|MORE STEEL GOING IN FOR THE TEMPORARY BRIDGE|
Thursday we are off to London's University Hospital where Kelly has a 2 p.m. consultation appointment with her Hepatology Gastroenterology Doctor. While she's there I will zip over to Henry's Camera Store and pick myself up a protective lens hood and filter for my Nikon CP900.
::Memory Lane:: In tonight's Memory Lane post we go back to March 14th 2009 when Kelly and I went back into the Chiricahua Mountains for the second time in search of Old Fort Rucker and this time we found it. No easy feat. Not only did we find old Fort Rucker but we were to find out the old house on the property once belonged to Mary Kidder Rak and her husband Charlie. It is the house you will see in my Photo Album as well as Old Fort Rucker. She wrote a book called The Cowman's Wife which chronicles her and her husband Charlie's lives in the very house I have in my photo album. I really recommend this book. The hard struggles they endured, the good times, and the in between times. This was the true west many years ago when endurance was a common factor. Kelly and I visited Old Fort Rucker and Mary Kidder Rak's homestead a number of times during our ranch sitting days and what I think I will do is keep the whole Fort Rucker and Mary Kidder Rak story together and feature some of those trips over the next few posts.
