Barbara Hunter ‘s New Poetry Book Release

I am pleased to share that one of our wonderful guests at the ranch has finished her poetry book “The Road to Harmony”, Barbara Hunter has shared all of those wonderful feelings we do not share when when traveling those back country roads less traveled .. She has taken pen in had and has published one of my all new time favorites .. I would recommend this as a true special gift for any one wanting to share those special moments that are some times lost .. While at the ranch she was inspired to write about it and we are so blessed that she did.. If you look on her page 44 you will find it .. If several of you would like to meet her I would be proud to have her as one of our special guests and bring along a new poem and several of her books .. A  line form her poem goes ::” A beetle lights on the arm of a small child driving the wagon — ” go away bug ,go away,” no tears this girl is a tracker; knows the ranch and reads the critter’s marks in the dusty road. As most of you will know the small child is my daughter Carlie , Thanks Barb love your work.. Carl

An Anniversary Weekend

What a tremendous idea: an idyllic epic anniversary weekend with just the two of you . Spent  within the historic and romance of yesterday.. Celebrating  all that the two of you have together ,under a luminous sky, surrounded by all the beauty that  Nature has brought forward for your special celebration. An anniversary is a peak moment in your lives and a family fete for the ages. In our busy world , taking time away to celebrate can  sometimes be rare, yet what  better way to show that special someone of your life how much they mean to you than to dedicate the whole weekend to such a special time .. No matter what the celebration may be let us take the worry out of the special time you will spend together . We have worked many wishes at The Ranch , so just ask no problem is to big or small for us..

Let the timieless unhurried setting of The Ranch honor your timeless love. Celebrate your anniversary or special time at The Ranch a  place capturing a-bygone-era in all of its beauty and grace .
