I have been going through some old family photos and scanning them into my computer. The photo below is of Brad's maternal grandfather, C.C. Dobson 1877 - 1947. The picture was taken in 1901.

I enhanced it and this was was reveled;

C.C. Dobson was the town butcher and farmed about a mile downstream of Brad's paternal grandfather, B.J. Lyons.

This is a picture of B.J. Lyons from his book, 'Thrills and Spills of a Cowboy rancher'. B. J. is on the darker horse on the right. This picture was taken in 1952 when B. J. would have been 83 years old.
It's been over 120 years and we're still living on and farming B.J.'s original homestead. It hasn't been easy at times, but we're still here.

I love the old photos! And I love that you're still on the family land. I bet there aren't many who can say that.
