"Has it got very cold there at night? Is it alright to go out far nights, I mean do you have to be wary of wild animals there?"
Thanks for watching the show, Dad, and here are your answers:
(1) YES! Sometimes it gets to freezing at night. Mornings are chilly, but by after lunchtime we are good to go to hit the river beach for a sunny warm couple of hours in the low 70s or so (feels warmer, but sometimes there's a chilly breeze on the river's bend).
(2) NO and YES! It is pitch black out there in front of our place. In back there's one big "streetlight" ... but we don't venture outside much after dark. We had to read a pamphlet about cougars and bears and how to act if you encounter one, so that has us freaked out!
(3) Bonus answer: Dad, you know the kids are wild animals, so I ALWAYS have to be wary!
There's a triangle out back so I can call people in for dinner ... we are totally Ma and Pa Kettle out here!
The dog here at Kingfisher Bend Ranch, Socks, is the perfect bribe to get my kids to do anything! If Sam is having a fit, we just ask if he wants to give Socks a treat or wants to go pet Socks and he's happy. Looks like we'll be getting a dog in October after all.
As for music here in Evanston, Wyoming, let's just say there's plenty of country but I found THREE great rock stations ... the only catch is they only play stuff from the 70s and 80s. So I get to go back in time on a regular basis, but when I get home I'll be uncool on the music scene. That's okay.
