Thought it was time for our trails to cross again. How is the employment situation progressing? I've found over the years that sometimes there has to be sacrifice to put beans on the table. A person who wants the "cowboy life" has to realize it starts in the heart with their trust in the Lord, and taking care of family and putting self behind. (Oops, sorry, don't mean to be a-preachin'.)
We're looking at a hot, dry summer here in Texas. Once you mentioned coming this way, but if you plan on leaving the hills there in Missouri be prepared for some thirsty boots to come your way.
