Today's Features

  • Memorial Day is always memorable for me, here in our big mountains. Friends, neighbors, actually … and I try to “tour the ranch” as such on our ATVs. Tinta Negra, my old dog decided she would guard this house this time. She’s 12 now and thinks it is best to hold down the back step.

    We start off by going past our ranch cemetery, and we all silently wish those aren’t with us well. May they rest in peace, and this includes our many dear dogs and cats.

  • Surprises come in different ways, I’ve learned. I sometimes remember to watch Antiques Roadshow on Channel  5. About the time I start to think that old piece of junk hiding on the shelf is just that: junk, I see something very similar appraised on that show, and it is usually worth a lot of money.
