Raised on a remote rugged ranch in Wyoming to be self sufficient. Family oriented, unceasingly curious about many subjects.Always in awe of nature. I work hard at watching other people work hard.

Hey Dad

Hey Dad….how would you like to do an Alien Al Blog on the Firnecast? I have quietly pondered this question and of course I don’t mind helping my kids if I can, but what in the world would anyone want to follow my blog for? I have thought that if I start it should be with some over the top contemplation’s. It’s nice to think about, but attaining it may be another story, so let me begin. I will finish this thought at the end of this beginning story.
