Growth and the good life
Over the last couple of weeks I've heard from a growing chorus of people - and some of you aren't going to like this - that Sisters is "losing its small-town appeal."

Bull by Bull
• At age 75 I feel like I've finally come into my own: My go-to place is wherever I'm at. My kitchen window perfectly frames my lawn ... just enough lawn for me and my 32-year-old mower. I am one of the laziest people I know. Luckily I have enough OCD in me to get everything done that needs doing, including trying to be better about letting my old Bronco warm up. I know I, myself, need more of said warming up.

The Bunkhouse Chronicle - 8-Ball
With the rodeo back in town I've been thinking about horse-wrecks. Depending on how you look at it, it's either fortunate or unfortunate that I have a considerable library of personal wrecks to choose from. It's a qualifying roster of equine catastrophes that would, sadly, make more of a book than a column - something like Thomas McGuane's marvelous musings about the cutting-horse crowd in "Some Horses" - but in the spirit of all things dust and blood and the roar of a Sunday crowd, I thought I'd take a crack at it.

Silence is consent
Any reader of this space is free to despise my thoughts, my writing, or even me personally. The difference between my worldview and theirs is that I would never attempt to silence their voice, or demand that they live the way I do.

Which pet is right for you?
Sharing your life with a pet has great benefits and can bring you great joy. As well as the unconditional love, affection and friendship that pets provide, there are also therapeutic benefits that go along with being a pet parent, such as improved general health and well-being.

The Stormy Daniels upper
I didn't watch the Stormy Daniels interview. For one thing I was busy cleaning my AR-15s - which are, in fact, an excellent choice for target shooting, hunting, and home defense - and for another thing I just assume that she is telling the truth and that her skillset really is worth $130k a pop, if not much, much, more.
