Well, it’s that time of year again. I do always try to get on here and wish my old friends the very best for the holiday season. I even finished a project for a Christmas present but let it get away with the customer before I took pictures. ...

I used to operate 2 businesses in my shop in Jordan Valley, Oregon; Thos. Angle Saddlery and Owyhee Design. For many years I ranched and built saddles on the side. I also built furniture as I needed it. I always wanted to see what would happen if I combined the two. That is what I was doing at Owyhee Design. I used carved leather in door panels and as inlays in mirrors and table skirts. I still built the occasional custom saddle as well as chinks and tack. I also built custom kitchens and about anything else that came along. I designed all the various things I built. The economy ended the business in 2008. In March of 2009, I moved to North Central Wyoming to work for the Padlock Ranch. I sold off all my machinery and kept only hand tools and the saddle shop.
In February, 2010, the job with the Padlock ended. We have now returned to our home in Jordan Valley. Since then I have spent my summers working for Snake River Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and entertaining.

Well, I got out of the hospital yesterday and am now home with a brand new KNEE. No more cortizone in that one. I will say it hurts pretty good. In the interest of the COWBOY WAY, I have two bags of frozen vegetables tied on either side of it wit...
