NM's Cultural Affairs Secretary - Veronica Gonzales

 Cultural Affairs Secretary for the State of New Mexico Veronica Gonzales greets people after her presentation at Santa Fe Convention Center.  We had a chance talk about 'marbling' and marbling's mark on New Mexico as well as our State's influence on the ancient craft worldwide. Nice lady, nice skirt.

 I also got to talk to Tom Aaegeson, Santa Fe 's Mr. Folk-Art and Frank Cordero, Mayor Javier Gonzales' assistant. Frank reminded Mr. Aaegeson that they had worked together early on at the beginning of the Folk Art Market. I button-holed Mr. Aaegeson and we talked 'marbling' and its worldwide appeal and possibility of having another 'International Marblers' Gathering' in Santa Fe.
I asked if I could "take a picture of a couple of old-timers."
Mr. Aaegeson said, "Only if you strike the term old-timer."

The only bad part of the day was watching City Councilor Peter Ives, Chairman of Mayor Gonzales' Fitness Challenge (NOT!), hit on all the women. He is so un-cool.
