In the 90s due to Aimee’s health issues we had a little ranch on Countryman creek between Columbus and Reedpoint. The kids went to school in Reedpoint and Sue, along with running the place, owned and operated ERA Paradise properties. Successfully I might add.
We had about 12 broodmares and a stud at all times. It was a beautiful place with nice barn and a great home. I stayed in Jardine and ran the hunting operation.
Well at this time in her life Aimee was going to make movies. So she wrote the script and I bought the best camera I could afford. She got all of these people on horseback to show up and we spent three long days making a movie. It was a hit and we even rented it out at the local video store. Oh the local people would drive by back and forth wondering what in the heck was going on. I think in all she made 10 movies. Maybe!
What made me think of this is Brent Ryder, my nephew, is on the left with his hat off. I rode by his headstone today in my pasture. He drowned about two months after we took this photo. He was always up for stunts. A hell of a hand!!!
I know one thing is for sure: “Life’s never borin’ at Hellsaroarin.” 😊😅
