Thanks brokeplex!

Even if it would have been impratical for Acquirre to fire immediately or nearly so both Jack and Ennis or one, surely he would have!

Even if not so easy to replace them! Since he cuts their time in half!! Really why so early??

Hugs!

It would have been bad economics to have fired them when he saw the two "rolling in the dust". It was still too early in the season and the sheep weren't yet fat enough on the allotment grass. When he did cut their summer short, it was August, that was late enough for it to pay economically.

Adopted or not as a child, Jack did stay with Ennis there for how many days?

Hugs!

Do you mean how many days were Jack and Ennis together after meeting in Aguirre's "chokey little trailer"?

Most ranchers in the Northern Rockies move their sheep up to the allotments in late May or Early June. Aguirre told them to shove 'em down in the middle of August. So counting the 2 days they were in Signal and the 2 days during and after shove down. I would say they were together a little over  2 1/2 months.

Wow, 2 1/2 months maybe Ennis and Jack were together then... on the mountain!

How many more after that?

Hugs!

Brokeplex, did you see this subject:
Alma jr. was intelligent and must have known that her father was bi or gay?

She did think about family life!! That is what makes me think that she knew that Ennis, her father was a bi or gay man!!

You think so too, maybe?

Hugs!

...
May I add that maybe she did think also that Jack could have been an adopted child?

yes, I saw that thread and was appalled at some of the condescension directed towards Alma Jr by some of the posters. I verbally objected to their pretentious attitude towards Alma jr. I am in the corner that Alma was a smart young lady and she wanted perhaps to know her fathers true nature.

I am glad that you say that Alma Jr. wanted to know her father's true nature!

I believe that too! It seems to me that there are many proofs of that!


I think that she accepts that he father is a bi or gay man!
And, therefore, I find her very intelligent for that!
You think so too?

Hugs!
