NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: Winter Vista's Shadows

As my eyes register this vista  of God’s bountiful loveliness, my pulse quickens with joy for His generosity.

101 Ranch and Wild West Show

101 Ranch traveled from city to town advanced by uncle
My mom’s uncle was an advance-man  for the traveling 101 Ranch.   That meant he went to the city/town  ahead of the others to advertise their arrival.   From the photos, I conclude that they traveled by train.   Our family is fortunate that these photos survived.   My cousin’s surviving daughter  allowed me to scan the album.   (I wish they were mine,  but am glad that they are being well-cared for.)  These photos and others are in the album my great-uncle compiled while working for the 101 Ranch.
