Highlights, Part Deaux

My Sister visits, and finds out that though I say I've been working, Life is just fun

See the similarity?  Though she definitely looks more civilized than I.

The Wildlife cooperated as usual, and I got to show her around.

Wayne's sister came to visit, with husband and friend.  THAT was a fun day on the lake that I think maybe I mentioned once or so

And finally a horse does sneak in the barn!

I'm pretty happy that I got to meet Tom Davis.  He is 97 years old, and irrigates hundreds of acres of pasture by hand.  Trust me, I've seen him do it.  Gives new meaning to keep on keepin' on huh?  Everyone should have that kind of work ethic.  He is the Grandson of Tom and Julia Davis, who donated the land that the Julia Davis Park in Boise is on.  The stories he can tell were fairly spell binding.  Of course, I like old history like that.  But he talks of riding horseback from Boise up to the ranch we were on.  Taking 2 days in a snow blizzard, with his sister.

My sister's Dog, McKenna couldn't help barking and wanting into the corrals where we were sorting to ship.  So, she had to stay inside,  But she looks cute!

Sharon had visitors from California, of course she brought them to us!  Who doesn't benefit from going back to basics?  We just take them along working with us.

I did say they were from California.... so handling a barbed wire gate can be tricky...but we make them do it!

Wonderful photos as always and as always lots of fun to share with us.

I think I might know how your Grandson Bryce got hls name. I used to help my friend clean that office a long time ago when it was in that big old victorian house which now sits over by East Elementary

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 1:57 PM

Not sure which old Victorian house you're referring to..

-- Posted by jessiemiller on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 2:08 PM

I just love the pictures and re-caps. I am going to try to do that myself.

Thank you for your support last night.

No problem.... glad I was there for ya

And glad you like this blog

-- Posted by jessiemiller on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 3:06 PM

The one that used to sit across from the post office

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 3:58 PM

ahh... yes, I know which one you are referring to. My Dad worked with Bryce for awhile.

But my Grandson Bryce is in no way/shape/or form named after him. I hope no one else thinks that!


I've known BT for years obviously ...and just my personal opinion..I don't care alot for him

-- Posted by jessiemiller on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 4:10 PM

LMBO, Have known BT since he was in the AF and was here when he moved that old house over to N 10th. After I retired from the AF he was the first person I ended up work for on houses.

-- Posted by Eagle_eye on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 4:54 PM

I knew your Dad was there with BT and I not only helped a friend clean there, I also had another friend that worked there. My boys did yard work and I sometimes helped them.

-- Posted by MsMarylin on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 4:56 PM

Thanks Bo, I appreciate your comment. My photography is starting to kind of take over my life ..in a good way!

Yeah, I wasn't thrilled with her riding the steer, but I had to take a step back and let it be. As it was, she learned...well, nothing! or something... LOL, she's a toughie!

And I love Idaho too!

-- Posted by jessiemiller on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 8:59 PM

My dad didn't like us girls to ride steers either. A bucking pony yes @ the Miniature Rodeo at Fair time.

He always said that the steer would never hesitate to step on you, but a horse would go out of its way to avoid doing so.

I don't think that I am as brave and tough as your granddaughter. But girls these days seem to have something extra.

-- Posted by KH Gal on Wed, Jan 18, 2012, at 10:30 PM

Ahhhh these steers are pretty gentle, they mostly are just running.... But she is a tough one!

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
