And I met Nicky and Mike the very next day. Being new here I have been over their direction yet. Their corner of the county looks a lot nicer than my corner.

I think your corner is probably pretty nice too!

Mine is pretty steep. I guess the sign on the road through my property that says watch out for bighorn sheep should have been a clue. But I am loving it here. Wish I had moved here 40 years ago.

You wouldn't be thinking of Jess McGinley by any chance?

Well, a hop skip and jump away. Seems like the summer of 2019 was kind of that way. One Internet acquaintance from Nebraska took a trip to the Oregon Coast. I found out too late, tried to make a connection. We just couldn't.

Hey Nicky and Mike, trying to get in touch with you and this is where Google found you. Hope you're well and life is good. Loved seeing these pictures. Hard to find a way to connect these days - other than the Nelson's we're down to just a handful of old folk although JoAnn is still going strong. Celebrating my 41st birthday this month if that gives you perspective! Anyway, we're down to two TWH and looking for two more if you have any geldings coming up in the next couple of years - and still looking for a pup out of Jocko's line, but that well may be dry. Please keep my email and keep in touch: justkristinthanks@gmail.com. You're never far from my heart, and always in my prayers.
