Welcome to our ranch near Canada's west coast in Beautiful British Columbia's West Chilcotin mountain region. Where calling the vet means hollering back at the house to bring your kit, new friendships are formed from the back of a horse and true fun for a five year old is getting a machete for Christmas. Where 'cutting the dinks off' has a totally different meaning than what first comes to mind, Muck Boots are a household name, a hand shake still means something and the coffee is always on.

Bits and Pieces

First I want to say "thank you" to everyone who read my last post and either commented or wrote a personal email.  Your views are appreciated.   
Our MLA, that I wrote the letter for, wrote back directly and asked to send the letter on to others in government.  I have no doubt it won't do any good, but what the heck, at least I've had my say from my soapbox.  I'd like to write another post to follow up.....but another time.  
    Meanwhile, back on the ranch, life continues.  
Pretty much feeding cows, fencing and chores.  The stock are all look good; it's been a pretty easy winter really.  

Jackson is working on fire while Ben waits impatiently.  Dealer is hoping to share some goodies.  Charley and I had just 'stood up' the fence behind the boys.  

Ben is quite good on his skis behind the snowmobile.  

Salmon, ready for the smoker!  YUM!  

 A good friend and her daughter are staying with us at the moment, and Amy loves to cook!  Very awesome.  She has taken over kitchen duty (oh darn!) so I've taken the advantage of having a bit of extra time and been taking on some overdue home projects......laying laminate floor at the moment.  And then some painting....and making new countertops (we are still on the designing process of that one).....
Before we know it, all this 'extra time' will be a past memory and we will know nothing but cows and calving.....  hard to believe how quickly that is coming around.   

Cheers all!
