Wintery Days

The Simmons' aren't people that like to stay home and off of the horses, but when winter weather doesn't cooperate we find other avenues to suffice our range roaming hearts. Often times we will take off on a road trip to parks and places of nature to at least capture in our hearts a little bit of the outdoors and talk and dream of greener pastures and times of hitting the trails again. Other times we will load up and hit the antique malls searching for old relics that remind us of our favorite past time and cowboy times of old. On one of our recent jaunts I came across this really neat old game board. It looks to be from maybe the 40's to 60's according to the pictures and colors that were used. At any rate I thought it was a great find for our collection. Hopefully one day we can finish our dream of having a "pool room" above the garage where we can spend some of these snowy days! Meanwhile.....we along with an old friend are already planning a summer of "Back in the Saddle Again"....Virginia is looking pretty good....or maybe even one of my favorite places....Big South Fork, TN..........Rollin, Rollin, Rollin, Keep those doggies Rollin........Happy Trails!
