Feeding the old fashion way...

It is snowing... Tell me something new. Danny has been busy getting the teams ready to start feeding the cows. The snow is so deep in Wisdom that he has to use horses to feed his cows. This is a picture from last year. Notice the lead Mare with her ears pointed. Her name is Bess, Danny's favorite. She will pull her heart out. She has bad arthritis and will no longer be in the string. Sad for both of them. She has taught Danny alot. Hopefully we can get a colt out of her next year.


Rowdy's first encounter with Santa. He went willingly, he had CANDY! Every year the kids in Wisdom put on a Christmas play. The kids were so cute and they did a really good job. It always puts me in the Christmas sprirt to hear the kids sing Silent Night.

Grandma Geneva

My Grandma Geneva - my dad's mom, passed away on December 3rd in California. She was 86, old but not old enough. My Mom and I was able to get to Cali the day before she went. Grandma had a masive stroke on Sunday 11-29-09 and her brain couldn't recover. I'm so glad that I know what happens when the spirit leaves this world. I am very grateful for the plan of salvation. This picture was taken last October when she came to see her 1ST Great Grand child, Rowdy was 4 months old.

Rowdy's 1st Shiner...

I decieded to paint my bedroom the other night(it looks really good by the way). I had moved all of my furniture to the center of the room. I went to get some more paint and in the mean time...Rowdy had crawled on the dog kennel and gotten on the bed. He then proceeded to jump on the bed and fell off the other side, breaking his fall was the cedar chest and the side of his face. There wasn't much blood but there was a lot of swelling. I was up most of the night checking on him to make sure that he didn't have a concussion. I'm sure that it will be the first of many!

Steelehead Fishing on the Salmon River

Danny's Steelehead was 26 inches. This one is the only one that he landed. But he had several other bites. I also landed one. It was a 28 inch female native. I had to let it go because it was a wild Steelehead. You can only keep the hatchery ones.
My uncle Chris and Danny showing Rowdy the Fish. He wasn't too sure of it.

Down the Salmon River... My mom took us, my uncle, my two cousins and my Grandpa Steelehead fishing for my Grandpa's birthday. It was a blast. I cant believe that we have lived in Salmon for almost 11 years and had never been fishing on the Salmon. My dad would have loved it!
