We take care of the land...it takes care of us.

We're just a couple of country dwellers......

that love nature, hunting, fishing, gardening, campfires, crafting, cooking, canning, laughter and living!!

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Poetry From the Prairie

Badger Clark
1883 - 1957

Author, lecturer, poet and South Dakota's first Poet Laureate.
His philosophical devotion to the idea of rugged individualism
 and his love for the great outdoors was reflected in his life and his writings.
"Small Town" is typical of this devotion to Dakota
and it's friendly people.

Today I am thankful for my quiet little life on this quiet little prairie.
Nearby is a small town full of great folks that know me by name.
I am not just another face, but someone they stop and say hello to.
Great people - great friends surround me and support me.
Yes, today I am thankful for small towns and great folks!

Let this time of gathering with friends and family be a time of joy and peace!
