Superb painting that says it all. The Deep State is the enemy among us.

Lenie came along not long after I launched the magazine. She got caught up in the dream too -- build your own house in the woods, start a new life, etc.

And here she is tricycling inside the cabin before I put insulation in the walls. That's our dog, Springer.

Since we went quarterly, Kindle timing would have also changed. It is probably that.

I eventually put in indoor plumbing but it took me a while.

We took our baths outdoors in a container once used to haul fish to market, after heating our water in an old bathtub I placed atop rocks around a campfire in front of the porch.

She also learned a lot about cattle ranching. I'm the guy on top in this photo helping ready a steer for branding, shots, and for "changing his mind" as the locals called it.

Annie became familiar with dowsing back then. Here she is with Vernon Hopkins, a neighbor who dowsed many neighbors wells. We wrote an article about Vernon in the early years of Backwoods Home Magazine.

We eventually moved the offices of Backwoods Home Magazine into the house, so Annie would still be riding, coming by now and then to visit with the editors. This is John Silveira, senior editor.

As Annie grew and learned to ride well enough, she went on cattle round-ups with the neighbors whose cows often wandered off into the woods. Here she is with Pat Ward and Stevie Odom of Fall Creek Ranch.

It wasn't long before she was riding. Here she is on Balsam, which was owned by Ursula Kosling on a nearby ranch.

Annie discovered horses pretty early in life. Here she meets a colt next door at Fall Creek Ranch. Our Spring Creek ran right into Fall Creek.
