A Pleasant Surprise

October 2, 2012 at 10:12 pm (Uncategorized)

one beautiful sunny morning,

The lady I care for and I set off to run some errands. We bought gas in Hayden lake. After I purchased the gas, we took a drive toward honeysuckle beach. The water was clear as glass, and there were a few boats out fishing. Heading back toward town, we noticed a doe lying down by a tree in a neighbor’s yard. We were talking to the homeowner, who told us there was a small group of deer that come and eat apples off the ground. As we were driving back to the stoplight, I noticed one deer was halfway across the street. We stopped for the deer to cross and noticed the rest of the deer waiting to cross the street into the empty field. We were both excited to see all those beautiful deer, which is becoming a rarity due to wolf attacks. On occasion, you still see a deer grazing in someones front lawn. It takes me back to memories of the ranch…..

Moving to the Ranch

When Jeff and I were 8 years old, we moved to the ranch. What a mess; it took 10 dump truck loads to clean the place up to where we could move in.

I could remember thinking there weren’t to many living rooms big enough to have a standard sized pool table.

Behind our house was an orchard. Jeff and I had the run of this orchard. We would ride our horses in the orchard until the horses or the dog would think we went too far, and would turn around and go home.

Mom and dad would host the “opening day of hunting season” party. Mom never knew how many people would show up on opening day. One year she had 50 people go hunting.

Because our house was large, and we had acreage, my uncle and his family would come out and ride the horses. My uncle bought my cousin a horse. He kept the horse in our corral.

We also had sheep, goats, cows, rabbits, visiting snakes, deer that ate the dog’s food (princess cried) and owls hooting in the trees.(excerpt from Healing In The Storms)
