Drifter


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.

We love western artwork, and love to share it when possible.  We are trying to make sure we attribute the artist, because by golly, they deserve the praise both legally and morally.  Here is one found on the internet that made us happy, simply because one of our winter projects has been watching all of the Deadwood series. Tough job huh?

 

 

Change

The Happiest New Year to You!!!!


wagontrainWe always get one, it never fails. A new year I mean.  We received one even in the year 2000.  No matter what happens, time moves along,

The New Year  is traditionally a time for fresh starts, celebrations, resolve, and deep breaths.  Let the future come, we are ready for it.

Our life here at Lost Creek has changed;  we have moved, we have retired, we have added more chuck wagon teaching to our roster, are heading back into the world of commerce for J Tspunktilly goods, we have made a commitment to dedicate ourselves to a bit of growth, and we hope to always improve, always inspire,always kick out and move!

We wish for you the same, A year of blessings and aspirations, a year of positive change and love.

From Lost Creek to You!  Happy Tidings and Great Cheer!
