....... ~ ~, .17 riders who pattie- weekend in the ride sponsored Beavers 4-H club County Horsemen's shown above. made the en- While another 40.. time. The ride ended Sunday at the club grounds on Sand Creek. During the 21/2.day event, the riders covered about $0 miles of country. District Forest Ranger John Windsor and his family joined the ride for the Saturday trip. Windsor gave a fireside talk Saturday night. Many parents joined the group for a potluck supper Saturday night. On Sunday, the Rev. Patterson Keller joined the group and held sunrise services before camp was broken. I just don't know what elese we can do. We have tried just about everything and still it does- n't rain. Ranchers are leaving they hay laying out on the ground, their wives are leaving the wash hanging out on the line. They go away from home and leave all the windows open. I washed my car two or three times. ,Couple of times I said prayers. What else can--"Dad! Say, the fishing was real good! Wasn't it?" What do you mean, the fishing was real good? I didn't catch a dog gone -- "Well, I thought it was real good fishing. The water was warm and Mommie let me swim for two hours! Are we going to go again? Can we go tomor- row? This time I'U take my Swim- ming suit! Mommie! Dad says we can go fishing again tomorrow." ~J~ now! We aren't going fish- ing--May be that's an idea. Get away back in the gumbo land and maybe it'll rain and give us all kinds of trouble before we can get out. When you see the grass start to curl and wilt you know the moisture is about shot. It wilts to close the pores and conserve moisture. That can go on only so long and then it goes dormant and cures out. This year the range grasses have grown only as tall as the litter left from last year. If you were prudent and didn't graze too close last year, this year you have some grass. The litter from last year is a real bonus to this years range. It keeps the range in the classification of "bites per acre instead of acres per bite". I ,wonder if we could get the Commercial Club, the Farm Bu- reau, the Farmers Union and maybe the Postmaster to put on a rain dance. I hear the Post- master is going to issue a decree to the effect that no matter how dry the weather is, all stamps must be licked and stuck, not pin. ned to the envelope. Speaking of dry--- Did you hear about the tittle kid eating with his knife? He told his mother he was trying to stay dry. His work leaked! . . Windy P. S. If it rains, call me. I don't want my kids to forget what it's like! 4~Vards were present- ~ight for various during the Sand ride held over the were Patty award; Dave cooperative; Judy Self sufficient; Dee thoughtful; Linda Simons, all-around girl trail rid- er; and Dallas Roll, all-around boy trail rider.
