Help!

A while back I had a reader comment with this:

“Carol, I am 92 and my father, William H. Small, owned two ranches near Ten Sleep. Two of my siblings were born there. My sister was born in 1919 and my brother in 1916. Some time around early 20s there was a winter of 56 below. my father couldn’t get food or water to the Herefords and they died. He lost everything. Would you know anything about the Small ranches? My niece sent me the Red Dirt Diary article in Working Ranch..very interesting. Her husband is a cattleman in Florida. G.”

Well, I asked Vernon.  It sounded “familiar” but no details came to him.

I looked up Small in the Ten Sleep history book… nope.

I posted to a local facebook group, but didn’t get any results.

I did find some homestead information from the Government Land Office… but I think she may be looking for stories…

Anyone out there able to share any memories for G????

My Day

A library morning program…

A little of this…

calfA hike…

Some wildlife…

cottontailMore rain!

That was my day.

Kicks and Giggles

Calving’s going great…

We had a great soft rain for one day, getting .76″ on my rain gauge… it’ll be green now!

Working in my yard has commenced…

But we stopped all that for a little fundraiser for Ten Sleep Schools… the third annual Blue and White Alumni game.

Of course, Daniel was on the blue team and Brandon was on the white… so we just cheered!

It was all in good fun… lots of pranks, blatant fouls against those blasting wide open for shots, and for some reason, it was always called white ball when it went out of bounds…

DanielDaniel takes the ball down the court…

BrandonBrandon shoots a free throw…

DanielDaniel blocked that inbound pass!

teamsWay to go Ten Sleep Alumni!  Thanks for the kicks and giggles!
