Amazing Day

A few months ago, I received a call asking if I might be interested in talking to the Johnson County Cattlewomen at their Ag Summit.  (Yes, I live in Washakie County… this was in Buffalo, Wyoming… a *traveling* speaking engagement!)  I warned them I was more of a public WRITER than SPEAKER, but they wanted me anyway!

Today, I did it.

I did not tell them how I practiced on my drive to work, while alone cleaning my house, or random sections practiced with a curious Lucas at my feet.  I did not talk about the indecision on which posts to read.  And only a few heard directly how nervous I was at the last minute!  😉

I spent a little money in Buffalo, then hit the road to home.  You remember this route, I’ve taken you along it’s curvaceous highway before.  I timed it perfectly, getting to lower my sunvisor, raise my sunvisor, lower it, raise it, lower it, raise it.  I met many a snowmobiler coming down pulling his sleds behind his pickup… but no moose nor elk this trip.  The sun kissed the mountain tops goodnight as snowfence sentries stood at attention.

  5. I’m a little late in sending congratulations on being a guest speaker! I bet it leads to other avenues of sharing ranch life. And today’s first photo was very interesting with the blend of colors and the snow (i.e. sable and white, like my Taffy!!). The second picture reminded me of the pioneers coming to a notch (gap) in the mountains, and wondering what lie ahead!

  6. Congratulations! Way to go!
    There is no feeling like descending into Ten Sleep and that feeling of being home washes over you, even for those of us that just visit. 🙂

  7. Congratulations! You keep this up and you won’t have time for ranching! Of course, now that you admitted it publically, everyone knows you were nervous! ;o) I know you did great!

  8. I just know you did a great job. I am sure you informed many of what is so interesting to many of us about ranching and no doubt how it affects our lives.
