    Small Town ‘Smith’s...

    Just want to show off my place a bit. :-)

    My town of 260 boasts 12 business buildings. We’re 30 miles to the next closest town, bank and grocery stores.

    Its been a dream of mine since I was a kid - and honestly, being here in Wyoming? I wouldn’t have prayed big enough to have the experiences I have now to share with my 14 year old son. Thank you Lord.

    Yesterday they trailed a couple hundred cows down the stock drive at the bottom of my driveway. I waited and watched enjoying the bellowing mommas, vocal calves and clippity clop horses with their riders high up giving orders to the cow dogs to keep all that beef flowing one way. Because...5 short years ago it was loud car stereos, police and fire truck sirens and neighbors screaming at each other.

    With the East Gate of Yellowstone opening May 1st., I no longer know every car and truck I see on the highway. But those tourists with their knee-high socks and flip flops are good for this little town.

    My building was originally the Post Office, then turned into a jewelry/gun and trinket store. After sitting a few years it was our Towns Bank until that moved out. If you zoom in you can see actual Stock Brands (cattle and sheep brands) scortched into the building.

    We travel before or after the tourist season and stop at all kinds of interesting places and actually have conversations.

    My long time Army buddy from over in NoDak tells me you guys hold a pretty good buffalo gun shoot there in Tensleep. He's a pretty serious competitor with his Sharps. If my rusty and trusty trapdoor finishes in the middle of the pack I am tickled.
