This photograph was taken about 1917 in an underground mineshaft.
The horse was totally blind, as were all such horses due to a lifetime in total darkness.
It depicts the American way of life and the effort it took our forefathers to build this great country.
"Often, when I have been discouraged and despondent beyond words. I have looked at this picture and said to myself. "I will pull it one more mile."
With that attitude in mind and with an average amount of intelligence, any person can certainly make a success of their life in this land of free enterprise." -Ross Taylor

We enjoyed a Turkey Bowl with the Schrams and Yates families before having Thanksgiving Dinner with our small crew. Had wonderful leftovers all weekend long!! Got in a family horseback ride, complete with Nat riding backwards!! We hauled 50 bales of hay (with lots of help from RJ!) and we also went shooting out on Utah Hill. Lots of fun memories! Missed "the upper half" but thought of you lots!!

Obviously we REALLY miss Dallin, Nat and Kristy. . . the rest of you have been gone long enough to be "on your own!"
WE LOVE YOU ANYWAY!!!

Well, after our simple meal, and with the power still being off, I suggested we have a special Sunday snack...smores by way of the wood stove!! The coals were perfect, Hank was happy to be in the middle of things, and they turned out beautifully!! Only one problem, we used Cookies n Cream for the chocolate part...it didn't taste nearly as good as the Snickers Mil and I used when we didn't have plain Hershey chocolate. Oh well, it was fun anyway! ( See what y'all are missing out on?!?!)
