Fifteen years ago, in a horrible downpour, I was on a mission to meet Lexington Walters to see if she was interested in selling her place. As the blinding rain continued to fall, I drove my vintage Ford Mustang onto a covered bridge that soon collapsed as a flash flood destroyed it.
Lex, having been caught in the downpour while she was fixing a nearby fence, dove into the water and rescued me. That was the first of many adventures we’ve had as we persevere against the likes of cattle rustlers, escaped convicts, natural disasters, and misguided relatives.
Now we’re the parents of two young girls, Lorrie and Mel and our son, Eddie. Our greatest adventure is raising our children.
