In 1964, Barbra Streisand had a hit song in which she declared that nobody was gonna rain on her parade. Had Babs been in Clovis in 2015, she would have been disappointed. The 98th Annual Clovis Rodeo Parade was the third on my list of parades to see this year, and it was a wet one. A steady downpour made the cancellation of this popular event a definite possibility. But this is Clovis, rough and tough, a way of life! The show must go on! So, appropriately attired in boots, cowboy hat, and red raincoat, I staked out my place deep in the heart of Old Town.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…at least in Old Town Clovis.
It was November 29, 8:30 p.m., and I decided to take a stroll. The lights are already up. They are mostly tasteful and elegant. But they are also quite gaudy in some places, yet strangely compelling and welcome. It seems that the tasteless becomes tasteful when it is associated with the holidays, especially in a place that possesses a Christmas-town-like aura all year round.

There are several things you notice when you walk through the door of Kuppa Joy on Clovis Avenue in Old Town Clovis. One is that there are people present, working, conversing, and sipping coffees and teas in a welcoming atmosphere that is rustic and contemporary. You notice that there is community gathering in the room creating community.

I vividly remember the first time I saw them. They filled the firmament over my head. My wife had called for me in the unmistakable and unambiguous voice that demanded I come. It was her positive and excited voice, but it was clear and urgent: “Come quick!”
