Whats that saying about the size of a mans woodpile = severity of winter? Well i think it's geographically contrary because not only are we prepared this year to "sharp shoe" pops and myself with ice cleats; i also bought snowshoes, 2 tire chains, 2 cables for the fronts. Haven't had but a dusting of snow in the valley this winter and the next 10 days are forecasted mild.
Should have known better since La Niņa and El Niņo years around here tend to be mild regardless of the precipitation dump or lack of

On December 27, 1989,after working for the JA for 73 years, Thomas Everett Blasingame climbed off his horse Ruidosa, stretched out on the grass, folded his arms across his chest and died. He was buried in the ranch cemetery with cowboys who had worked the ranch since the 1870's. Blasingame lived alone at a camp in the canyon, without a phone or electricity. His one luxury was his transistor radio. He tried to never miss a Rangers game. He visited his wife Eleanor on weekends. She lived in Claude, north of the ranch.
Eleanor, who died in 1999 and is buried beside Tom, said, "His life was a better life than what you and I live. He doesn't worry about more than one thing at a time and that's what he is doing right then."

Slinger, I could read stories about people like that all day.

There were a few articles about Tom Blasingame in Western Horseman, once they discovered how old he was and still punching.
Working below sea level in the Imperial Valley CA. Tom said it was "too hot for raising healthy cattle and bad for a persons skin. Cowboys that stayed there had poor complexions." Imagine a West Texas wind chiseled waddie concerned about the texture of his hide. It must have been bad. The big thing down there these days is beet top ranching
He mentioned one time seeing Charlie Goodnight of the JA Ranch poke his head into a pen where the crew was working cattle, and quickly disappeared because there were too many men around that would inevitably ask him questions about the old day's; Commanches, Cattalo and such.
There was also a feral cowboy in Arizona with whom Tom apprenticed. His name was Arch, and he could gather and turn a bunch of wild cattle all by himself efficiently as a lobo wolf. Tom didn't stick around long enough to master that specific skill, but figured he'd picked up enough technique over the decades to earn his keep.

Evening Cowboy Marines,
Haven't had much to say lately because I don't feel good
Don't even feel like riding, haven't even fed the horses the last week I let Karen do it.
I have done lots of things in my time but the one thing I would like to do before I bite the dust is meet Slinger, Montana and SDK you are my kind of people
Nothing like being in the saddle riding and nothing but wildlife making noise.
I will never spend the time in the saddle like I've done but hope I at least feel like breaking leather sometime in the near future.
Thanks for all the stories and memories

I don't get it, eventually this happened to every pair of jeans i've owned since i was old enough to leave the house on my own, so why expedite the process.
But if you must, here's the quick and dirty method^

Hang tough Redman1, that's about all a guy can do besides exam his diet and lifestyle. I'll bet an MD would be the one to locate a problem if there is something brewing inside that needs to be addressed.
Ever tried fasting? I've completed 5 days a couple times and 3 or less many times. Water fasts beyond 3 days are tough, juice fasting (fresh produce extracted from a juice machine) is not, especially if you must continue working for a living. Bottled juice fasts and treated tap water fasts are hardly as effective
The first couple, few days of a good fast are often accompanied with aches and stiffness = detox, and that could be enough for a tune up
