This year the Veteran’s Day Weekend coincided with the last teaching weekend at the Fur Peace Ranch for the year 2013… and what a weekend it was. Before I get to the goings on at the Ranch, Veteran’s Day is always and important day. I take the day to call the brothers and sister I know who either have served or are serving and thank them. In my heart I also thank everyone who has rendered or is rendering service to this amazing country of ours. Many thanks and blessings. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed!
A week or so ago when I started collecting pictures for this it was still, for all practical purposes… fall.
It was a perfect weekend at the Ranch… Temperate… blue skies… and my son Zach joined us for the Veteran’s Day Weekend.
It was to be a wonderful concert night and we had our friend Jim Wall filling the percussion throne for us… and he was the greatest. Thanks Jim… we have to do this again!

What a beautiful weekend!
It was a great weekend of music and fellowship at the FPR… you can’t make this magic up. Tuesday morning I woke up to this:
…and walking Maverick, Dog Of Destiny, this is the old Schoolhouse Road that runs through our property here at Hillside Farm. Think the late 1800’s.
As I was walking the dog, I could hear my Amish neighbors buggies heading up the road and I though about where I am in my life today, and you know… I’m right on schedule. I’m right where I need to be!
