David lived on the Medano Ranch for several years and is now raising his two sons on Chico Basin Ranch with his wife Tess.

Last weekend Matthias and Paula from Germany and the Reiss family from New York spent a lot of time in the high prairie with us moving cattle. They were all great guests and Matthias and I got to talking about the wonders of whiskey. He is a connoisseur and thinking of starting up his own distillery in Germany.

Everyone had fun and after a big meal we all sat around and Duke and I had our first public “concert”. We played all night long and dug deep into the song list and ended up playing for a few hours. By the end of the night we probably played every single song we knew between the two of us, which means Duke knew most of them and lead the way. Like a human juke box. It was a fun night.
