South Dakota Again Revisited

This has been a wild year so far for the ranch in South Dakota.

The latest is a tornado going over. Clyde took some great pictures for those of you who have never seen a storm develop. He lives south of Rapid City.

I met them a long time ago and have enjoyed their company and emails and seeing a farm develop from a run down place.

Those two work at the place all the time and all that work really shows.

Friends Forever

Some times a picture reminds you of the best things in life. It is not gold and worldly goods, but the smile or letter or email in this age from a friend.

The South Dakota crew sent me a picture of their two cats, and how from basic dumped animals, they melded into their household.

They love animals especially cats.

Rose my little white, hairless at times, poodle barks at the cat Jonesy but let him be out past 230a and she is walking the floors and looking at the front door or the back door to see why he has not come in.

The neighborhood toughie was meowing one night and she started barking and the next thing I knew she was ready to defend her cat. She ran to the door and barked until Jonesy came running in when we opened the door.

Noah is a quiet computer playing kid. He comes up with some of the funniest things and then because everybody that hears him can not believe he is so funny. He loves being in the BSA and on a recent camping trip every body was telling us how funny he ad libbed in the skit.

Just a few of my favorite things.

Pat in New Jersey is a friend that I love to hear from. She sends some of the wildest emails. Loves Wayne and taught me how to play slots.

Now picture time
