Soapweed, you should enter some of your pictures in the Tri-State's photo contest. Not big money, but more people could enjoy your photos.

Is there anyway to get that Windmill picture on as a background? I love pictures of windmills.

When we first moved here, my husband wanted a windmill. He told a crusty old rancher he was looking for a windmill. "Do you know anything about windmills?" the old fella asked.

"No", said my husband.

To which the old fella replied:

"You don't want one."

reader (the Second) said:
Your pictures are making me sad I didn't stay in ranch country where I grew up and sad that I'm too old and tired to start this kind of life at 55!

Seeing you and Saddletramp on your horses also brings back fond memories of my dad on his horse when I was little. He died when I was 8 but he loved his horse better than anything.

Beautiful. That second or third picture with the lake and your homestead in the distance is breathtaking. I'm definitely coming through your area when I start seeing the U.S.

Where in ranch country did you grow up? Ranching can be a hard life, and to outsiders it looks "lonely". To be truthful, I am most lonely when I'm stranded in some big city with people all around.

Guess what makes the world an interesting place to live, is that everyone marches to a different drummer. Variety is the spice of life. Different strokes for different folks.

Interesting. I went through basic training and AIT at Fort Ord in the summer of 1972. Did quite a bit of touring of California on the week-ends, but didn't happen to get up to that area. Do you know the Cleek family? They are California transplants from near of where you speak, that bought a nice Sandhills ranch north of Cody, Nebraska. Hank Cleek is the dad, and his son, Kurt, is about my age. Kurt was at our branding a year ago, and his horse had a little fit. Kurt ended up on the ground. I couldn't resist chiding him, "Looks like you are up a Cleek without a saddle." He took it fairly well.
