLean, Texas, reopens for the first time in a year.  It has been closed because of the you-know-what.

The museum is a tribute to barbed wire which went a long way toward fencing in Texas.  And, as all of us from DeKalb, Illinois, know, barbed wire was invented in town!!
