One of my favorite blogs to follow is “Please Turn Back the Years” by Pagosa Springs native Billy Willet who says he is “a displaced Pagosa Springs refugee. Left this little piece of heaven in the San Juan Mountains at the age of 17 to join the Navy. Honorably discharged after completed a so-called kiddie cruise just under four years. Retired from a major aerospace mfg. and now spend my days nursing aches and pains.”
From: “Then and Now”
The quote that runs along the top of his page says: “Ever wonder why so much effort is put into growing up and achieving great wealth or stardom? If only we could turn back the years, maybe we would have treasured such simple things as a family at meal time saying a simple prayer of thanks for the biscuits and and gravy or a special thanks for a chicken leg from your father’s coup.”
Mr. Willet has been gracious enough to forward me an ongoing supply of Pagosa Springs photos he has from the 1950s and earlier. Thanks again, Mr. Willet for allowing me to share your photos with my readers.
