We are in Moab this weekend helping the Moab chapter of the NWTF with their banquet. It is Leslie and Josh's 1st anniversary and she is here with us. She love doing the Turkey Banquets and Josh had to work late tonight so she decided to come with us. We hiked to Delicate Arch today. Leslie thought she was going to die. Delicate Arch was beautiful, it was a very nice hike. We then went to Castle Valley winery. Leslie has never been to a winery, I think she had fun. We like the lighter sweeter wines, Mike likes the reds. The temperature here is upper 60's beautiful.
Have a nice day!

Sad Day

As most of you know by now, our Africa stuff arrived safely in the states. The tanner did not have room to store the horns, he shipped them to Utah, they were received on Jan. 23 in West Valley City. Early Jan. 28 there was a fire in West Valley at an auto body shop. The fire got out of hand and burned three businesses to the ground! Yes you guessed it. All of our stuff gone! Ron's 340 bull elk, gone! My very first deer, gone! I guess horns make nice tinder! What a blow! so far 2009 has not been the best of years! Our Jeep blew an engine, $2,000, Crystal's work did not take out enough taxes so they owed alot of money for that, and then the fire! Some would say at least we have the memories, that is true but it is still very sad. We were so looking for the trophy mounts.
