« Part 21: Back to the future Part 22 of Another day, another nickle series Part 23: OUCH, again!!! »

Today we moved to Jackson Hole. To Snake River Ranch to be exact. I’m sitting here at my new laptop and the first bookmark I put in was LJ. We are residing in the cook house/dining hall. I don’t think I’ve ever lived in a more scenic location. The Tetons on one side and the Snake River on the other. It will be even prettier when the snow is gone. We got into quite a snow storm on our way in today and more coming down now. We have wireless here so I’ll be on here bothering you guys whenever I have the chance. Talk to ya later.

well thos…so good to hear from you…Ive been wondering what happened to you all and what you were going to do…and now sorry its happened to you and we will all try to understand, but its a bit strange for this to happen to a guy , but were pretty patient and will give all the support we can, now your exact words were that you would be on here to bother us when you had the change…you might want to wait a few days…let the hardest part go away….if you want to tell us all about the shopping spree’s and what else you folks do when you have the change…just take it slowly…your in my prayers…...LOL….LOL… your words buddy…and my smart butt sense of humor….....grizzman

Hi Thomas

Good to hear from you again. Glad to here you are in your your new home. My wife always tells me things happen for a reason. When I lost my job once it seemed like it turned out to be a blessing where more good came from it than bad. Keep us posted on your new journey.

God Bless

It is good to hear from you, Tom. It sounds like you have got it made (except for the snow part since I really do not get a thrill out of shoveling snow anymore). :)

I am looking forward to hearing more from you.

No snow here!
Flowers are blooming.
Birds are returning.
Our Mother Duck is sitting on a nest.
Fish are bitting.
A little bit of Saw dust still floating in and out of the shop. Looks to be a great spring.

Welcome to your new home!

Hi Old Friend.
Miss your kind words and great stories. So glad things worked out better for you and Carleen. At least I pray they’re better, hard to imagine them being worse. Blessed with wireless connection even. The good Lord takes care of good people. Can’t wait to hear one of your great campfire stories without the snow. That’s gonna be gone soon for you too I hope. Damn, since I lost the tip of my finger the end is wider and I end up hitting two keys instead of one. LOL. As Frank always says, Godspeed., best wishes Mike.

Congratulations on the new job and scenery. Jackson is pretty but pricey. It can’t be all bad if someone pays you to work in such a beautiful place. Keep the wolves and bears at bay. Happy trails.

Thomas, Glad to hear you are setting up home in such a beautiful place. Hope the snow dispapears soon and you can get one with that new multifaceted position you got. Good Luck, look forward to hearing more from you soon.
