This is a cry of despair for old men, miners and others. Prompted by Saturday’s viewing of the movie of similar title, namely No Country for Old Men.

What better way to start the new week with a quiet trip down history’s memory lane. On the website of the Sante Fe New Mexican is a fascinating posting on the start of mining by the Spanish in New Mexico. Appears the Spanish merely took over a lead mine, long mined by the Indians:
The principal lead deposit worked by the Indian miners lay three miles west of their village. It was a spectacular vein that came right to the surface, perfectly accessible. The width of the vein was only about a yard, but the depth of the ore body extended far into the ground. Over the centuries, with nothing more than primitive implements, the Indians had created a deep trench that stretched some 60 yards in length.
