Putting on Your Best Bib and TuckerPosted Friday, May 18, 2012, at 9:54 PM
A group of us met at Laura's house and had supper this evening. We enjoyed the garden; the birds, the wonderful breeze and each other's company.
We miss Susan. She held such a special place in all of our hearts. We miss her laugh and her wicked sense of humor.
Susan gave us the best of herself always. She had so much love in her heart for everyone.
Life is too darn short to quarrel with anyone. Find some common ground and build on it. Make someone's day in honor of your own loved ones who have passed on.
Happy Birthday Susan.

Fixing fence is the one of the hardest jobs on a ranch. I no longer live on a ranch, but I do know what hard work is. Fences are everyone's concern, but nowadays,the "hole" is always your neighbor's side not your own. It used to be that you would respect your neighbor and mend the fence together. If their cows got in your field, a simple phone call resolved the problem. You might even saddle up your own horse and help them gather them up. We need more people who are willing to roll their sleeves up and fix the fence regardless of who your neighbor is. There are people in this country who need to be reminded that a fence is like the way you should conduct your life. Your posts should be straight and neat. The wire needs to be stretched tight and your gate might be closed, but can still be easily opened. And most of all, we can all saddle up together and ride the range, it won't matter if you have an Appaloosa, Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred. The cows still have to be gathered, fences have to be fixed, and the range is a wide open space of opportunity for us all.
