Gotta love the aroma in a feed store. So, this is also the place where Ken Lake made his connection for his load of bulls to Montana. This is also where you can get hooked up with some of those Cattle Baron cigars I mentioned.

Christmas Stories While Shopping and Strolling
Buying Local In Pinedale
by Terry Allen
December 12, 2016

Dave Schwab out at Pinedale lumber told me a lady from New York called him and asked how much a deck for her son would cost. After getting some particulars, Dave sold her a gift certificate for $2500.00.

I ran into Finley and Micah Strong in Ridleys and they told me the number one thing they wanted for Christmas was to see their grandparents. Their Mother Natalie said it was going to happen.

Mike Grove over at Rocky Mountain Home Center showed me a stuffed bear he has, and we decided it must be a Black and Grizzly cross due to the small hump in its neck.

Ken Williams was getting some Hi-Rev mocha coffee at Obos and we got to talking about moving cattle which is what he does in his semi. Hed just taken a load of bulls up to Montana and the rancher had given him a Cattle Baron cigar. I said I was a cigar smoker and Ken said he liked to smoke one while he drank a Bloody Mary. When I said Id have to get me one, he went out to his truck and got that Cattle Baron cigar and gifted me with it. Thanks Ken.

Rilee works at Verizon and the funniest story she has heard in the phone business is when a young couple broke up. The girl called the phone in as stolen and then gave him a list of everything she had bought him. She placed a dollar value on it all and then added interest. She wanted all that cash back.

Randy Belton at ReBel Auto Parts was flying his flag at half mast in honor of John Glenn. John was also a Marine, so Randy had his Marine flag flying, too.

Aaron Fandek was all right posing for a photo and since I was curious I asked him how he got into saddle making. "I was doing a little bit of leather work up in Billings, but I had never made one," he said. "After a while, I decided Id make a saddle for myself. When other people saw it they wanted one too and so I just kept a goin".

Thanks to everyone for all your stories and all your Christmas treats. It's a real nice way to spend a couple days.

A big thanks to Dawn at Pinedaleonline for sponsoring this photo-story. I know she hired me to do it because she wants to encourage people to buy locally. I sure do appreciate that she likes my stories of local folks.
