Well, we are back at Snake River Ranch in Jackson Hole. I did get to spend a month in Jordan Valley. That shop of mine sure looked inviting, but not yet. We will have a busy summer here what with ranch work, tours, playing a gig at a supper ride 5 nights a week and taking out horseback rides. Oh, and not to mention 3500 steers. I’ve gotta make a whole years living in 5 months. Carleen is again cooking at the lodge. If any of my old buddies are coming this way in the summer, send me a PM and we will see if we can get together. The only wood I will get close to this summer will be Aspen trees, saddle trees and my old guitar. Think of me as the shavings fly.

you two be safe up there
and enjoy your year

one of these days
the shop will beckon stronger
than anything else
and you can get home
and hang up your spurs

a hard but wonderful life you are living!

Wayne, I think, like some others that it is the jaws from some kind of stitching horse. I’ve never seen one like this but it would work. The rounded jaws are the top and the give away.

Well, Dennis, I won’t have that much to do with the cattle. I am getting to do some wood work, turning a barn into a stall barn for horses. Highly technical !!!
