Twister...Please send us some much needed rain here in very southern AL. I was an only child but...had many friends..both girls and boys and those days spent playing cowboys/cowgirls...what fun!...a few fights came along as to who would be RR and DE! We soon settled differences and had many hours of FUN.

Twister, that had to be so much fun for the kids and you. Nice to know the Roy and Dale legacy still brings hours of entertainment to kids today. They could not have better role models!!

Brenda, I hope your area gets some relief in your drought. I feel for the people in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. They need our prayers.

My boys 11 & 5 had a bunch of friends over last fall and they made a RR movie. There were 16 kids at our house and a few extra horses. WHEW! They had so much fun. It was cute. The local museum left our kids film part of it in there. I think some of us adults had just as much fun. The kids did a great job. The ages ranged from 2 years old up to 17 years old. It was so neat to see all the different age groups work together and have a blast. They spent three days here...I needed a week to recoop though... hee hee.

It seems to me, Twister, that you deserve a Medal of Valor or something like that. 16 kids and horses...WHEW!!

It seems to me that I remember seeing a cartoon somewhere about 2 little boys arguing which one was going to be Roy and which one would have to be Dale. The one boy's comment was, "...aw, come on, why can't I be Roy; I always have to be Dale...?"

As we had our little "war of words" on who would be RR.....everyone always wanted to be RR...DE and rest of gang were counted "second best" (at that time in our lives).

Poor Dale...always "second billing."

My parents always had kids at our house when we were growing up. My dad was somewhat neglected when he was growing up and wanted to make sure other kids weren't. He was always smiling (unless we really made him mad). He kind of reminded me of RR because when he smile his eyes disappeared. We just lost him to cancer a 1-1/2 ago. So hard.

so I guess I am passing my dad's legacy of helping kids. Every Wednesday right after school (so it doesn't interfere with church) I have 4-Hers out and we do horse clinics. They have a blast. It started with just a few and ended up have 6 or 7. Monday and Tues right after school I volunteer to coach soccer. This past year I coached the 4 & 5 year olds... When they scatter they scatter... I probably looked like a chicken with its head cut off the first couple practices.

Some days when the bus would stop the kids would just keep coming off. hee hee. my horses learned when Wednesday was and I had a hard time catching them.. hee hee.

Brenda, We only wish we could share our rain. We had a two year drought hear and at are still wary about complaining about rain... but we have more then we need at the moment. The flooding is horrible. We are fortunate to be high and sandy on our farm but the towns are not faring so well here. Keep them on your prayer lists.

Twister...We had a little rain around midnight last PM...so needed/just need buckets more!
There are many people that generously Volunteer their time with children and I know you enjoy what you do from the way you write. All Volunteer work I ever did was at the hospital and it was rewarding.
