geneWe have a good friend named Gene Smith. (AKA; Drifter, Butch, Tootsie).  Drifter passed from this life 3 years past

His personality while on earth was enormous, his love of life immense.  We loved him, still love him.

His wife; Gretchen of the warm and lovely laugh, has had a surprise party for him every year on his birthday since.  Drifter is always there, although I am pretty sure he is no longer surprised.  He is there in the stories of his friends who will always remember him, in the smiles of the bikers, the shooters, the reenactors and all the friends, neighbors and family who had the honor to call him their pard.

We look forward to this years’ celebration in May… be ready.

Our Friend Lonesome Ron

ronWe have a musical friend called Lonesome Ron.  He is the kind of fella that is always there if needed.  The kind of friend that we don’t often see, and when we do, he is just all Ron once again.  He remembers every-ones birthday (even my daughter’s!)  and sends a musical greeting of his own device.

He is kind, tall, and good.  We very much like Ron!

Ron is talented, he yodels, he sings cowboy songs, jazz, rock. he plays a bass, a guitar, a mandolin, and more than likely many more instruments.

Well all, Our Lonesome Ron has released his first CD and his having a release party this weekend.  I wish we could go, but we are at a family event that night.  But y’all  if you are in the Mankato area on March 28th, stop in, your time will be well spent!!!ron cd release
