Back twenty years ago, my sisters were listening to a local Native American radio station one Sunday morning. Country gospel songs were the theme of the show, and sandwiched in among the others was "Heaven's Just a Sin Away" by the Kendalls. My sisters got a big laugh out of it.

George I'll try and get a neighbor lady to come tape one-I'd of won 'funniest videos' many times if I'd of had a camera at all the brandings. Lots of impromptu bronc rides over the years lol. Mine went pefectly smooth-the cows were a bit cagey wanted to drift on the kids but they shaped their herd good and brought them in at a walk-the same guys we branded with were here and Ty and his bull riding busddies wrestled-pretty much a perfect day. We have 400 to do at a friends on Tuesday-can't wait. The only thing that sucks is Ty ropes better than me lol-not a hard feat.

Those are wonderful pictures NR. Looks like you're raising all the help you'll need and they're all good looking kiddies.
