The Spirit of Freedom


We are a country of free thinkers, liberal and conservative alike.  We, as a people, come together united in freedom of religion, politics, creed.   Texas represents to us, a large independent union filled with free spirit.

We love the Fort Sisseton Historical Festival.  We love the beautiful countryside, the wonderfully restored fort, patrick wagonthe June weather.    Every spring we head just a little west for days of revisiting old friends, the Swanson’s, the Patrick’s, the McCaffre’s, and more.  The festival has lots to offer, art, militaryatfortmountain men, soldiers cowboys, wagons, , campfires, and fun.

We love western artwork, and love to share it when possible.  We are trying to make sure we attribute the artist, because by golly, they deserve the praise both legally and morally.  Here is one found on the internet that made us happy, simply because one of our winter projects has been watching all of the Deadwood series. Tough job huh?
