Darrel,
I imagined the whole thing in my mind.
I was there with you. I have had an elk hunter walk into camp when it was dark and raining, he probably looked like your lost dog...
Yep, you paint a picture that I can step into... They have killed several "cats" here in Gillette this winter. what a shame. and a huge full curl ram, that came down and stay with domestic sheep. I talked to the game warden about hunters being able to harvest them, but there is always a good reason for safety sake.
My wife wants me to get a dog. So glad she is back with you.

Darrel, as you sat by the fire that night, counting your blessings, you were walking with God. What a tremendous experience.

I will make up the bed for you and your family whenever you come this way. Come late and leave early,if necessary that will be our agreement.
