Back Home

Well we are back from our holiday with Doug & Cindy. Traveled to Saskatchewan and visited the Elford Ranch for about a week and the Pituley Farm for a few days. It was great time surrounded by good friends. Highlights for me (Tim) included:

– moving cows with Kelcy & Colby & others, including checking cows in snow and good time spent chatting with Colb the first day on the ranch. (much pain in muscles followed the next day)
– seeing Tara jump in to ranch work, “processing” calves
– good food at table’s surrounded by even better company
– great music with Clint, Mark, Dawn, Doug & others, style’s mixed, heart’s all on the same page
– political rants with Rick, well mostly listening to Rick I guess
– mmmmm… time on the John Deere lawn tractor, it doesn’t get much better than that, unless you’re Tim Bell and you get to drive a really big version I guess…
– “parts run” with Elwood and a great talk along the way
– stories of God at work on my friends
– Miracle Provision stories for ranchers in a very tough time.
– birthing times at the Pituley place
– hospitality, welcome, hospitality, welcome and some more of that
– ranch language
– Tara and ranch language
– worship with the Wood Mountain church
– gopher shoot with Mark & Doug: 550 rounds later…
– great travel in every way with Doug & Cindy, good memories made, friendship expanded.

All good memories and a holiday worth being thankful for – but it’s good to be home as well, now it’s time to put my good dog to bed and head there myself.
