My apologies for not attending to the blog while my husband David and I were on vacation. We visited the beautiful state of Colorado and had the opportunity to spend a wonderful evening with my second cousin, Catherine Austin Thomas and her husband Tom. Catherine lived in the Avalos Colony from 1931-1948 and is a wealth of information about life in the Colony. I hope to share some of these stories in the near future but for now here is a photo from our visit. From left to right: My husband David, me (Liz Delgado Marquez), Catherine and her husband Tom.
