Wild Game

With Thanksgiving a very recent memory, I would like to reflect on what I am thankful for.  I realize, as I troll social media and the internet, not everyone approves of hunting. Or raising your own food.  And, I find it rather funny, that I was not a hunter until I met my husband in my…

The Cowboy State

Here is the last post from Wyoming until at least next summer.  Me, my sister Rita, her new baby, Athena and my Addie all took a day trip into the mountains just outside of Laramie.  While down low, the weather was quite warm, things changed dramatically as the elevation grew.

Addie could hardly contain herself and as soon as we hit the…
