During my childhood we took lots of trips back to the family home in Montana. On my first trip in 1950 I met uncle Lon who was an expert horseman.
Lon lived on a stump ranch in Kalispell Montana. He introduced me to horses and it changed my life. I will never forget the first horse I rode; or the wonderful fishing trip he took me on in Montana when I was just seven years old. I will always hold his memory in high regard.
Uncle Lon was my grandma's brother; they both grew up in Montana. Grandma had some great stories of her own to tell. She told me about the original family homestead in Creston, Montana.
