Home again in Beach, ND
Once we arrived in Beach, ND I began to realize how very blessed I am. I began getting messages of welcome from my many friends here, and I received equally as many messages from my California friends telling me I was missed. I have the best of both worlds filled with love during my North Dakota stays and also in California.
There is nothing better than to know you are loved.
My daughter Tiffany has been photographing and observing the wild horses in Theodore Roosevelt National Park for about three years. This week one of her favorite stallions; Gray Ghost passed.
She hiked out to pay her respects. While there she witnessed the buffalo surround the horse as if mourning him. After she relayed the experience in her blog at Dakota Grown Photos it exploded with new follows. This week her story was featured top of the fold front page of the Fargo Forum. Being an old newspaper hack, I know top of the fold front page is a big deal.
I’ve always been proud of Tiffany and her photo talent. But I am most proud of her compassion and true love and respect she has for these beautiful animals she photographs.
Her work can be seen at Tin Ceiling Mercantile in Beach or online at dakotagrownphotos.com. Take a look. There are some truly beautiful photos there.
We attended the annual Home on the Range (HOTR) Basket Bash last night. There were wonderful donated auction items, raffle prizes and food. All of the money raised is used to purchase Christmas gifts for the children at HOTR. This effort blesses many children who may not otherwise have Christmas gifts. Well done HOTR and the folks that donate, attend and buy.
We are snug in our ND house. We are assembling furniture and decorating. My kitchen is ready for Christmas baking. Life is good today.
