Last night my hubby and I went in to Valentine and had supper with Soapweed and his sis Sybil, Mr and Mrs NR, Mr. and Mrs Saddletramp. What a great time we had. Truly wonderful people. Made me a little homesick...And I want to thank everyone for giving me a chance to get to know them. :D

Did you kiss all the cowboys, did you shoot out the lights? Did you dance on the bar, did you start a big fight( trumpet blurb) . . .? :lol:

That, my dear was "Jose Quervo" and I probably misspelled it~

Great song and I thought it was a cute question for Cal to ask.

If you really haven't heard that song, you better get a CD and listen!!

Darn, can't think of who sings it... :help:

I'm thinking it might be Tanya Tucker.

It is Shelly West, Dottie West's daughter.

Cal, I hugged them. Does that count :p Wait till I see YOU... I will make a scene. :wink:
We'll have to all meet up at the casino sometime, nobody'll notice. :lol:

I was going to try and post some pictures tonight, but they're all downloaded on the Misses' computor. I think I value my hide and will wait until she gets home to post them, since I have this habit of getting into computor messes. She's doing the "tour director" thing this week, and took a group to NYC. Three (maybe just 2 ?) Broadway plays, a tour in a yacht, sightseeing, I can't believe BobM didn't go! :wink: I honestly couldn't get too excited about a week in the Big Apple, either, but hey! It might be fun. All those people, though. :???:

Cal,
You don't know what you are missing. I did Provider Pals with a school just off of Central Park last year, I could never fall in love with NY but the experience was really something. When we saw what those people live like, went to the World Trade Center hole, the Broadway play, the Empire State building, all of the sites, it was something to see. We also saw kids riding the subway to school, homeless sleeping with their belongings in their shopping cart, beggers, hookers, you name it we saw it. Thank God we got to come back here when it was done. great experience, loved every minute, but soooooo glad to come back home to no planes, no trains, no automobiles and sure as hell, no people :wink:

Living WITH people all around is a different kind of challenge in life.

Some think of climbing Mnt Everest as a challenge. Or sports as a challenge. Them's small potatoes!


As I see it our contacts with people are the more enduring challenges.
It calls on so many skills, verbal and non-verbal, when to trust, when not to trust. What helps and what isn't helpful or might even harm.
Weighing risks with street savvy yet aiming for compassion and acceptance. For the Christian it is supposed to mean seeing each person as a soul that God loves dearly.
Now THERE is a life-long challenge and one I fall short on daily
:oops: because SELF rears her ugly head. [/i]

nr - wise words from a wise person. It is better to recognize the challenge and miss rising to it from time to time than to never even see it at all.

Blessings to you.

I will certainly second what sw wrote. You are a WISE WOMAN, nr, very open-minded and THAT is something we all could work on. Staying open minded is really a challenge, even as aware of it as I am, I still fail at times.

I think having nr on ranchers.net has been very good for all of us. A gracious, wise and caring woman, with the heart of a cowboy.

Yes, better to miss rising to the challenge than to never recognize there ever was one. sw said it better than I and he is so right on.

My niece lives and works in New York City, (she teaches). She has only been there about one year, but she likes the place. Unusual, I think, for someone coming from a little town lke Valentine, Nebraska.

We just returned from a Denver church service where they happened to be having a send-off for a young couple who are going to northern Uganda to serve. Talk about a challenge: this is an area where a megalomaniac in control has been stealing young boys for years for his army ( I think they said 27,000 kids but I'm not good at remembering numbers) and they've stolen young girls from boarding school for sex slaves. This will be a lengthy term of service for the young couple living as the natives do. Now there are some folks with real commitment to a challenge in a dangerous setting.

Darn it, wish we could have made it to Deadwood and heard about it first hand. Maybe next time.
