Broke Cowboy, that was very interesting. You should keep writing your life experiences, publish them in book form, sell the books, and you will make a fortune yet. Put me on your list. I'd love to read your autobiography.

Thanks BC!
Ain't it amazing how life was so much better when we look back?

Sounds just like Rich Hobson described, in the book. How come there are no cattle outfits in there? To rough, wild and too many predators?

Ya, makin' up with the little woman is sure usually worth the fight!

I've known about Willies Lake for sometime and during the stampede would be a good time to go. I've read all of the Paul St Pierre books and they are great too. I think me and Smith would probably make good neighbors.

Thank you so much for your reply and post. Good story and you ought to relate more. Hell, send some to Darrel Arnold to publish in Cowboy Magazine.

Maybe I'm not remembering properly but there was a series a few years back called 'Nothing too Good for a Cowboy'. I think it was based on those books. It was pretty good from what I remember. That blonde doctor off of 'Scrubs' played Hobson's wife.


I remember that show. Catch a rerun of it every once in-awhile on CBC. One of my favourite shows of all time. Yes, it was based on Richard Hobson's experiences in BC. :D

Hmmm...after browsing around for a bit, I discovered something interesting. I guess that show still is running new episodes on the Women's Television Network, but with new actors. :o

Thanks for posting the link, Aaron. I e-mailed them to see if it might be possible to purchase some of the segments of the series.

We'll see what happens.

Gosh~the Women's Channel, eh?
Some of the best shows here are on Lifetime (for Women).
Guess that's an indication of our good taste, eh?

My daughters started watching Mcleod's daughters on WE. I watch sometimes as they do a little Camp Drafting once in a while.

Okay, BMR, you have my curiosity up.

What is Camp Drafting?

Tully or Colin could probably answer you better but I would call it the Aussie version of the working cow horse. They have to manipulate a cow thru a series of obstacles under control but at a speed. They only show bits and pieeces so hard to get the whole picture but it looks like it would be fun. :cowboy:
