This little quilt was made for Dennis by his grandmother Afton. She would make one side pink and one side blue that way these little quilts would work no matter what. It is in pretty good shape considering it is at least 56 years old now.

Back In The Saddle Again, Mueller Canyon












This is a ride we took over a week ago, it was a new trail for both of us. Dennis had been on the other side of these mountains and was hoping to meet up with a trail that he had already been on but as we rode I would question him are you sure this is the right one he kept telling me it was so I cowboyed up and followed. We we got to a point where a big tree had fallen so has he worked his way around I sat back and watched it was one of those moments when I wish I would have thought to take the camera out ready for some action. As him and his horse went across this little stream when all of a sudden him and his horse sunk up to the belly of the horse. The roan starts crow hopping trying to get out (of the I guess you could say quick sand) and Dennis trying to stay on. He finally got the horse calmed down and was able to dismount him and get them both out of the situation quite well. Had to giggle once it was over, just wish I would have captured it because now it is his word against mine. After they collected their wits a hiker came by and Dennis asked some questions about the trail we had indeed taken the wrong one so we back tracked and went on a different trail. Heard on the tv the other day a man will drive around for a half an hour lost before he will ask for directions women waste about 15 minutes.
It was still a great day to be up in the mountains the colors were faded like an old worn out tapestry but it was still beautiful.

Graduation Day

Kyle was able to graduate out of ICU yesterday things are looking good, I am sure the many blessings sent his way have helped. Kari as been by his side night and day only leaving for short periods of time to see the girls. They do not make those couches comfortable at all in the waiting rooms so I am sure she is exhausted.

Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose.”


Just when you think life is running smoothly once again something comes up and knocks you for a loop. My youngest son Kyle is in ICU battling pneumonia right now it went from bad to worse very quickly. How can this strong young man get over taken so quickly by something you can not even see. But he is young and strong and is hopefully on the mend at this point in time. They say he may be in the hospital for a week I hope he can prove them wrong. Gotta love this kid...and I do.
He is also the father to that cute little baby girl sleeping in the pumpkin patch.
