For those of you who don't live in the Western US, "menudo" is a Mexican soup made from beef tripe, hominy and chiles, garnished with onion, oregano and more chiles.  It's also a word for "a little bit of everything, all mixed up".  So this is the page for all the records that don't fit into any major category.  No rhyme or reason, but didn't want to pass them up.

(Note from Debra:  In finding this little record, I was able to trace the author of a postcard to Ollie Towse Grice concerning family relationships !)
