A Sad Day

A Sad Day

Today is a sad day.  My daughter has come to pick up the rest of her stuff from the ranch after moving to Alpine, Texas to complete her masters degree.  I miss my two-year old grandson but am glad to be back in charge of the ranch.  I’ve been cleaning up the barn, tool shed, her home and the hunter’s cabin.  It has been a lot of work but very satisfying.  After being here alone for 12 years, she has been here for three years.  Her presence allowed me to do a lot of traveling and publish my first book.  My second book is near completion and I am planning trips for the remainder of the year.  She’s taking her horses and dog, not that I will miss them that much.  They were more trouble than pleasure for me and I will convert their stalls into work areas.  Friends are helping me with the heavy stuff.  While I am happy for her and wish her the best, it is still a sad day at the ranch, aptly titled Ambush Hill because the beauty is so spectacular that it ambushes you.  You can partake of the beauty by going to the website www.ambushhillranch.com.
