short(ish) version of a long story as told by coco, not gil:
my sweetie was born and raised in el paso, tx. we met in albuquerque, nm and lived there for a while. then we moved to portland, oregon and lived there for a really long while. then we had a baby and i wanted to move closer to my parents, so we moved to maine. neither of us had ever lived in maine but thought it can't be that different than the places we've been before.
it's pretty different.
my sister's husband gave us a crazy old snowblower for a housewarming gift. two days after we signed on the dotted line and took over the hogfarm, there was a major blizzard. and our pipes froze. and some other horrible stuff happened. feeling like he couldn't be any farther from his chicano roots, and to try and stop my continuous sobbing, gil put on our sombrero and figured out how to run the snowblower.
i dried my tears, took a few photos and our very favorite holiday card ever was born.
if it tickles your funnybone, we'd like to share it with you. various sizes available, printed with archival inks on archival paper.
peace, love, and fair trade,
