It’s a beautiful snowy day in northern Wyoming, and we’re glad to see it. This has been an especially dry winter, so we cherish every flake we get. The best part of the day has been watching the gauzy clouds drifting over the faces of the mountains and the white tailed deer leaping through the drifts in the backyard. We’re supposed to have sub-zero temperatures all next week. That means life will basically come to a halt here. Birds will hide in the trees and animals find warm spots to stay put until the worst passes. More and more, we are all dreaming of spring.
Thanks again to everyone for all your emails and cards. We’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of congratulations we’ve received after winning the Western Writers of America’s “Owen Wister Award” for outstanding contributions to Western literature. We’re still a little dazed. And honored. And humbled. As promised, we will let you know the date for our upcoming installation in the Western Writers Hall of Fame. Hopefully it will be a warm June day.
