The above featured photo is of a cattle branding location at Long Canyon at the edge of the San Augustin Plains in the early 1960’s. The ranch women would deliver lunch in their cars on roads that weren’t made for cars but the women handled the situation well and so did the cars. You can bet the men were ready for a warm lunch and coffee. The lunches were often elaborate such as you would find at a Sunday dinner table complete with cakes, cobblers, pies and homemade cookies to go along with the ham or roast beef, beans and potatoes.
