24 June 2008. Smoke orange sun against haze at dawn. Fires in the north, county to county. From Loren: "The hills have disappeared into the smoke. A chopper loaded with retardent is passing as I type. We're OK, cough, choke..." Laytonville.
Familia Bemamán, 1930s, Villa Cañas, Provincia de Santa Fé. Don León Bemamán, fundador de la Tienda "La Liquidadora". De izquierda a derecha: Alberto, Salvador, Antonia Socías de Bemamán, Mercedes, Isaac y Don León en la antigua casa familiar.
La Liquidadora. The Wet Spot, maybe, or The Watering Hole. Or even (as in Oceanside, on Mission Street, a hemisphere and half a century away)... Suds and Spuds.
La Lopez Pereyra. Tony and Peter.
Lo todo es anhelo...
