Do The Right Thing



Every once in a while you come across someone doing something just because others will benefit. Whatever they may gain comes in the form of pleasure for a job well done and the gratitude of friends and neighbors. For that reason, I would like to introduce you to "Colorado Bob" who just happens to live in Lubbock, Texas. Don't ask, it's a long, long story and Colorado Bob does have a way with words and the time to use them when he isn't being a leather artist, community and global warming activist, gardner, and just a nice human being.

It started with "Peggy Chapman's Garden" ... just making a wall against an old theater and an empty lot with places to sit and enjoy the flowers. It went on to become "The Downtown Art Market". Now it is the "Hopi Blue Corn Project". Now the corn experiment is a first come first served project to plant in as many locations as possible, so if you are interested and your spring planting time is now or soon, you need to move quickly to get the seeds while they last, and get this symbol of health and prosperity in the ground.
