Hush, You Puppy!


420px-Cattle-TrailsChuck wagon food came in many guises, some good, some really really good, and some just horrid.

Far be it for the cowboy to complain about the food that got put on his tin platter.  No grumpy cookie wanted to hear complaints after he has just spent a long day on the trail, driving, setting up camp, tending wounds, herding cowpokes and cooking vittles.

A smart cow wrangler ate what he got, smiled, and asked for more!!

(and in appreciation of Cassandra Swanson…Rattlesnake Roast should be on this list!)

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
