What a Treat

I am so glad I attended tonight's Cowboy Poetry by Joe Herrington. Joe is the brother of one of our islanders, otherwise we probably would never get the opportunity to see him.

If you've never experienced cowboy poetry, it's fantastic. In my humble opinion anyway. It rings of all the good and true values that seem to be slipping away from our society; honesty, hard work, honor, respect. It was very refreshing and fun to say the least. I teared up at some of the stories for their raw truths and the values they represented.

Thank you Joe for your time and your stories, they were much appreciated!

I just wanted to send a note of thanks for your blog. It has given me a lot of insight and info on living out there. I will be leaving on the 11th for a contract on roi. Excited and nervous. Thanks!

Glad to hear it. I'm continually surprised at the number of people who contact me for more information before taking jobs out here.

I'm even more surprised at how many I've met through the blog and then get to see face to face when they get here.

Travel safe and I hope I'll get the chance to meet you after you arrive!
