Lori and Rebecca's Backyard Ornament: Pedro's Story

Thanks Lori Mathis for sharing this photo and story: "For many years Pedro sat in my Grandmother Ruth's yard at the Desert Sea Rancho's on the northeastern bluff above the Salton Sea. Growing up my Grandmother and I were very close, I spent many weekends with her after my Grandfather died, and then also when she remarried and moved out to the desert. When my Grandmother left her desert home 10 years ago to move closer to her children I asked if I could have the little concrete Mexican boy who for 20 plus years kept watch over her rancho. My sister-in-law took him, repainted him and gave him the beautiful expression he displays in our backyard. Pedro is by far our favorite yard ornament".
