It´s been real windy here in southern Wyoming today with wind gusts up to 50mph. Driving west or east on I-80 has been a challenge cause once I hit 60-65 mph, my little black car is gets hard to steer. There are lots of horse trailers on the roads here and just about every time I´ve met one, I´ve caught myself thinking "it could be bad on the highway with the horse trailer". But at least Ennis was planing on having horses in his trailer - traveling with an empty trailer must be much worse.

Tonight my friend and I stopped at Dairy Queen and each got an ice cream. I had my cone in one hand and her cell phone in the other and then, because she was driving, my friend asked if I'd hold her cone for a minute. I said, "If I had three hands, I could."

Thanks, Bud! I came back here to add that, for extra authenticity, I said it in a Wyoming accent.

     Be careful out there on the road.  It is not always the one with the horse trailer.  Sometimes its a motorhome, or a semi that gets hit with a gust of wind that is blown into the opposite side of the road...

Who said this?

“Love and trust, in the space between what’s said and what’s heard in our life, can make all the difference in the world. ”

Remind you of something?

Sure enough.

There was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe...

No idea though who said it (the sentence you quoted of course ;D).

You bet, friend. The person who said that first quote was Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers.

I felt a bite down today. So tonight I toke a walk down the lake. For once we had good weather so it wasn´t that chilly. While I was walking alongside seasore, close to the camping area. I suddenly saw a brokeback sign...



We have got our OWN Jack´s Café.
