1990 proved a very big year- retired from the Army and got married to a wonderful bride, Deanna. Taught school for about 4 months then moved back to Las Cruces,NM to work for a contractor at White Sands Missile Range as a department manager-Deanna worked for the school district. We moved back to Ok in 2002 so my Deanna could take the school superintendent position- I spent the first year back overseeing the total renovation of our home. May 2003 saw us move out to the "country" and then got started with 7 momma cows and had our first calf in july- after a couple of years we went into a larger operation with our grandson-in-law and grew our operation to over 80 mommas and 2 very happy bulls. I learned about hay, feed cubes, repairing barb wire fences,and all sorts of neat things to include a 1965 John Deere 4020 tractor and a Kawasaki mule and of course pick-up trucks. I also became the Indiahoma gofor as well as basketball announcer and base/softball grounds person. Unfortunately last summer brought us a severe drought and although we had plenty of water NO HAY and folks were hauling hay in from northern states at about $120 to 150 a large round bale so we had to sell off our stock- hopefully we'll get back into it next spring- still not getting any good rain in SW Ok
We are so looking forward to Oct 2013- By the way as a "blenda family" we have 21 grand and 2 great grand kids- and loving them all- unfortunately they are all not close- east tex, pensacola, salt lake, ft hood tex, fredrick ok, elmer ok, oklahoma city ok, cache ok.
Who would have thunk it 49 years ago- love the life!!!!!!!!
