CHANGE OF PLANS




Today we were to go to Tulsa for Ron's doctor's appointment and then to the Tulsa Gun Show. At the gun show it was going to be our privilege to meet Monica James of blog Changes In The Wind. The Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa is putting on a special 101 Ranch Exhibit and Monica was to be featured there and she will be signing and selling her book at the gun show. She is the author of BUCKSKIN BESSIE HER LOST LETTERS (101 Ranch Wild West Show Cowgirl). My heart is broken that circumstances developed to cause us to cancel both the doctor trip and the chance to meet this long-time shooting competitor, with "International Fast Draw Champion" as one of her claims to fame. Hopefully she will be back and we can meet her and her husband then.

Meanwhile you can see that my granddaughter Hope is keeping me company as I restock my fleaa market booth. Our grandson Mike is helping Ron around the barn and also helping harvest tunips. We're also looking for the arrival any moment of our friends from Kentucky.

And....as a very tiny added footnote, today is Ron's birthday but we're not supposed to make a big deal...Happy Birthday my dear.!!!


Oh yes, the contest winner will be announced on Sunday. So far there will be five names in the hat. My granddaughter Hope will draw out the name of the winner tomorrow and we will announce it on Sunday. This gives more of you a chance to guess the November "Color me who?" contest. The five clues should have let you right to the blogger's front door.

  3. Happy Birthday to Ron!! I tried to email my guess last night but I couldn't get my email to go through. Oh Well! Sorry you had to miss your gunshow! Do you like guns! My husband has alot of them, if I can find his secret key to the locked cabinet that they are in. I am supposed to give a certain rifle to his brother. That's one instruciton he gave me, to give this certain rifle to him his brother when he died. I don't know what the heck all do with all of the rest of them!
